Good advice has been given. One thing I might suggest is the use of Heavy Coyote loads or #4 buck. Ditch the 00 buck. Too few pellets and you probably only hit that coyote with 1-2 pellets at most.

Yup but at 70yds with a shottie even with the specialized loads I'd only try it with a perfectly matched choke for that distance, maybe an optic as well...still rather have a rifle in that situation though....; )

Yeah, I'd never try a shot at 70 yards with the shotgun. If a coyote is 45 yards or so away, it is safe unless I have a rifle. (even at that, it may still be safe :) )

I know people have shot yotes 70yds plus, with special chokes and good loads. However, I think if your going to push pellets past 50yds, maybe you should not only test pattern, but also test penetration. It only takes one pellet to kill, but is it consistent in every shot. I would take my 22 first.

Dead cow update.
 
UPDATE !! Strong north west winds today & perfect for the deer stand setup near the dead cow. got there at 3.00 & used the coyote vocals sparingly then 15 minutes of silence. went with a coyote /fox fight & one committed. popped him & he was down but struggling, left him & went to pup distress 3 & another came out right past the downed one. pow ! she took off !! waited about 15 minutes to see if any more would come. I found the second one about 50 yards away. the first one dragged itself off & i couldn't find it but he's toast. and yes as you can see i brought a rifle to the fight this time !!! well i cant get the photo attached , it says the file size is to large. Dang it !

if someone want to help me with posting the pic i can e-mail it or text it.

Guys! go to Imgur.com website and establish an account. Upload your pictures to their site, then select the picture you want to post(it will enlarge), select large thumbnail size(down near the bottom on the right), then select Forums and messages boards , hit the copy button out to the side of that selection. Then go to the remarks section of FoxPro, right click and paste, it will be there after you comment and submit.
