Default Gun for Coyote hunting.

What would be a good gun for this animal. I was thinking a 270 or 12 gauge with a buck shot?

Both would be fine choices. I deer hunt with a 270 so a few months before deer season I get some real pratice in.

The wood around here is thick so I'm leaning towards the 12 gauge.

If I was you,I would pattern my gun with 00 buckshot,just to see which one patterns best with my shotgun.It may do better with a different shot size.Try 000,00or #1 Buckshot.

Good luck to you!

Default shotgun

the shotgun will work real good in the woods I predator hunt a lot so if you get a good call hand or electronic you could get away with the shotgun every time I got a 20ga and thats all its for is coyotes
