coyote hunting

I wish I had the wireless. I bought mine just prior to the wireless being available. Cabela's had the wireless on special for $150 last week.

I missed that sale dang it ! Cry

I just bought myself one from Cabela's last night,.. they had a special for triple rewards points on any purchase over $100.00 so I settled for that instead.

I can't wait to get it and try it out. Seeing that I'm planing on using it on my farm property and it's pretty much all open with the exception of about 15 acres out of the 80. I'm hoping to nail at least a few of them I keep seeing and hearing out back. They claim that it's possible to achieve close to 250 yards in distance between the user and the unit with the right landscape conditions.

Now that there's a good base of snow around they should stick out like a sore thumb with the white backdrop. Thumbs up

coyote hunting

I use a Mouse Squeaker taped to my shooting stick. I start with a series of high pitched distress calls followed by lower "dying" squeaks. I hunt along the Wolf river and set up in wood lines bordering meadows.that they use to travel back and forth. I've been successful year round. Wherever you hunt good concealment and most of all wind direction is really important. If they see you or smell you...you'll never see them. Pretty much common sense.

I bought a Ruger Mini-14 (I couldn't afford an AR-15 or one of it's cousins) for coyotes when I had a ranch in eastern Colorado. My wife insisted on fresh eggs so the chickens were like a bait set. I could shoot the coyotes in my pajamas off the back deck when I wasn't watching TV. Now I really have to hunt for them. I still use the Ruger with a short 3X9X40 scope made by Norstar. It has a variable lighted (red) reticle that helps when it's starting to get dark. When it's pitch black I use an ATN night vision scope. It has a varible focus IR illuminator good to about 100m. I use that for coon hunting at night too. I like the Mini-14 because it's affordable, accurate and allows for a quick follow up shot if neccessary. You can scope it easily and there is a lot of after market stuff you can buy without breaking the bank. It may not be a tack driver but I don't worry about that...it's the kill that counts.

I use Wolf .223 varmint ammo. The bullets have a red plastic tip and expand nicely from the Ruger. Pelt damage has been minimal if I do my job and put the bullet where it''s supposed to go. Shot placement is always important if you're hunting for fur.

I also carry a clip full of 55 gr FMJ in case I'm attacked by a wild rampaging gray squirrel that charges me at point blank range. One can never be too careful out there.

Good luck and good hunting
