I had to(got to) dipatch one Monday that had been hit by a car or something and was hiding on the back of my property. That night I had 5 or 6 of them howling in the back yard at 3:45am.

The pups are very active and learning their voices now. They have been extremely active and annoying. There is a litter near my house and they need to go. Just came back from a walk and learned where they are playing and what they are eating, eating lots of plums from the fenceline, corn and looks to be mice. They are aparently used to gunshots from living so close and that does not deter them from howling every night. maybe the scent from my walk will keep em quiet tonight. I'm thinking snares, bombs, or anything that will shut them up!

Not much chance on seeing them with the corn 8 feet tall around their play area. The spotlight hasn't revealed any of their eyes. Kinda disheartening after feeding the pheasants last winter to not even hear one crow. I think they took care of the hens as well, none along my road in the wet mornings! We definitely need some intense predator control around here!

Well if Randy is going to help with situation, I would like to say anyone west and southwest of the Cities can send me an email to help with the removal of any coyotes. grin.gif I broke down and bought a new Electronic caller (Minaska M1 bandit)and am looking to get some blood on it.

My calling partners (3 of them) and I are all teachers, so weekday trips are out of the question, although evenings are a possibility. We don't want deer/pheasant/turkey/duck hunting permission. Just coyote and fox. We are not trappers, nor do we run the coyotes with dogs, just hand calls and electronic calls. I would say we are discrete, but I am way to big to be called discrete.

Randy, I know that everything is huntable from town to stowe lake, the residents are all annoyed by the coyotes. Once the crops are out, it will limit their cover. there is a den 300 yards N of my house, as well as in the abandoned farmsite half mile N. Any time you want to set up a hunt, let me know and I'll arrange access to all the land I can, Pretty much unlimited for coyotes. I'm kinda looking forward to getting back into night calling in the winter. Been a while since I did it seriously. Brent

        when dont you look odd? ? ?    got ya

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
