willey coyote got away

Recommended Posts

carpshooterdeluxe

while goose hunting in a field this morning i noticed a coyote trying to put the sneak on our spread from about 100 yards away; squeaked him in from the layout blind to about 50 yards and gave him an @ss full of hi-density BB for his troubles when he winded us and whirled around for an escape. just wondering if anybody else has had any yotes come in like that? its definetly a first for me! just wish i could have dropped him clean; beautifull pelt on him!

We had the same thing happen last year and got him. Got a nice pic of him and the geese but it's not digital and I don't have a scanner.

its funny, i was on my stand the other morning and i saw one come right under my stand so i shot her and she ran 30 yards and laid over then 5 mins later a second one came but didnt get as close to me as the other one did she stopped about 45-50 yards away from me, so i ended up shooting her too. i never thought i would get two coyotes with in 5 mins of each other. i rather shoot those instead of deer honestly.

I shot one with my bow about three weeks ago, it gave one little yip, ran off about 60 yards and keeled over. My only regret is that it was still too warm for the fur to be prime, I would have liked to skinned it out and got the hide tanned.

Shoot them with whatever you have. Need to get rid of them; go for the head!

Not saying we need to have more canines running around our areas. But, just do it right and make sure you have a killing shot before letting an animal run off full of bird shot.

Yep i agree every animal deserves to be put down fast and Ethically, yes even a yote. no animal deserves to suffer.

Actually, a lot of 'yote hunters in the desert southwest use shotguns with BB shot, although in those cases they are shooting lead.

Gerry Blair is famous for rolling 'yotes with his old Ithica 10 gauge semi auto and copper plated lead BB's.

Lots of 40-50 yard kills with lead. With steel, I would venture 35 yards would be about the limit due to the rapid energy fall off.

Shoot them with anything you have at hand!!

This is one animal that we can not stand at all.

If you have ever seen how they will kill for the fun of it, you would feel the same too!!

Had one or two go thru a barn yard two years back, sickest thing I have ever witnessed.They didn't kill one or two and take them away for food, they attacked 1/2 of what was in there maiming many that we had to eventually put down. Neighbors dogs were also attacked by them.

My 2 cents worth is, if you get a chance plug there @ss any way you can.

I arrowed a doe at 8:15am Sunday morning. Because I wasn't sure of the shot, I let it go for 4 hours before I started to trail it. It only went 50 yards from my stand and i found it in 15 minutes. The coyotes found it before me. Both hind quarters were gone and the entrance wound was eaten out. Too bad to lose half a deer.

There are some of us who actively hunt Mr. Coyote, in fact we are heading north tonight for a couple days of chasing the old song dogs. If you have a desire to rid your property of these predators, we would gladly help you out, in fact, we will take you out with us to enjoy the fun. One of us has a Foxpro FX3 caller and I have a Minaska Outdoors M1 Bandit, both are wireless MP3 callers that have a range of about 250 yards from the caller to remote. We are always looking to help people out with their predator problems. We don't want deer/turkey/goose/grouse/duck/ or pheasant hunting access, just predators.

A single dose of .223 does a real bang up job on the coyote too laugh.gif

I was down at my in laws this weekend, we went out and I had some battery connection issues with the remote, fixed that after 10 minutes of cursing under my breath. Called in a number of crows, shot one, missed the other. I was going to give you a call but I am heading north tonight, and the bride has decided that will be enough hunting for this week. Have you been hearing them lately? Take a pumpkin, fill it with water, re plug the hole and hit it with a ballistic tip out of your new rig. good fun.

I will call or email you next week Val.

hevi-shot BB with a pattern master choke out of my 3.5. inch super x2; patterns @ roughly 60 percent at 55 yards. i just shot behind him somewhat due to him winding me and whirrling around on a dime. first dusting of snow and he or any of his buddies unfortunate enough to be caught in the open is going to have a nice speedy .22 diameter hollow point in him from the M-77.

Try Too Fish

JUst an FYI

Have you checked with a CO about remote callers? Our Co Says they are illegal. Says its part of taking animals with use of radio. Also said is OK to be remote just cant be wireless!

I think it sucks but that is Direct from our CO! I do wonder what other co's think!

This seems absurd to me, the remote control for these caller controls the machine, is not the actual caller.

But it's a good point of discussion, like the handheld light at night.

Let's see what are the replies.

Well I posted the question on a predator hunting dedicated forum and yes the reply is: remote controlled callers are not legal in MN, they are considered same as remote control, motorized spinning wing decoy for duck hunting.

We have to change this, I assume the law cannot keep up with technology.

I just returned from up north, I will have to look into this wireless caller issue. when I did the research before, I was told it was okay to have one, I will contact the local CO and the state and see what they have to say. went to the garage and got the regs:

Page 26 of 2006 regulations: "Unprotected animals, weasels, coyotes, gophers, porcupines, striped skunks, adn all other animals for which there is no closed seasons or other protection are unprotected animals. They may be taken in any manner except with the aid of artificial lights or motor vehicle to drive, chase, run over, or kill the animal...."

on page 30: "Radios and Other Wireless Devices -Using walkie talkies, cell phones, or other radio equipment to take big game or small game is unlawful.

-A DNR permit is required to take unprotected animals with the aid or radio equipment.

Now here is where it is gonna get fuzzy, and I think where a lot of confusion comes in, when I contacted the DNR last spring, the said as long as I am not in contact with another person with radio equipment, the caller is fine, yes it uses a radio signal, a FRS signal to start,stop,vol up vol down, but there is no vocalizing with another person.... I will email the state and see what they happen to say this year, but I know that last year my local CO was completely fine with me building my homemade caller that was wireless.

Of course, they made a mistake in the use of handheld lights portion of the first regulation, it is now legal to use hand held lights from january until until march 15. here are those regulations which now cloud up this whole topic too:

Page 46

A person hunting coyote from Jan 1 to March 15th may use an artificial light under the following conditions:

-While on foot and not within the public right of way

-using a shotgun

-USING A CALLING DEVICE

not within 200 feet of vehicle.

I purchased a predator calling device, it is an electronic calling device, but a calling device none the less.

I will post what my local CO and the state have to say. If I am wrong I will get the radio permit. stay tuned

Oh yeah, I was up around pine river/longville this week doing some grouse/ducks/ predator calling. Didn't see any coyotes up there, but there were deer everywhere. Saw them along the road sides at 1:00 in the afternoon, feeding in the ditches. Had something crash through the woods at sundown on our 2nd to last calling set, never heard it run away, could have sworn I heard it grunt/groan at me. OF course it didn't help that we were watching a beer hunting video the night before. I thought I was gonna be a big snack.

this post is too long....stay tuned for the State's response

We have lots of coyotes in our deer hunting area by Pine City. I'm going to keep a shotgun in my stand for running dogs and I got some ammo two days ago. I got 12 ga., 3&1/2 in.number four buckshot. I think that might just spoil their whole day. grin.gif

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On! 
    • monstermoose78
      Well monstermoose78 is done ice fishing around here for the year. Why you ask I fell through yes there was 28-30 inches of ice on the lake, but the shoreline nope. Went fishing with @Cret Jigs and we had fun fishing. I cut lots of holes and we got some good ones for the knife. Cret jigs brought a plank for the way out but on the way in I did not make it to the plank. Cret jigs helped me get my stuff the shore and out. I worry about the guy on the wheeler and they guy who used the plank to get out too. Thanks Cret jigs for a fun day. 
    • redlabguy
      To all you guys who’ve been keeping us posted, thank you. I’m an islander so I don’t have much hope for the opener, but I’ve been reading all the posts (read them year around), including entertaining posts on new gear, and, again, thanks for letting a lot of guys know what’s going on there. The current weather, forecast and web cams, give me hope! I’m thinking I may get back home in three weeks, maybe four. Keep the sun shining, Dick

      What a difference a day makes, yesterday the dam was locked up tight and today it's roaring. Walleye should be running this week...
    • IceHawk
      Well this morning was officially the end of the ice season for me.   Its been a lot of days on the ice this winter and I have to admit I'm  a little burnt out.   It wasn't easy but it was time to end it.  Have to admit It was a sad moment putting the gear away but it was time as needed space today to put the boat in the garage   Learned a lot of new water and reacquainted myself with some old standbys. Fished 10 different counties this winter so definitely fished a lot of different areas.  Fished many species on the ice this winter so there never was a dull moment. Didn't take a ton of pics just a few need to take more just have never been a pic type of guy LOL.   Iced 7 walleyes between 26-28 3/4 all on local lakes.  So just a tip if you dedicate some time locally big eyes can be found. Fished panfish everywhere in the state highlight area for big fish being Becker and Ottertail Douglas counties. Biggest gill this winter was 10 3/4    many 10's came topside but couldn't break 11 this winter. Craps 15 inchers were tops. Good fish but had goals set at a 16.  Some things learned this ice season where number one lure for the eyes was a old school hammered silver Swedish pimple. It far out produced anything else.   Kenders tungsten where my mainstay for gills and crappies. The plastics of choice were power bait wishbones,  chigger frys, and Northland impulse mayfly's.  The catfish were a hoot and a  change of pace did well on Maynards slammers Glow red. The equipment and gear I was running and never failed me all season were Thorne Bros Rods- For eyes Perch sweethearts. For the Panfish I was running  Power Noodles, panfish sweethearts,  and my favorite the Tripwire. Reels Pflueger Presidents, Prestige ,and Supremes.. Did use some inlines also from 13 fishing The free falls where worth every penny. Ran a K-Drill 8 inch early and late and During the thick ice Ran my strikemaste Lazer.  Vexilar Electronics the old trusty FL18 my eyes underwater, Please Don't  think that I'm pushing these products because I'm sponsored by them, I'm Not. Just want to give a thumbs up and honest opinion on  some top notch equipment that has worked and weathered the storm of a good hardwater season. Realize we all work hard for our dollars and I can honestly say these products where worth every penny and never let me down!  Well Off to the Garage to start getting the boat ready for the Next season  By the Way big Shout out to some of the best Anglers I had the chance to share the ice with this season from FM.  Thanks  Borch,  Bass Thumb,  Moose,  Eyeguy, Rick G , Tom Sawyer for shareing some ice time with me.  Hopefully I get to meet and fish with a few other FMer's this summer or next hardwater.  We had some great Times great laughs and managed to even ice a few fish   Looking forward to having a few summer outings in the future.  BYE BYE Ice Hello open water

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!
