Coyote info needed

4 posts in this topic

Its a bit late but we are going coyote hunting and shed hunting on the 9th of March for a few days in North Dakota. The info I'am looking for is the best method to go hunting yotes this time of year. Thanks for the info.

I will be hunting a ranch with a couple sections that has meadows, river bottom and lots of woods. There is very little to no pressure on this land for hunting coyotes.

a good first step would be to ask my wife if I can go smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif.....actually at that point of the year, they should be getting pretty close mating, they are starting to pair up right now. So, work on a challenge howl if you have the places to practice, bring along your rabbit in distress calls too. bring along white and brown camo depending how much snow cover is there. Don't skyline yourself, but I would start above the river bottoms, but don't neglect the meadows either. Talk to the ranchers, they almost always know where everything is. Most of all have fun and keep the wind in your favor

picks, the trick to getting to go is to take the wife with. We are taking the wives with and they can either go shed hunting with us or shopping to Fargo. Always easier to go if you dont leave the wife just sitting home alone.

I have been hunting all over North Dakota this year, and they have been paired up since the begining of Feb. Calling has been extremely good the past few weeks. My stand to coyote ration is 2:1. I woudn't use the challenge howl unless needed too. Your distress calls will work great with a few interrogation howls at the end.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
