Shot sizes

I need some help here. Can someone please explain how the shot size for shotguns goes? I want to start hunting coyotes and the book says nothing bigger than 4. Guy at locale shop told me that I can use anything except slugs. Thanks

Bob

Re: Shot sizes

If I'm not mistaken the largest size shot you can use for yotes is #4 Buck.

Re: Shot sizes

You cannot use buckshot larger than #4.

Re: Shot sizes

That's what the book says. I just don't know what is too big to use. Shot size is backwards right? That means I cant use 00 buck? Or 000

Re: Shot sizes

That's right. #4 would be the only size of buckshot that's legal.
