Hello all!
I want to hunt Coyotes with a shotgun. Prefer 20 gauge but looks like 12 gauge might have to do due to availability. What would be your suggestion for a factory TSS load. I want at least 7 shot. I would welcome advice on 28 gauge loads also.
Thanks,
Rick

I prefer larger shot for coyotes, #4 buck or copper plated BB.

Thank you! I have both but haven’t tried either. I hear and read such good things about TSS I thought maybe I would give it a try. Not sure how 7’s would do though.
Any suggestions on TSS?
Thanks,
Rick

TSS #2 - #4 is fantastic on coyotes.

I shot a coyote last year with a 2 oz load of heavyweight #7 out of my 10 gauge. Range was 30 yards and shot was in chest area. Went straight down and never flinched.

#4 to BB is what I prefer in anything but steel when using a shotgun for coyotes. I lean towards the larger end of the spectrum as it means fewer holes to stitch up as most of my use of a shotgun is when the pelts are worth something.
