Daytime Coyote Hunting?

Recommended Posts

First year hunting coyotes & Fox, have had pretty good success at night. Just wondering with the moonlight fading away, if anybody is having any success during the daylight(9am-4pm)or is it a waste of time?

I'd still lean towards early and late but this is the one and only time of the year you'll occasionally see them moving in the open during daylight, at least in my neck of the woods. Its the coyote 'rut'!

with the cold temps, and coyotes paired, up hunting is awesome all day long


Know this for a fact? Just curious I've personally never had any luck during the day other than early/late here in Minnesota. Not that it's impossible but unless he has tons of spots to call I wouldn't burn them during the low percentage time.

I have about 10 spots and growing, a couple of them I haven't touched yet. Just from watching video's, the times posted are like 10am, 2pm, I assumed the locations are secluded and/or on 1,000+acre ranchs.

With my schedule it's difficult to hunt around sunrise & sunset

*Thanks for the feedback.

Anytime is a good time to call them, for me ideal is the moon, second is right before dark, and then in the morning, but when its been 15-20 below in the morning they seem to be moving more in the daylight, the earlies response i have gotten was at 330pm but that was hunting along a river. Biggest thing with the daylight is getting away from people to where the are hanging out in the daytime.

Looking over the menu:

The deer are in the foreground, and a coyote is standing in the background, on the edge of the hill.

There is only one left of the group of three now, and he is extremely lucky........ for now.

Hey Reddog. Just wondering if you could give a rough location (for my curiosity). I been taking the backroads to & from work. I haven't been as fortunate to spot any coyote or fox in the fields

Reddog, do you have a digital camera adapter on your spotting scope or do you just hold the camera up to the eye piece? Great pics, keep them coming!!

delzz.

I live in Northwest Iowa

Snowman,

I simply put my Olympus Point and shoot camer up to mys potting scope, with the rear viewfinder on and when it looks like its seeing the whole picture, I click it off. Not real hard, and not photo quality, but it gets the point across, when you want to show you buddies what you seen.

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
