Would like information from the Alexandria area.

Recommended Posts

I was just curious if many have been seeing or hearing coyotes and fox in the immediate area. If anyone has problems with the overpopulation of these predators on their land go ahead and shoot me an email to cwellefson@gmail.com and we will do our best (2 guys) to take care of them. We do not use dogs, it is mostly calling, and some sit and stalk, we are very responsible and check in before and after each hunt.

Thank you

Hi Tanner,

I was wondering if it is alright for my buddy to tag along with you and I. He is more of the caller. If this is possible then I would say it is a go as far as hooking up sometime.

if you come up here you should get here before christmas. theres a group of 15-20 guy that surround a section and drive it with people and dogs and run the coyotes out and the standers on the gravel roads blast the heck out of them. they claim they got around 150 of them last year by osakis. i'm sure its an exageration but its their style of hunting, it makes it hard for guys like me who try to call them in. theres also another large group by parkers prarie who hunt the same way. both groups usually start about christmas or when theres snow.

Yep, I have heard of the Osakis boys! Also heard they trespass quite often. Some farmers in the area (specifically by the Forada swamp) said they are going to keep a keen eye out this year and turn them in if they or their dogs step foot on their land! It makes it alot more difficult for the real sportsmen to get out and get a coyote when they are all educated the easy way. Doesn't take a whole lot for them to let their dogs out to push the whole section, (whether they have permission on certaqin parcels of land or not) and have a coyote run their way while posted on the road or legally in the ditch. I have seen them in action from a distance. Hopefully if there is one of the Osakis boys reading this, they take fair warning about people watching them, including myself. Not to mention the local game warden has been notified of their wrongdoings.

Now it's making sense,that used to be a good area to hunt.Bummer is, it makes it that much harder for respectable hunters to gain permission.

Exactly the situation I have run into. All it takes is one bad scenerio to take place.

I am not TRYING to point fingers but those who do it "sometimes illegally" are the ones who can ruin it for all of us.

Still a motherlode of yotes around LQP and Dawson areas. I suppose you are too good to hunt down there anymore.

There are NO coyotes or fox around the Alexandria, Osakis or Parkers Prairie areas. Just thought I'd let you know that. laugh

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
