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.

      I am coming up there Sept 5 and staying a week.  I can hardly wait!  I want to get in on the trolling bite before it gets too late.

      One of the reasons I decided to try them is size. Can't find shiners here and the fatheads are small, almost as small as crappie minnows. The light pike sucker minnows are 4" - 5" and with the water cooling down and the later part of the season, I'm thinking the size will more closely match natural forage. We'll see how things go.

      Went out of superior entry yesterday morning. Found some decent laker action. They were all on the small side and most all of them came in 52 fow on the riggers set at 45 ft. Ended up with 7 lakers and a bonus walleye. Had a lot of quick releases on the riggers as well so probably smaller Lakers.

      One of the lakers had 14 pieces of minnows in it's gut!! And it still attacked my spoon

      By the way, we saw three nice bucks in a group on Wakemup Village Rd on the way home.  I was sort of surprised since They were clearly in a group, and I thought bucks were more solitary.    Looked like 6-8 pointers.    Good looking deer.

      Went out late last week out of the Wisc entry and dropped a line in 55 feet of water and nailed one right off the bat before setting any other lines out. Trolled till 100am and we picked up 5 lakers and one nice walleye. Walleye went back.   Most on dipseys and one came off a  4 oz snap weight right off the back with spoons. No particular coleor
    • tacklejunkie
      Agree with the above. But I've also caught plenty of eating sized walleyes with them, also

      I've used light suckers when I couldn't get shiners or rainbows and was going after bigger walleye and they did work.

      We had bought bait for pike fishing last winter, well I sent my wife in to buy it while I fueled the truck.  Scoop of crappies and a dozen suckers for tip ups.  She came back with a scoop of crappies and a dozen light pike suckers.  Those are for pike, right?   We couldn’t get on the lake we intended to so went to plan B for walleyes with friends.  I “gave em a try” and was really impressed how well they worked.  I’ll definitely do it again.

      Went to Landing last night (Saturday).   Had reservations and got a nice table by the window.   Server was working hard but seemed like maybe she was new and over loaded.    My iced tea was served in a shorter glass, and the water was plastic cups.  Maybe the dishwasher was behind.   Food was good and served hot.   My burger was a little over cooked but not bad enough to make me complain to the place.  Just you guys.      Prices moderate.  They  had run out of artichokes for the artichoke dip...  Price was good.   Plenty food for me and mrs.     No alcohol, my buddy is on methotrexate and gets one beer a week.   His was friday at the cook vfw burger night which I highly recommend.
