SD Coyote..

Recommended Posts

Rost

I have never hunted out west until this last weekend. A buddy and I headed out to call for coyotes. We called an area Saturday, made 10 solid stands and only saw 1 mange coyote (that I missed). After talking to a few people, we found out that mange hit the area really hard this year. Back to the drawing board we went. We spent Sunday morning scouting for a better area and found it. In this particular area, we spotted 4 coyotes in about 1/2 hr.

My buddy called one in on the first stand of the day. After about 20 mins a female came trotting in and I gave her the old 25-06 smack down at about 150 yards. We made two other stands with no luck.

Hunting out there is like nothing else. The scenery alone made the trip well worth it. The following pics do absolutely no justice as how how cool it is out there, but I'll post um up anyways..

Western SD is a riflemans 'target rich environment'. Beautiful country as well. Theres plenty of coyotes south of you. PLENTY. After the snow fell you could not find a deer for all the coyotes in the Bridgewater area. I saw 3 color phases of coyotes while deer hunting there.

Congratulations Ros, nice hunt.

Yes, that's what Open country does, it leaves you breathless.

I lived in central Wyoming for many year and every time I go there I still get amazed at the wide open spaces.

Nice job Rost,

Nice pics, too.

Mange has hit certain parts of the state hard, and it wont get better soon.

The cold snap, may have taken out some of the worst cases last week.

Keep knockin them down!

I talked to a neighbor of mine today, and he said his son that lives up by Highmoore has shot 11

Coyotes this year and 9 of them were bad with the Mange. Seems a lot of areas have that problem. I think it is natures way of thinning them out when there are to many of them around. We had that here in Montana a few years ago. Now they are realy thick again. CAJ

rost; you should head out to the reservation lands around eagle butte and west of mobridge; i spent a week out that way working this summer and ended up glassing five nice yotes and anchoring one on a whim with the .22-two fiddy. cheap license and every guy i talked to said shoot em all and close the gate when you are done!

      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.

      Seeing a lot of greenheads and swans around the metro.  It seems every bit of open water is packed.  I took advantage of some opportunities to film some trumpeters and put a little holiday cheer to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQu99MI1Y6Y

      I found a old trolling motor at a garage sale for like $5-10 bucks, cut the head and motor off of it and used the pole and bracket to clamp on the ducer on my last canoe.

      It should be able to I can shoot through my kayak if I wanted. Canoe should be the same. There great units. Good price and a solid fish finder

      I just saw this online.  What would be the best way to mount the transducer?  Could it shoot through the floor of the canoe?   Humminbird® PiranhaMax™ 4 Sonar PT Portable tranducer, case, rechargeable battery and charger Tilt-mount base makes the screen easy to view 256-color 4.3" 480 x 272 screen DualBeam explores down to 600 ft. 2,400-watt peak-to-peak power output Featuring a portable transducer, portable case, rechargeable battery and a wall charger, Humminbird's PiranhaMax 4 Sonar with PT delivers a compact package for on-the-go fishing adventures.

      Anybody know anything about this lake? Just north of Ely.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Welcome Rick! I use a Humminbird piranha max 4 (non DI). I mounted it in a vexilar Genz case and I use the genz soft pack on it to help protect the screen from scratches. I used it all last summer in the kayak and it worked PERFECT. I use the humminbird suction cup mount and it works well. Even used it on a smaller aluminum boat and it never came off even on plane. This setup to me is ideal for anyway wanting a cheaper rig that works very well IMO.
    • Rick Bancroft
      I want to set up the canoe with a portable transducer so that it can be used in the boundary waters and portaged, etc.  Anyone have ideas on the set-up and what sonar would be a good choice?   I probably don't want too hi-tech so I can conserve battery life.
