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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
