Anybody has coyote problems ?

14 posts in this topic

Everytime I talk to some landowner about hunting coyotes they all mention to come to their place, they have many.

If anybody has any problem with 'yotes and wants hunters to try to get rid of them, let us know.

All we ask is permission to hunt your land, with or without callers, sometimes at night, and a little "insight" where you had sightings, damage or just heard of them.

None of us will hunt anything else (what else can you hunt with an AR-15) and bother any hunting party.

I, personally, will be starting my season right after deer-gun has been started or closed.

You can come and shoot all the yotes you want Valv.We have a ton of them.Only problem is you will have to drive to North Dakota to shoot em up.This winter is the first time in 15 years that we are going to go have a coyote shoot.

We had a couple floating around the field last Sunday when we finished up on the corn. I know of a group from the Owatanna area come through in early January and bagged a couple . Your more than welcome to hunt my land and I know the neighbors wouldn't mind too.

if ur from Lonsdale, u won't have to go to far. i have relatives that live on Shields Lake i know they talk about hearing coyotes down there all the time. upsets them because they like to eat the pheasants. i would have to get back to ya on where exactly they are but i know they said they hear them quite often in and around the public hunting grounds on the west end of Shields lake right by the small bridge.

Fish Boogers, that's where I live, I am waiting until deer season is over so I don't bother other hunters, then I'll start a good "campaign"

That's right we are like "bounty hunters", have guns we'll travel !!! laugh.gif

Val, your using a plural "Guns", does that mean later this winter I need to carry more than one as we run around chasing song dogs? cool.gifcool.gifcool.gif

Haven't forgot about ya, and I am still trying to get to the bottom of the wireless caller question. The Local CO said they were legal for coyotes.....Check out my posting on that other site.........

Tom, I am reading the "saga" of the wireless callers. I haven't done much with coyotes yet until a little later in season.

Hello guys. I live in Le Sueur and see/hear quite a few of the song dogs myself. I do have access to some land to hunt them. And as with most property owners, they're more than happy to have people shoot them.

Some relatives had a group of 5 walk just out of range while turkey hunting last spring.

It would be nice to have this caller issue resolved. I too have been monitoring that "other site" as well.:)

Thought I would bump this up to the top. Last night around 10:00 I had a couple doggies go strolling through the yard. I've been hearing them regularly between 7 and 10 at night quite near the farm, but can't get a good look at them.

I tried by henderson today. Lots of tracks but nothing responded to our calling. Brian, Ryan and I would be happy to rid you of your coyotes.

      It's Thursday, March 23rd, and we're still running four wheelers on many of the lakes north of Brainerd. The panfish action was hot last weekend, especially up in the shallow spikes close to deep water. The small cold-snap that hit early in the week seemed to slow the bite and push some fish out on the breaks that lead to shallow spikes. It's a special time of year. I watched my brother release multiple slabs over 14", multiple walleyes over 20", and some nice bass, all while fishing in 5 ft of water. It doesn't happen to us often, but it last weekend it was hard to find the eater-size crappies. Almost every fish was over 13". Good times.    How's everyone else doing out there?  Any new suggestions on panfish presentations, jigs, plastics..etc?   Good luck to all that get out on the last ice, and be safe!

      Welcome to Minnesota. I moved to the metro from way up north about 20 years ago so faced some of the same questions. Once I scouted a bunch of local WMA's I found several that didn't get much bow hunting pressure. Most days you're by yourself. But you have to be prepared for the unexpected. Once I was in a tree stand near some water. Right after sunrise I heard some shooting and shouting and a minute later a nice looking black lab ran past my stand with a mallard in his mouth! I didn't even know they were sitting in a blind down the shore from me. All in all I have had pretty good luck at finding places to hunt especially if you can go during the week.

      Following the pattern observed in neighboring states, white-nose syndrome, a disease that can be fatal to hibernating bats, has now been confirmed in six Minnesota counties, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  The disease has recently been confirmed in Becker, Dakota, Fillmore, Goodhue and Washington counties. Minnesota’s first confirmed case of WNS was in St. Louis County last March. The disease is named for the white fungal growth observed on infected bats. It is not known to pose a threat to humans, pets, livestock or other wildlife. The recent DNR bat surveys have recorded declines in the annual bat count ranging from 31 to 73 percent in locations where WNS has been confirmed. The 73 percent decrease was observed at Soudan Underground Mine in St. Louis County, where the disease was first confirmed in Minnesota a year ago. DNR biologists think the sharp decline there may reflect how long the disease has been present. With WNS confirmed in Fillmore County in southeastern Minnesota, the count at Brightsdale Tunnel was down 39 percent from last year, and the count at Bat River Cave decreased 31 percent. “While some locations are still testing negative, the results of recent surveys lead us to conclude that WNS is likely to be present anywhere bats hibernate in Minnesota,” said Ed Quinn, DNR natural resource program supervisor. “Four of Minnesota’s bat species hibernate, and four species migrate. WNS will have a substantial effect on Minnesota’s hibernating bat population. Neighboring states have reported declines of 70 to 95 percent in specific locations, as we recorded this year at Soudan Mine.” Although the disease is transmitted primarily from bat to bat, people can inadvertently carry fungal spores to other caves on clothing and caving gear. For several years, public tours of Soudan Underground Mine and Mystery Cave have begun with a brief lesson on how to prevent the spread of WNS. Both before and after tours, visitors are required to walk across special mats designed to remove spores from footwear, and they are advised not to wear the same clothing, footwear or gear when visiting other caves or mines where bats may be present. Multiple washings in a standard washing machine will not provide sufficient decontamination. Tours will continue at Soudan Underground Mine and Mystery Cave, where the DNR will continue to follow recommended national decontamination protocols to prevent human transport of fungal spores. The DNR urges owners of private caves to learn about WNS and take similar visitor precautions as outlined in the protocols. The DNR is working with federal and state officials to consider a variety of treatment trials, to test new fungicides that may kill WNS spores. Treatments are unlikely to eradicate WNS, but could slow the spread and reduce the number of bat deaths. DNR biologists conduct winter bat counts in several Minnesota hibernacula each year. “We use these counts to compare the number of bats in a site from year to year. Although we count all of the bats that we see, more are likely in areas we can’t reach,” said DNR mammalogist Gerda Nordquist. WNS was first documented in North America in 2007 in eastern New York and has since spread to 30 states and five Canadian provinces, killing more than 5.7 million bats. Nordquist encourages anyone who sees a sick or dead bat to submit a Bat Observation Report. DNR staff reviews these reports and additional follow-up or testing is conducted as needed.

            Can't fix stupid! That crack, now forming a pressure ridge, about mid-lake, is plenty reason not to drive even a car out there. Won't take much to break that lake apart soon the way it was chuckin ice, especially rain. Some areas had 12". Hopefully the heavy rain stays away.
