Who hunts coyotes this time of year? What methods do you use? Thanks for your help!

I have gone out before in the fall, never quite this early, but a friend of mine does (to keep the numbers down on his cousin's farm) and really relies on pup in distress at this time of the year. He actually has a lot of success in using that pup in distress at this time of the year. Brings in the pups and the parents as well

I called one in Saturday with the pup call. This got a pack of them yipping and howling and then a single started howling close by so I hit the lone howl call and he/she came right in. Not sure which sex because my 243 winchester short mag destroyed the back end at about 125 yards.

This time of the year if you concentrate on calling in pups you will have a success rate. My avatar was the only adult we got

How is the fur??? I plan on trapping/ calling a few in the next week or so to get rid of the urge. Tried one call in the super wind one night while scouting for ducks, no luck.

The fur is light yet, the hide is real blue yet, It needs to get a little colder so they can keep their fur they are putting on.

I agree this rain is going putting a cramp on my calling plans. Well, on a postive side I can finish up my fur shed and finish working on my traps.

    • that would be samanthasquatch 
    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
