So I was out this afternoon. Around 245ish. And about 330 I herd a ton of racket coming from the adjacent ridge . About t mins goes buy and I see two little skippers running for everything they had. Looked very very weak . And right behind then was a pack of yote' s I have never seen more then two in the woods. Together.. lucky for the deer I had the gun. Can't say the same for the dogs. . I did get a couple of them and gave the little ones a break. .

Great job native kill them all

Nice shooting. New coyotes will eventually expand into the vacated territory after one is killed. Best way to impact fawn survival rate is to remove coyotes in April/May just before the fawns are born. That way it buys the fawns a little time. I have never done any predator hunting but am interested to try

Jax. I can honestly say at least 8 in the pack. First one are a slug at 40 yards and got back up and took off . It was bigger then my 100 pound pits. ..second and third loom lime they got gutted . As they turned and burnt back up hill with guts hanging out. Honestly don't like to harvest anything in that form but with that many that close knowing I only had three rounds in the gun . I was grabbing at straws.

I had a 6 pointer working its way in yesterday when all of a sudden he took off like a rocket. About a min later a pack of 7 or 8 all black yotes came through right on its trail. I didnt shoot thinking that i can maybe still harvest a deer. Wishing now that i would have. The land owner asked me if i can kill some. I said i was just going to ask the same thing. Ive only seen one color phase yote in my time in the woods then in one day i saw 8 more. Crazy

Nope took the old smooth bore for a ride. I thinks it's more accurate then the 870. Well on the run anyway

From: Native

For yotes on private its ok...or if someone comes into my house looking for a discount on some lead at night!!!

From: Native

I did not know I could use it for yotes. .

From: tobywon

You cant use it during private land firearms deer season.

From: SWK
05-Dec-17
U can use it during private land firearms yote season witch never closes.

From: SWK

Solve that riddle... toby's right thought better safe than sorry... Try proving ur not deer hunting to wardens.

From: tobywon

"Try proving ur not deer hunting to wardens".....nothing to prove if deer gun season is open it doesn't matter even if you are strictly hunting coyote...pretty cut and dry on that :)

00 Buck is legal in a lot of States.

From: SWK
05-Dec-17
The possession of shotgun ammunition larger or heavier than #2 shot is prohibited on state-owned lands, state-leased lands, and Permit-Required Hunting Areas, at all times, and is prohibited on private lands during the Private Land Shotgun/Rifle Deer Season. Thanks toby see it now... So u can use it tomorrow.

Congrats on the coyotes. Good shooting.

Lead Number 2 shot is impossible to find. I looked this past winter.

I’m not talking steel number 2 shot for waterfowl.

can you hunt yotes with a slug gun on state land after deer season is closed? I want to hunt some with my caller and deciding on what ammo

From: Steve7
06-Dec-17
The only time of the year slugs are legal on state land is firearms deer season. Other than that is #2 and smaller

From: jax2009r

this state has some dumb laws man

From: tobywon

Very limited on state land with what you can use for coyote. I was able to take one on state land with my .17HMR last year. Its an accurate and potent little round, but it wouldn't be my first choice for coyote.

Just found Hevi-Shot #2 Tungston...$36.00 for a box of 25.

You will need a Heavy-Shot choke tube...$36.00

For those that want to hunt coyotes on state land.

Has any one used the black cloud coyote rounds?

From: Buckiller

3 shots in the chest area from a 22LR should kill any yote (eventually). I hate to see an animal suffer but there is no animal alive that will make a deer suffer like a yote. I'd rather see the yote suffer a bit than a deer at the mercy of a pack of yotes.

From: Native

hey buck . 22lr to the ear area will dump them in the tracks , shot many in upstate that way .

From: SWK
07-Dec-17
I f I were to hunt state I would use a 22 Mag with Hollow points the 17 HMR is a cute little round but ur shots in the woods will only be 60 yards max. Harder hitting & better expansion. Very popular round for jacking deer!

From: Steve7
07-Dec-17
A .22 stinger or velocitor round to the head or chest works fine. Or a .17 wmr is even better. I watched my brother drop a few with that wmr and its pretty impressive little round

From: tobywon
07-Dec-17
I agree SWK, the DEEP just removed the "lr" requirement for .22 I believe last year or the year before. Prior to that a .22 Mag could not be used. The .17hmr is a devastating little round with the CCI game points (not the polymer tip) and you would be surprised with the range. I agree the .17 wmr is impressive Steve7.
