Walleyes - great point, I'm guilty of not patterning my gun. How does the dead coyote choke compare to a modified? Whats the constriction?

I'm not looking for a really tight pattern as I use the shotgun when hunting with hounds and if its thick and I have the scattergun its gonna be close and probably moving fast - or way too far away and I wish I had the rifle!

I'm using a dead coyote tube on mine with no.4 buck. I believe the constriction is .660 if memory serves. I'll pull it out of the safe tomorrow and check it. If it's different, I'll post back with the correct figure.

If your work is in close, the dead coyote tube may not be what you're looking for. In my Rem 1100, it holds quite tight out to 50 yards. May need to give the dead coyote loads a try in a smaller size. In close, that tube/load combo may open up the yodel dog pretty good. How good are you with a needle and thread?

There was a good article in Field and Stream or Outdoorlife about a month back on this issue. The article went over lots of loads and choke sizes. If you can find it...read it. I will look tonight to see which one.

Yep Good Post! I have shot coyotes as far as 60 yards and as close as 5 yards with it. My gun loves that combination.

    • I'm looking for suggestions on a dog blind for duck hunting. My son wants to train his lab pup to stay in a blind in the duck boat anybody have any suggestions on brand or what to look for.  
    •   Gee whiz, it took me 2 seconds to google it. Looks like it was The Hill.
    • Sure puts the Ion to shame.... 
    •     You're ok with the status quo, too, but you have never provided any rational explanation as to why.      
    • I am flying from Phoenix to Omaha tomorrow evening.  I do not remember the last time i drove in snow.  hopefully it will be plowed by the time i get in at 730pm.  
    • What's wrong with letting adults decide what they do with themselves and letting states make the calls when necessary?    As to your second paragraph, does oxycontin get treated like ibuprofen? Are all legal drugs treated the same or are there standards used for certain types of legalized drugs?    At the core I don't like the feds involved in regulating drugs,guns,tobacco etc but if I have to choose between making them illegal,which sends them underground where there is no consistency, no standards, no way if the consumer being able to know what they are buying and legalizing them where at least they are subject to some measures of consistency in manufacturing then I would grudgingly take the latter.    You always seem to get hung up on this all or nothing kick when there are other options that can be used.     
    • Well I went to the dealership to order my vinyl and lucky I did, one of the salesman told me the precut wood I had ordered is sized for carpet and not vinyl. If I use the vinyl I'd have a quarter inch gap or so in between the pieces...So now I'm gonna go with carpet which sucks since I had my heart set on vinyl...oh well
    • By the time the wedder morjits are done hyping it down here, it'll be the storm of the century, with thousands stranded and the National Guard dropping supplies from C-130's., pulled down the runway by herds of reindeer. 
    • I was up last weekend.  It was my 3rd trip of the year.  I canceled my rooms for my March trip.  Call the Hamilton House...2 rooms just opened up for the 8-11th of March.     There's a ton of Walleyes in LW, but debatable how many big ones.  Big fish seem to be in decline.  Pick any reason you want, but it's a fact.  The big fish are nowhere near as prevalent.  That doesn't mean you won't catch one...or multiple...but you're going to have to work.  If you're not in the fish, move.  If you find fish, but not bigger ones...move.   I'm a mover...I'll move 5 times in a day easy.  I know guys who will wait it out all day and they might be the guys who catch some big fish, but they're usually the guys who only catch a few eaters and nothing big.  just my opinion.  Good luck and above all, don't let all the fisherman completely devoid of courtesy be justification to abandon yours.  
    • hahaha just watched the 6 o'clock news, doesn't sound like anything north of the twin cities is going to get anything.
