Was just wondering if Tim the Minnesota hunter got a good price for your Yotes you got around Scobey MT. Glad to see somebody doing good the first trip up here. caj

CAJ,

Did we meet you out there? We sure did meet alot of nice people out there...actually enjoyed that about as much as the hunt itself. It's some beautiful country...beautiful ranches, and some very helpful/hospitable people out there.

This was our first serious predator hunt. Our aim was to try to get somewhere where there was good numbers of yotes, and less hunting pressure. We saw a fair number of dogs, and definitely learned alot. We also found there is a definite learning curve to this sport, and we should have taken a few more out.

The dogs we did shoot were not the greatest quality. One had mange, no tail, and probably wouldn't have made it through the winter. A couple more were rubbed pretty good. The nicest one I sniped with a 22-250, hit it in the spine/neck, and about took it's head off. We did shoot a pretty nice fox too. I left the furs with my hunting partners (OMG did they stink...the animals I mean). They had a connection with a trapper in their neighborhood, and were going to pass them off to him to see what he could do with them. I was just pretty much glad to be rid of them.

Overall, we had a great time. We'd like to come back, and probably will. Just wish it wasn't so far away!

Tim

Tim Yous should be here right now. It is -20 with a 25 mile an hour wind. Makes the Yotes slow up a little. HA HA. Still no snow. Couple freinds of mine shot 6 the day before yesterday. Was nice and just before the storm rolled in. They were on the move. One had the mange, and the rest were good. Hope to see you out here again. CAJ

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
