swpa87 said:Haha yea I agree with the brush thing but, I have killed 3 coyotes very easily with steel bb shot. my wingmaster throws that stuff very well. But all of them were in tge open on a logging roads. I think it just wasnt heavy enough to puch through thicked twigs. The remington no 4 in 2-34 isnt very goof from my gun. I shot at a standing coyote last year from 30y head on and missed! im gonna pickup some hornady number 4 and see how that works.
If you actually read my whole post, you might have seen where I said I'd never use it for coyotes. Where I said it works fine within its limitations, was in response to cm's post that it was in humane, and wouldn't kill waterfowl. Like I said, stick to it's limitations. And if that's all I had, I'd hunt coyotes with it, and only shoot them in the face, 20 yards and under. if you look up the other post, I believe I was the first one in that post to say that steel was garbage or coyotes. Seeing as how I saw a yote get crushed at 40 yards with hevi 7s going a tad over 1000 fps, I'm certain that steel bb going 1500 or so fps at 20 yards will do just fine. Have you shot any coyotes with it to prove it doesn't work, or are you just going off what you read?dtpa said:So your advice that it works fine is only what you've read, or have you killed some with it too? I've seen way too many geese take direct hits and just fly away, to risk losing a coyote. Watched 2 different guys shoot turkeys with the stuff, too. Truthfully if I had to choose I would shoot low brass 6's before steel shot. Not that I'm recommending that, but this is how much I disdain steel shot.
