Has any one ever had a coyote steal their dead geese from the decoys?

Recommended Posts

Last weekend I was hunting a 40 acre oat field with some friends south of harding, when all of a sudden a coyote came out of the woods and snatched up one of are dead geese. It scared the sh*t out of me...must have came within 10 feet of us....(Contact Us Please) those eliminator blinds must work becuase I don't think he even knew we were there? Has anyone else had that happen to them? Should I have put some F-shot into him?

This must be rhetorical question because the answer is so obviously yes it isn't worth answering. Although it does make we wonder...who in the world shoots F-shot anymore???

You are wondering if you should have shot a coyote at 10 yds? I would have dump a few rounds in the thing.

They still make F shot???? LOL

Never a yote, but in Alaska a few years back the Bald Eagles were taking our dead ducks right out of the decoys. I wasn't about to shoot at one of those though grin.gif I would definately drop the yote in a new york minute. F shot, T shot, even BB will bring them down.

I don't think I could have resisted popping him if he didn't even touch any birds.

Had a yote sneak up on bigfoot dekes last yr. My lab saw it and wanted to go after it. As she started to break i nicked her with the collar in which she yelped. When the yote heard that he came on a dead run towards me. Must of thought she was another yote or something. I layed down behing a deke and dumped him with BBB when he got within 35 yards. (actually he ran down to a slough about 100yds away and died) 2nd time i had a yote sneak up on goose dekes.

      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.

      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!

      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
    • BobT
      I didn't think of that! Probably should have glanced down the hole, eh?

      Just another reminder that walleye/pike season ends on Sunday too for inland waters.  Don't get caught targeting the wrong species of fish next week.
