What 12 gauge 2 3/4 or 3 inch load would you use for coyotes? I have a box of Rio's 12 gauge 2 3/4 3 3/4 dram 1-1/4 # 6 shot already what do think of this load for coyotes? Estimated range would be 10-20 yards. I was at my mother -in-laws house last week when a coyote walked through her yard, first time seeing a coyote there, She does live out in the woods , but here other houses around so was little surprised to see it may not see one again but would like to be prepared.
