I have same gun, you can use Coyote Loads or 00 Buckshots. They do work great up to 75 yards

I perfer Dead coyote, with the dead coyote choke tube! I found personally that an xtra full choke with 00 buck is too tight, and make my pattern go irratic! My best advice would be to pattern your shotgun with different loads and choke combinations! Then you will know for sure!

I picked up some 12 ga. 3&1/2 inch in #4buck. If a guy isn't into saving the hides, do you think this might make a good coyote load? or should I save it as a welcome gift for burglars?

I would stick to 4 buck or dead coyote. I would also recommend testing your gun with your chokes, i also wouldn't be shooting coyotes out to 75yds, maybe 50, but that would be about it. Not saying it can't be done, but not everytime. Unless you are night hunting and have to use a shotgun, i would use a rifle. That way you get them if they are 10feet or 100yds. I think if you are good with your rifle you can get doubles, triples without the shotgun. I got a double but missed the third, and that has been only chance. One more thing, i can't see the 00buck having a consistant pattern with there only 9-18 pellets depending on the length. Limit your shots and use something that will give you sure kills. If i could find 31/2 lead bb's thats what i would use, but til then i only have 35yd shots with my superfull choke and fed. high density 2+.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
