Default How many #4 buck does it take?

I've been patterning my new Coyote shotgun at various ranges. I am using a Dead Coyote choke tube. I know placemant is important, but roughly how many #4 buckshot pellets do you need to get into a coyote to put it down?

Thanks

coyotes are tough, one will kill them if its in the right place but they can cover 1/2 mile in roughly 30 seconds and will be diffacult to find.

As RR said, they are tough and can take a beating and keep kickn for some quite distance. I have dropped them with 1 pellet in the head and then on the next shot, knock them off their feet with 10-12 pellets, take off for 50yds then roll over. Just depends on each animal. I shoot the Hornady and Dead Coyote with a Briley Imp. Mod ported tube. I try to keep my shots inside 50yds.

We use full and extra full tubes and try to keep shots 50yards max. Like said one pellet in the right spot will do the trick but you can't count on getting that one lucky pellet in'em.
Keep distance close and let any shot that isn't going in a major kill zone walk.
