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!

      Welcome what are you training her for waterfowl upland or both? What is her name?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
