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!

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds

          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.
