    50 yards w #2 bismuth ( 4 shots ) and the chase was on. Loading on the run, jumping hot wires and shooting. Got him down before he exited to neighbors property.

    Buddy laughed.

    I didnt drop a shell or bobble a load either.

    But my hat did come off about 50 yards from the end point.

    Depends on range.
    I've killed canines bigger than a coyote at 25 yards with #6's.

    Likewise, no worries. Similar circumstances have had other outcomes previously.

    Most of the time I don't wear muffs when hunting but got in the habit of making PigHuntress wear them on the rare occasions she's hunting beside me.

    I edited my original post after some thought to the sensitive nature of my two children. Both are grown but would be totally shocked if they witnessed how ruthless I can be to coyotes, pigs, and other pests. You made the right call.

    Good input guys. This was just one of those things that had a couple different angles I thought would be interesting to throw out there.

    Probably my biggest hesitation initially was not wanting to freak out my daughter. She seems to enjoy this stuff but is naturally a bit softer than my son, not that he’s cold blooded by any means. Last thing I wanted was a squealing yote flip-flopping in front of her from a less than ideal shot. So far she’s been ok with killing but she was a bit upset about stinging that turkey last year.

    I still can’t figure out what the fool thing was thinking. I’ve had coyotes haul out that barely caught me drawing my bow on them. Curiously almost killed the dog.

    First, I would have had electronic muffs on the young-in since the shotgun has a ported barrel.

    Second, I wouldn't have shot when they bunched at 20 yards. Perhaps it would have only wounded them but might have eventually killed them from infection. I'd probably not been that ruthless in front of my daughter.

    Third, crap happens with safeties being forgotten. But out of habit, I probably would have already had the safety off even though not taking the 20 yard shot. Definitely would have busted the yote in the face at close range rather than chasing it off.

    The lesson taught to my kid would have been some game laws are just plain stupid and the greater harm would be the invasive predator getting away. The second lesson would be to learn to keep some secrets and not tell friends about Daddy shooting something illegally.

    Fitch, you are a good man so please don't take my comments the wrong way. I'm not judging your decisions. Just telling what I would have done. My moral compass was broken a long time ago when it comes to some game laws.

    On another note, you'd been looking at rabies shots if that coyote had bitten one of you. Shooting it at close range probably would have killed it outright but there was a chance it would have attacked if wounded.

    Nice pics Fitch, good work !

    By the way, shovels were invented for a reason !
    That's what we call a "3S" bhr!
    1) shoot
    2) shovel
    3) shut up
    LOL!
    Especially pertaining to bothersome neighborhood pets!

    I would have emptied the gun trying to kill them both. No hesitation, no remorse.

    I've toppled more than one 'yote stalking my deke!
    We don't have "seasons" on them down here.
    I'd have fed him a face full of whatever you were shooting. At that range, he/she would have been toast!

    ...and forgetting the safety on occasion isn't unique to you.

    p.s. - I dislike killing a female anything with a belly full of little ones, except 'yotes, feral hogs and armadillos.
