Can I create a custom Field with only Yes and No value? (I do not want to see "None" as a value)

I like to have a field with only two values "yes" and "no" where default is set to "no" and user can only select one value and user can not select any other value.

I tried this with Select List custom field. Problem is I also now have None as one of the values.

THere is None, Yes and No. How can I get rid of "None"?

THank you for your help in advance.

Set the field as mandatory, and none will disappear. None means "no answer" which is not the same as either yes or no, but you always need an answer

None does not disapear from the field values but it can not be selected. Basically it solve the problem for me but it is a bad user experience as they will select None and see an error. Thanks Nic.

I think it disappears if you select a default value of "yes" or "no".
