Prime time for yotes all


Cooter

Recommended Posts

Just talked to my uncle this weekend, he lives in yote infested country. Anyway, the breeding season must be kicking off. They've been howling and yippin like crazy everynight. Plus, he had one making a ruckus all afternoon by his house, the thing finally was out in his hay field about 3 in the afternoon - he missed it! Anyway, this happens every year about this time and its looks like its underway, so get out hunting if you can. Its like the yote rut, about the only time you'll actually see them cruising during the day in most areas.

Was out last weekend and saw a group of three running around. Wasn't able to get a shot cause some (Contact US Regarding This Word) came a shot at them out of the window.

I've always wanted to shoot some yotes but dont know what to do with em after the kill. What's the next step after skinning? I'd like to some predator reduction in my duck hunting spots.

Find a fur buyer, or buy a home tanning kit and do it yourself. You may be able to get somewhere around 15 bucks for one.

Next step is to freeze and sell them unless you want a rug or mount. Just make sure the hide is more or less perfect or they aren't worth squat. Maybe make a cheap/homemade coyote decoy out of a less than good condition hide. Tan it first or have it tanned. smirk.gif

The Sunday Mpls paper had an article saying that a group of hunters in Wheaton, Minn. have gotten 50 coyotes already this winter. Keep wackin them dogs. smile.gif

I wouldn't doubt that number. There are a lot of dogs around that area. Keep shooting them and keep seeing the pheasants numbers on the rise.

Near Eleva, which is about 18 miles south of Eau Claire. Would love to run that area with hounds, buts its right on Hwy 93 which gets lots of traffic.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick
