Anybody south of the Metro has coyote problems ?

9 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 south of the Metro Area 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.

Valv....isn't an AR-15 a .223 centerfire? Correct me if I'm wrong, which I'am about 50% of the time....which classifies me as a trouble maker grin.gif but I thought that centerfire rounds, other then shotgun shells couldn't be used south of a line that starts up near Cambridge? North zone and south zone?

That rule doesn't apply to varmit hunting. I believe big game only.

Soooo, in essence it would be safe to say that one could hunt varmits in southern Minn. with and ought 6, or a 7mm?

I know they don't do that...I'm just pretty well caught up on my work and I don't have anything to do today except a little needle work! grin.gif

You can also drive nails with a jackhammer, but why would you? Just because it's legal dosen't mean that everyone does it that way.

John, did you make it home allright with the trailer ?

Anyway I believe you can hunt them with anything you want, if you meed the fur you will be careful about shot placement and caliber.

Coyote/varmint hunters not only use AR-15, most popular are 22-250, 204, 243, and the 17hmr.

I had a 25-06 once and loved it.

I was sighting my gun at the range my "bench neighbor" was sighting a .338 super mag. he was going mule deer hunting in Wyoming, I thought it was a little eccessive.... shocked.gif

Val, the trailer and I made it home just fine. It was pleasure doing business with you and thanks for the tip on the recipe, but I forgot how much heavy cream you used. Was it a quart (4 cups)?

When I lived in North Dakota my hunting buddy used to shoot a .338 for whitetails and I used a 300 Winn Mag. Yes, at under 200 yards they where very excessive but for those "reach out and touch them" shots that you get on the plains they are very tough to beat.

John, it was a pleasure to finally meet you.

Anyway you need 1/2 quart of heavy cream or Half & Half.

Thanks, I'm going to make it sometime this week. My favorite dish and I haven't been able to have a good serving since I left Sicily, and that was about 15 years ago!

      Cool nights and only a few warming hours each day have water temps coming down into the 50s this week.  This is actually pretty normal for the last week of September so there is nothing to odd here. 
       
      The catfish have slowed down over the past few days with this cool off.  They are still around to catch.  They are hanging near structure, usually on the drop off to the channel right next to it.  They are also on the softer side of the current in holes.  It seems that longer sit times are in order this week to allow the fish to come out, find and decide to eat the bait.
       

      Sucker seems to be the bait of choice right now.  Frogs just have not been getting any attention.

      From the fall Pelican Lakes Association newsletter - DNR Fisheries Update:

      You may have heard about the 454 adult cormorantsthat were removed from Gooseberrry Island this May by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Unit under a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  DNR staff looked at the stomach contents of 30 birds. Eleven of those birds had stomach contents including: 38 perch (mostly 4- inchers), 7 spot-tail shiners, 7 bluegills, 6 crappies, 1 rock bass, 1 pike, and zero walleyes.

      Thanks for the Update.  Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :):)

      They were really slow today. I fished hard all day and didn't manage much. Went over tons of fish and they weren't active at all. Should get better as the weekend gets closer...I hope

    • Hello Friends:

      Looking for some help as I've been up here since yesterday morning and only two 22" walleyes. I've fished fairly hard (5 or 6 hours) and tried all of my normal spots in Frazer/Smarts/Narrows area using all presentations with minnows and crawlers. Would love to have a walleye dinner (couple of 15's) for my black lab and I tomorrow night and any suggestions would be welcomed.

      I'm not looking for spots, but general depth and bait.

      Thanks guys

      Andy

      It is great.  I don't know if they are still doing grumpy gary chicken this time of year but it is good.  They have specials on various nights, at least in summer.

      Dennis Anderson, Outdoor writer for the Minneapolis Tribune had a nice write up on the duck opener at Pelican. In addition there were some locals quoted on duck hunting there. Sounds like the ducks are back, and they have the water levels well under control.
