Looking to hunt some coyote late spring summer called DNR told me to have habit stamp. Check. Told me I can only use a shotgun. Check got one. Told me I can only use AAA shot. What is triple A shot? What do other people use. I am fairly new to hunting and want to make sure I'm doing everything correctly. Can anyone help.

What tree did this guy crawl out from under. The old AAA is .20 diameter the same size as today's steel T shot which would be useless on a coyote. i don't remember the last time I had AAA shot maybe 25 years ago

I don't know if you can even still buy AAA in lead

 Me I like no.4 buck in lead but that is .24 diameter

I never hunted coyotes here after march but someone will know if No.4 buck is allowed now.

Worse case one may find some BB lead which again is better than T steel

Cheers

Quick answer - coyote hunting, this time of year using a shotgun - any size shot. Complying with all other hunting regs of course.

You can find the answer, (re shotgun shot size) in the NS Firearm & Bow Regs (google search) and the summary (NS DNR website).

The law simply says "a shotgun loaded with shot".  The law is more specific about migratory birds, and big game and what size shot is in the shotgun for those.

I have seen a couple summer yotes out by the airport, one was just a pup and got pretty close to it before it took off, didn't have a gun with me on either occasion.

I remember watching bambi for the first time when I was little and my favourite part
was when they killed bambi's mother because I knew somwhere the hunters
family was eating good that night never understood why they made him out to be the
bad guy.

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but We are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.
