SD Coyote..

Recommended Posts

I have never hunted out west until this last weekend. A buddy and I headed out to call for coyotes. We called an area Saturday, made 10 solid stands and only saw 1 mange coyote (that I missed). After talking to a few people, we found out that mange hit the area really hard this year. Back to the drawing board we went. We spent Sunday morning scouting for a better area and found it. In this particular area, we spotted 4 coyotes in about 1/2 hr.

My buddy called one in on the first stand of the day. After about 20 mins a female came trotting in and I gave her the old 25-06 smack down at about 150 yards. We made two other stands with no luck.

Hunting out there is like nothing else. The scenery alone made the trip well worth it. The following pics do absolutely no justice as how how cool it is out there, but I'll post um up anyways..

Rost, way to go! I have yet to shoot a coyote. Just got off phone with a guy in Timberlake SD and he shot one out of the front door in his farmhouse this morning. Where were you at?

Freeman and Bridgewater? My inlaws live between the two towns. Coyotes got bad over there this year. Deer got hard to find because the coyotes kept them out of my hunting areas. I hunt coyotes but havent had much luck connecting. Sure have scared a few.

Way to go Rost. The country on the west side of the river is truely spectacular and I can't wait to get back and call some yotes! During our deer hunt last fall I must have seen a dozen or so yotes, but didn't want to wack em cuz of spooking deer. I should have anyway, but my hunting buddy really didn't like the idea. Lots of country to cover over there and I know there is a ton of coyotes!!! Good luck in the future. SB

Nice pictures!

Hunted for doggies around Huron this last weekend, made two stands and didn't see anything. Decided to just go drive down shelterbelts after that because it was so cold. As soon as it warms up a bit I'll be back at it.

    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.  
    • I had a contractor do my garage floor.  Here is the work order and quoted amount.   Work To Be Done:
      *Epoxy concrete garage floor. (784sq.ft.)
      -­‐Shot blast surface of floor.  (Work  Shop area) -­‐Light acid wash over existing floor, let dry over night.
      -­‐Apply primer coat of commercial grade epoxy. (4mil 650 Armor seal)
      -­‐Apply flakes to primer coat, 100% coverage. (4mil)
      -­‐Shop Vac. Up flakes that didn’t adhere to the floor. (Colors will be gray and red in color)
      -­‐Apply coat of clear commercial grade epoxy.  (4mil)
      -­‐Final coat of Armor seal 650-­‐sealer coat. (2mil)
      -­‐Cure time-­‐ 24 hours for foot traffic and 72 hours for vehicle traffic before use.
      Total Cost: $3,400
    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.

    • its a ice castle ac unit; i believe the running watts are 1200-1400; nothing else would be running off this outlet; and i believe i purchased a 12guage cord to keep it plugged in to maintain the deep cycle battery and to provide power.   this also raises another question then... am I ok using a standard (16 guage perhaps?) extension cord to connect to the power source at campsites? If not, I should probably replace this...
    • Please don't do this! I have no problem running my camper ac off a 20 amp outlet!
    • You can but it would be much easier if you had some help. Biggest thing is to open the clamps up so it can sit on the boat quicker and give your arms a break.  I swapped out an 18HP for a 35HP and it was like trying to carry a 100lb sack of potatoes. Got it done but heavy. Today I would not even think of doing it myself but back then I was a little more hard headed. I am also assuming its a tiller with no controls to hook up. I would guess it will be around 125lbs according to Yamahas site.
