Coyote/fox locations

Recommended Posts

Once most of the other seasons wrap up I'm planning on trying for some coyotes and foxes this winter. Was wondering if any body who hunts public or private land within an hour of the cities has seen or knows of much sign from these critters on the land they hunt(especially 'yotes), or have heard complaints from land owners, game farms, etc. Thanks

I spent alot of time in Nemadji hunting bears this year and almost every night just after sunset we would hear a number of them howling and yipping. Only saw one in all that time but I know there in there. Nemadji is about 2+ hours from the cities.

There are tons around the Hinckley area. Not far north. There are some cattle farmers up there that would love to get rid of them.

There are quite a few in the west central mn area. I'm a couple hours northwest of the cities. Heard of a lot of bow hunters losing deer to yotes when they had to be tracked or left until the next day. Saw a few yotes, but no fox, when slug hunting. Find a clear moonlit night after a snowfall, get a varmint call and have a blast.

I saw a couple and heard a lot more this year while deer hunting up at Pine City. Once winter sets in, you should have no trouble getting permission from farmers to hunt their land. One guy had lost all his barn cats to coyotes and wants them all dead. His neighbor is trying to raise pheasants and REALLY wants them dead. I'd tell you where, but I plan to hunt it myself. But there's plenty of them up there all through the area. Just shoot to kill. They learn quickly, and once they're shot at and missed, they get really hard to get.

Wow, thatnks guys, the info is greatly appreciated. If any one knows some landowners who aren't happy with the yotes, just gimme a name and location and I'd be greatful, although I dont think Ill have much trouble seeing as no famers are keen on the critters. [email protected]

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
