80yrd is a long stretch for a shotgun...perfect for a rifle though.Shotguns are lethal at close range like 40 yards and in...once you get past 40yd you'll start to get varying results. Could you of killed it?...maybe, but it probably would of ran off.
I have a question about the effective range of Hevi-Shot "Dead Coyote" shotshells. Last week my son and I called a coyote to within 80yrds. It stopped short, and stayed for about 3-5 minutes but would not commit. Since it was a shotgun only area, I had a Remington 870 12ga with 3" shells, and my son had a Benneli 12ga with 3 1/2" shells. We both thought we could probably hit the coyote, but not cleanly kill it. We never took the shot. (We are new to predator hunting, and this would have been our first success.) I have never patterend this shell at this range, and have no idea what effect it would have. It advertises that it is effective "beyond what you ever thought possible".Does anyone have any experience with this shell? Could we have killed it?

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
