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!

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.

      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.

      Stopped in this morning and it looks like it should be good to go.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...
