coyotes in the wind?

5 posts in this topic

hey everyone!

Went a little west today (2-16-08) by the tracy, mn area in serch of yotes. Talked with a couple people that have seen coyotes on a regular basis in areas. we tried calling (all types) and pushing smaller draws/valleys with trees, cattails, crp grass,and creek bottoms. There was a south wind at about 25 to 30 mph. (Wind was always in our face while hunting). seen tons of tracks, and [PoorWordUsage] at every spot we hunted (all private). Do yotes hide in the deepest, thickest cover they can find and not move all day when the wind is bad? Does anyone have any advise on this? Or answers?

answers? can't help you there, but I would think the coyotes would like to get out of the wind, like everything else. They could have been denned up, or not on the property at that time. I am heading out tomorrow (monday) hoping the sudden cold snap tomorrow morning brings out the hunger instinct

if your going to push cover like a deer drive, put your posters down wind and your drivers walk with the wind. the yotes or fox will try to sneak out at a little slower pace than if you get right on top of them and bust em out at a dead run.

and with the warmer temps they could very likely just been laying out on the fence lines or rockpiles too...good luck getting on them they will frustrate you more than any other species i.m.o.

frustration? ya i know all about that this year. it was only me and a buddy makin a push. we did it the same as we did phesant hunting except when we were phesant hunting the coyotes came runnin out, and now that we are hunting for them they won't show themselves. gonna try it out there again when it's not windy, and do more callin'.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
