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..

Western SD is a riflemans 'target rich environment'. Beautiful country as well. Theres plenty of coyotes south of you. PLENTY. After the snow fell you could not find a deer for all the coyotes in the Bridgewater area. I saw 3 color phases of coyotes while deer hunting there.

Congratulations Ros, nice hunt.

Yes, that's what Open country does, it leaves you breathless.

I lived in central Wyoming for many year and every time I go there I still get amazed at the wide open spaces.

Nice job Rost,

Nice pics, too.

Mange has hit certain parts of the state hard, and it wont get better soon.

The cold snap, may have taken out some of the worst cases last week.

Keep knockin them down!

I talked to a neighbor of mine today, and he said his son that lives up by Highmoore has shot 11

Coyotes this year and 9 of them were bad with the Mange. Seems a lot of areas have that problem. I think it is natures way of thinning them out when there are to many of them around. We had that here in Montana a few years ago. Now they are realy thick again. CAJ

rost; you should head out to the reservation lands around eagle butte and west of mobridge; i spent a week out that way working this summer and ended up glassing five nice yotes and anchoring one on a whim with the .22-two fiddy. cheap license and every guy i talked to said shoot em all and close the gate when you are done!

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota snowmobile trail conditions are in good shape. The Baudette trail is great north of Knight Island. Walleye action heats up in periods of stable weather. The best catching is happening in 21-25ft, with the most productive method being a dead-stick beside an actively jigged rattle bait such as a buckshot or rippin’ rap. Glow white/pink is out producing other colors. The late ice bite can be phenomenal on Lake of the Woods, ice permitting we will have houses out through the end of the month!   Canadian fishing is recommended via snowmobile as they are light enough not to drop into the slush as easy as other track vehicles. Crappies are still filling buckets and walleye are actively feeding on reef break lines and points. Walleye season is open through April 14th.    Sunset Lodge
    • Stuff is getting hard to find so best load up on ammo I'd you find it.  Many have rebates going now so that helps some.   I haven't shot the new Feferal TSS shot yet but guys that have report excellent patterns and downrange energy.  Luke Don mentioned 45 yards is doable depending on your gun's pattern.  Two springs ago my dad dumped a big Tom at 54 yards, (misjudged the yardage and bird was working away) with the federal heavyweight in 6 shot with his 20 gauge.  I'm not advocating for shooting those distances, but it's a testmate to how far this ammo has come. 
    • I've been seeing them in corn fields and around home owner homes.
    • if you have gone through a set of carbides in 1000 miles you definitely need to change them now as you are getting a lot of wear 
    • Just a reminder this Seminar is tonight.
    • I did shoot the RX-1 but there was more hand vibration and a little louder. RX-3 did not have any of that . Also could just be in my head but felt smoother in the draw too.
    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
