Has any one ever had a coyote steal their dead geese from the decoys?

9 posts in this topic

Last weekend I was hunting a 40 acre oat field with some friends south of harding, when all of a sudden a coyote came out of the woods and snatched up one of are dead geese. It scared the sh*t out of me...must have came within 10 feet of us....(Contact Us Please) those eliminator blinds must work becuase I don't think he even knew we were there? Has anyone else had that happen to them? Should I have put some F-shot into him?

This must be rhetorical question because the answer is so obviously yes it isn't worth answering. Although it does make we wonder...who in the world shoots F-shot anymore???

You are wondering if you should have shot a coyote at 10 yds? I would have dump a few rounds in the thing.

They still make F shot???? LOL

Never a yote, but in Alaska a few years back the Bald Eagles were taking our dead ducks right out of the decoys. I wasn't about to shoot at one of those though grin.gif I would definately drop the yote in a new york minute. F shot, T shot, even BB will bring them down.

I don't think I could have resisted popping him if he didn't even touch any birds.

We had a hawk dive down and eat the head off a crippled mallard two years ago.

Had a yote sneak up on bigfoot dekes last yr. My lab saw it and wanted to go after it. As she started to break i nicked her with the collar in which she yelped. When the yote heard that he came on a dead run towards me. Must of thought she was another yote or something. I layed down behing a deke and dumped him with BBB when he got within 35 yards. (actually he ran down to a slough about 100yds away and died) 2nd time i had a yote sneak up on goose dekes.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
