LMAO. I guess you read through it already?

In that case you're probably on the right track with 00 buck. Best of luck to ya.

Another vote for 3" magnum #4 buckshot. 00 will kill em, just not enough pellets.

I think you missed the whole point.

To address your original question...."OO Buck" IS the shot size. blink

What people are telling you is that you will be missing more coyotes with 00 buck than anything.

The prefered shot choice for coyote hunters are listed in the article you dismissed as being turkey loads.
GC has killed many many coyotes with a shotgun & knows what he's talking about...(He's the guy that wrote that story the link was to.)
If you are serious about shooting and killing coyotes with a shotgun you may want to reconsider reading that article. wink

If you are not serious about getting good advice from veteran hunters, why bother to ask the question?

I'm not trying to agitate, but your signature is this:

Predators West- Population control
M2D camo The Best
Ty's Predator calls

and you're a "Seasoned Member". So you plug what I assume is some type of predator control business and predator calls and have been on here long enough to post 250+ times and yet act like you have NEVER seen a discussion on preferred shot size.

I've been on here 2 weeks and have been properly educated on the preferred and popular shot loads for coyote hunting and I've been calling since oh, this past December. Color me confused.

ummmm, Even though it says [re:rockinbbar], he wasn't really replying to rockinbbar. He was replying to the guy that wants to hunt coyotes with 00 buck. That guy that don't wanna use none of those wimpy azz turkey loads like lead number 4 buck shot, copper coated lead BB's, Hevi-Shot Dead Coyote "T" shot, Remington Wingmaster HD BB's or Predator "T" shot and Hevi-Shot waterfowl "B" shot.

Still confused?
