Just thought I would write the group here for the trapping section.

I have never trapped anything or shot yotes- but would like to learn. If anyone has the time to take a newbie out - just to follow I would be greatful.

I live in Newport, but could drive anyplace for a time in the woods.

Teal look into joining the MTA. Attend a meeting and ask for some "on the line training". I am sure there are MORE than a few guys who will be willing to help you out. If you can't find anyone, let me know I will try my connections down there for you.

It's going to be a while yet. I want to get a layer of snow on the ground. It makes them easier to spot and the dogs get a much better whiff of them.

Sorry, dont want to steal your thread, but didnt want to start another topic on the same subject, and the answers may help us both!

I want to get in to yote hunting this year also, and have a few questions. I have a gun some calls, and land to hunt, lots of yelping in the evenings around where I am hunting. Just the basics.

How would you start, sitting? calling? shining? Any tips ? Hunt open areas, wooded, ravines? Mornings, days, evenings, nights?

I'm really not the expert on this topic. When we go yote hunting we use dogs. My friend has "sniffer, chaser, and kill" dogs.

Sometimes we can hear them yelping in the evenings and we will go find them.

As far as calling, I have to let someone else answer that one.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
