Montana Yotes

3 posts in this topic

Was just wondering if Tim the Minnesota hunter got a good price for your Yotes you got around Scobey MT. Glad to see somebody doing good the first trip up here. caj

CAJ,

Did we meet you out there? We sure did meet alot of nice people out there...actually enjoyed that about as much as the hunt itself. It's some beautiful country...beautiful ranches, and some very helpful/hospitable people out there.

This was our first serious predator hunt. Our aim was to try to get somewhere where there was good numbers of yotes, and less hunting pressure. We saw a fair number of dogs, and definitely learned alot. We also found there is a definite learning curve to this sport, and we should have taken a few more out.

The dogs we did shoot were not the greatest quality. One had mange, no tail, and probably wouldn't have made it through the winter. A couple more were rubbed pretty good. The nicest one I sniped with a 22-250, hit it in the spine/neck, and about took it's head off. We did shoot a pretty nice fox too. I left the furs with my hunting partners (OMG did they stink...the animals I mean). They had a connection with a trapper in their neighborhood, and were going to pass them off to him to see what he could do with them. I was just pretty much glad to be rid of them.

Overall, we had a great time. We'd like to come back, and probably will. Just wish it wasn't so far away!

Tim

Tim Yous should be here right now. It is -20 with a 25 mile an hour wind. Makes the Yotes slow up a little. HA HA. Still no snow. Couple freinds of mine shot 6 the day before yesterday. Was nice and just before the storm rolled in. They were on the move. One had the mange, and the rest were good. Hope to see you out here again. CAJ

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
