coyotes in the wind?

Recommended Posts

mnhunter79

hey everyone!

Went a little west today (2-16-08) by the tracy, mn area in serch of yotes. Talked with a couple people that have seen coyotes on a regular basis in areas. we tried calling (all types) and pushing smaller draws/valleys with trees, cattails, crp grass,and creek bottoms. There was a south wind at about 25 to 30 mph. (Wind was always in our face while hunting). seen tons of tracks, and [PoorWordUsage] at every spot we hunted (all private). Do yotes hide in the deepest, thickest cover they can find and not move all day when the wind is bad? Does anyone have any advise on this? Or answers?

answers? can't help you there, but I would think the coyotes would like to get out of the wind, like everything else. They could have been denned up, or not on the property at that time. I am heading out tomorrow (monday) hoping the sudden cold snap tomorrow morning brings out the hunger instinct

if your going to push cover like a deer drive, put your posters down wind and your drivers walk with the wind. the yotes or fox will try to sneak out at a little slower pace than if you get right on top of them and bust em out at a dead run.

and with the warmer temps they could very likely just been laying out on the fence lines or rockpiles too...good luck getting on them they will frustrate you more than any other species i.m.o.

frustration? ya i know all about that this year. it was only me and a buddy makin a push. we did it the same as we did phesant hunting except when we were phesant hunting the coyotes came runnin out, and now that we are hunting for them they won't show themselves. gonna try it out there again when it's not windy, and do more callin'.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
