scent killer, white clothing, camo clothing, variety of calls(hand calls or electronic or both), Shotgun or rifle, maybe a decoy, ect.

Basically its up to you on how much effort and patience you are going to put forth. Once you have your first yote you'll be hooked and want more.

AND if you plan on sitting and callin, either get waterproof pants, or use a butt seat to sit on in the snow.

I am also trying to get going in this sport. I have read the regs but am still a little unclear. I am planning on hunting southern MN for the coyotes, and it is alright to use the rifle out there (since its shotgun only for deer), correct? Also, how long do you typically give a stand/calling without any action before moving?

Yes, rifles are okay for coyotes state wide, shotguns work as well. I would give each stand a minimum of 20 minutes before thinking about moving. I have waited as long as 45 minutes before I move to a new location.....

One trick I have done is to sit in my deer stand so my movements and scent are less obvious to the yotes.

It depends on what time of day you are hunting them. morning close just when its getting light and evening when its just getting dark i usually stay a min of 45 min. I only do this because i tried staying longer once and it payed off. I was on stand for 1 hr and had 3 yotes come in just as the sun went down. Its payed off many times staying longer. Now hunting at night i usually wait 30 min and if i dont see or hear anything i move. Same thing if its windy out during all times of the day.

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.

    • It's been going on for years. Just look at how many times the Howard Stern show has pranked the news with fake guests.
    • Maybe some people feel a  lbgt,, black lives matter, sierra club, feminist, white guilt, supported candidate better represents them than say an NRA endorced candidate.
    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.

    • I think he means keep the prisons full and the private prison industry in money at all costs. Welcome to the wonderful world of donor $$$ "trumping" common sense. Nothing like buying laws so you can profit, not that this is anything new.
