It will work just fine to 40yds. I shot one last year with a load of 1.25oz. of #4and it rolled him for keeps. onless they'er rate on top of you the fur will still be fine to. good luck.

i'm about to be going to my girlfriends dads house for some yote poping. We're taking the shotgun just incase. Maybe I'll test the theory. What you all figure to be the best load for strictly yotes?

I'd say #5 would be alright, but #4 would be more ideal. Also make sure you have an extra tight choke. Aim for the shoulder, you want the spread to make a circle from the head to the vitals, if you aim for the head half your circle could miss.
