Public land for coyotes

5 posts in this topic

I know this looks like it should be in the hunting forum but follow me here: the last couple years we have gone to a buddies parents cabin on Lake Wabedo and spend a couple days trying to call in coyotes on the local public lands. We have not had much sucess, but have seen a lot of sign, along with T-wolf sign as well. I am not completely familiar with all of the state and county land up there, but I can read a map. Does anyone have suggestions for us? We are all teachers and generally come up during the MEA break in middle of October.

Thanks in advance for any help. I think this year we are gonna start knocking on the doors of some of the beef farms up there.

102 visits and no help??? come on fella's we are responsible, if we see a truck parked at an entry and don't see gun cases, we assume bow hunting and we leave the area immediately. Does someone have ideas for areas around wabedo for coyote hunting???? Does anyone have private land with coyotes on it that want them thinned out? we use electronic callers, and spend at most 1 hour in an area.

You may want to contact the Chippewa National Forest Service in Walker for some advice. 218-547-1044.

Good hunting.

Have you hunted south and east of Wabedo? If not, follow the old railroad grade south to get in some back country. We have hunted deer on and off for the last 30 years south and west of Wabedo - used to see alot of coyote sign, but timber wolves are very firmly entrenched throughout the area. We started seeing them back in the early 90's, and I'm sure they love all the deer that are around. Don't forget Timber wolves will prey on coyotes - they're bigger, faster, and stronger, and will kill and eat these competitors.

Tough part to me would be to find country where you can see for a fair distance. Tree stands might not be the best way, but would surely give you a better view - sometimes two hunters, sitting back to back can be very effective in the woods.

In any case, there's alot of food in the woods around those parts - and these critters are pretty smart. Can't believe theres much hunting pressure for them, but you never know about them country boys...

Thanks guys, we have hunted south and east of wabedo, there is a grouse hunters area that we have tried the last couple of years, but we will find the railroad grade....last year went west of Pine river into the pine mountain state park (I think that was the name, anyway, we ran into too many ATV's and Grouse hunters, in fact we picked one up and drove him back to his car, about 15 miles by road. WE have called up a t-wolf before, that was errie, we could hear it walking back and forth 50 yards into the woods for about 10 minutes. A little un nerving

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
