bea,

You've got it. Just run a choke tube in a deer barrel with sights. Makes lining it all in very easy.

Anyone who has actually hunted deer and/or turkey and denies the usefulness of a low powered scope is either Alvin York or doesn't know squat.


You're probably right, I guess I don't know squat about shotgunning predators.

having hunted coyotes for many years,ive used many different rifles and shotguns what works for you is the best set up for you. i have shot coyotes as close as 2 yrds and at 40yrds with a shotgun at 2yrds you point at 40 yrds you aim a little more as you point.any thing that helps you get on target faster will mean more dead coyotes, its easy to miss with a shotgun.no matter how you have it set up.

oldman "Anyone who has actually hunted deer and/or turkey and denies the usefulness of a low powered scope is either Alvin York or doesn't know squat."

Since this is the predator forum and the OP wanted it for his "fur" shotgun, that'd put you in the don't know squat category.

Sorry, missed that point. We usually shoot Yotes with rifles here (WY) although I did roll a running Yote back when I lived in NY with a deerslug in a smooth bore IC Model 12 carrying a Weaver K-1 with a 5 minute dot at about 35 yards.
(the outfit tells you it was ancient history)

"Sorry"? I think you owe that to MOGC.
