Varmint Hunting question

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anybody knows if it is legal to bait coyotes or not? Me and a buddy are planning on hunting them and he is friends with a butcher who will give us bones and scraps if we want them. Also what caller's do you guys use or think sound really good?

Thanks

Sure you can bait them. I use an open reed call, it's name is a critter call. an inexpierenced caller can make this one sound pretty good. I have to say, I'm not an expert at calling though. Maybe someone else can weigh in.

I use randy anderson style open reeds and the verminators tweety, syco tweety,and thumper. Very good calls and cheap like 11.00 or something for the verminators. Also I have a preymaster E caller no good when it gets cold stick with mouth calls.

Baiting works good when they have to use it i have had a dead steer out for about 5 weeks and it hasnt been touched yet but then they aren't really stressed yet with no snow so easy picking for them. Shot my 1st yote tonite in swichgrass at about ten ft we chased her back and forth in a patch of willows and grass for over a good hour till we cornered her in some grass and she belly crawled out in to a open area betwwen a clump of willows and one shot of 00 buck took care of her.

    • I think Parise has been great this year, like his old self,  one of the few bright spots during a slow start. Liking Greenway more and more, he isn't producing yet but he looked good last night, really starting to use his size out there. Need to see more out of Coyle and Nino. 
    • I still run my fl8 that I bought in 1996. I don’t need zoom and I have watched many friends with the new fancy locators not see fish under the ice. Not me I catch em. No stinking updates for my fl 8 and my fl 8 has fallen down the stairs more times then me. It still runs I had new brushes put in after I fell on it and smashed the casing. O yeah i fished all day with the smashed casing let’s see the new units do that. It’s fixedand runs perfect. Never notice the noise you guys are talking about as I am to busy catching fish!
    • Does that come with ear plugs to drown out all the noise?
    • Since there isn't a lot of covering ground I just don't need the last 30 seconds on a graph or a GPS map to know I've been sitting in the same spot for the last hour.  My phone is always on me when I need to move and I run navionics.  Half the year I'm in my truck when I'm on the move anyway.  If I'm on a dogsled in the bwca I have a handheld.   I'll stick to the flasher.   I upgraded to a bigger screen with the bird, but I just dont need a ton of features that really only make sense on a moving boat.   Just my two cents.
    • Graphs are nice for fishing in a boat for sure.  They show you the nice big history picture of what has already gone by and gives you a good view of what the changing bottom depths look like as you float around.  Really though, when your fishing in a little hole over the same bottom for an hour or all day. What’s the point?  The important part of a graph for ice fishing is that ¼” or so of edge on the far right and what is happening on it real time.  Which then, is just like a Flasher only giving you real time info and why I went back to one from my graph.   Worley Worley!  😉  
    • Good luck on your hunt, let us know how you do!
    • I have another weekend in me to fish and fight the winds and weather and then the boat will be done for the year.  Guess it is that time of the season but would really love to get another couple outings in but such is life! 
    • who uses flashers now days haha; I'm a helix convert now too, i was hesitant at first as the Lowrance had a LCD screen a few years ago for ice fishing but the lag was unusable, but hbird figured it out. Mapping, flasher screen if wanted, and sonar all in one, its like a smartphone; everything in one.   also, I have not had any interference issues with others using the helix, especially with all of hte chirp setttings
