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

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
