Went out hunting coyotes for the 1st time at my Dad's farm. I used a pup in distress call. I shot the 1st female after 35 minutes and then a large male 30 minutes later. I'm hooked now and will be going back next week!
Thanks Groovy Mike! I really wish these were the only two! Unfortunately not the situation. Dad has 15 to his name = 7, 5, and 3 from the first three years he has tried. Need to get rid of as many as possible to allow the whitetails to re-populate the area.
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
