I've never hunting coyotes with a shotgun but I hear a lot of people use BB. Really its whatever patterns in your gun the best though.

From what I have seen in the varmint postings most people use a small caliber rifle as coyotes are pretty wary and the shots can be long.Maybe you should check out some of those posts.

I used 00 buckshot the only time I went coyote hunting, and it worked like a charm. I took one at about 45 yards. It only ran about 10 yards, then dropped. Just make sure you don't overshoot the buckshot, keep it close range, and try some in your shotgun. I use a full choke, but some people use modified, it all depends on your gun. If your gun will handle it, Federal make a copper plated buckshot that is just evil, but you have to see if you can pattern it well out of your setup. Good luck, and let us know how it went.

I don't think I can use a rifle in the area I want to hunt. Otherwise I would use one.

.22 maybe allowed for coyotes even if any rifles are generally prohibited for hunting. Give DNR a call and ask directly. Keep the record of who you talked to, when and what did he say (emails are best sometimes).
