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.

    • Whatever happened to reinhardt1?  He caught a lot of heat down here because he was so enthralled with Michelle Bachmann, but when he left Sillytown, he moved to the cooking thread, and he was very knowledgeable about cutting and preparing meat, since he was a butcher by trade.  I never spent much time in the cooking forum, but I would read reinhardt's posts occasionally.   I didn't mind Lmitout, but I've been frequenting these forums since the wild & wooly days - back when Jackpine Rob & the crew was on here.  Lmitout was pretty tame in comparison to some of those guys...          
    • Fun time at the river
    • There you go again, calling names.   "senile elders"  "brainwashed baby boomers"   "need the blue pill"     Are you serious dude?   And you wonder why folks don't take your alternative chiropractic talk seriously? 
    • some are still here, just not as busy posting.
    • The administration I referred to was not the Obama administration.  Don't edit me when quoting.  It was the HSO administration. 
    • Like I said I pop in from time to time , not like before. I do remember you rundrave stepping in and commenting on all the babble when the cooking thread crashed, you think that was the only babbling going on here? Hey, your a mod and we're just trying to cool things down, I get that.  In my opinion it came down to the cooking thread was dominating the rest and some didn't like it.  But if you want an answer on politics ,you don't have to look hard..
    • Rage, ok, thats funny. More so making light of rebels transparency regarding not being able to handle differing opinions and allowing his homeboys to throw out as much smack talk as me, only i come a little harder and sensative people struggle with their emotions.  Hence deleting a post with no rules breaking.     This whole post was a story, made up to start something. Nice troll work OP, i knew it a long time ago but played along cause it was fun but now its just a bunch of senile elders or brainwasher baby boomers that cant exchange without feeling like they were talked down to. So soft and zero passion for anything worthwhile, thats why you all need the blue pill.    
    •   Well shistter,  I had to WiKi the curry wurst so it looks like a real deal!   Currywurst (German pronunciation: [ˈkœʁiˌvʊʁst][1]) is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage (German: Bratwurst) typically cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste, itself topped with curry powder, or a ready-made ketchup seasoned with curry and other spices. The dish is often served with French fries.
