NMG&F just put a trap near Hardcastle Gap for a problem bear....its just south of the lake. There was lots of elk in the area around the lake a couple weeks ago, but don't know how many hunters have been in there since. Mtns east of the lake are usually good.
When calling coyotes, more often than not they will circle on a target they are
coming into and approach from the downwind side. Presumably they do this in
order to align what they smell, with what they are hearing.
This means that you should always have your downwind side camouflaged and have
an open shooting lane. If the area is heavily covered the coyote could come in
take a look and be gone, with you none the wiser.
