Coyote Shotshell


Recommended Posts

What do you guys think is the best shell-choke combination for shooting coyotes?

 

If you can get close enough....definitely a 00 Buckshot or something similar with a modified choke.

I'd recommend a small caliber rifle, .22 if you are worried about collateral damage. It doesn't take much to knock down a coyote, but getting close can be a challenge.

BB through #4 buck and whatever choke will sling it the tightest. You might very well have good luck with a turkey-choke and BB for all you know. MOD is definitely not the end of the road with small shot like this. In fact, using OO buck I improved patterns down to .685" constriction with one choke. (be careful with this new "heavy" type shot, it's very hard and might not be suited to a turkey choke)

We have a coyote that has been hanging around our neighborhood and I would like to get rid of the problem before it gets rid of our cat or attacks our dogs.

 

I live in Ohio and there are no restrictions on hunting coyote because they are overpopulated.

 

I own a Mossberg 500 Field/Slugster Combo. I assumed that using the rifled barrel with a slug would be my best option.

 

Would I be better off using that or some other shotshell with the field barrell?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

The words slug and neighborhood are never a good idea together. Shotshells would be better.

 

You could poison a cat and use it to bait the yote.:cool:
