Nice pics CAVTrooper. All my pics were the old type as when I did all my serious Varminting there were no digital cameras.
Tranny went out in my wifes POS Grand Cherokee too. Now we have a Toyota Sequoia and man it sucks gas. I have been driving 4Runners for a while now.

How 'bout just hunting pics:

http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b249/scootergmc/11-23-05-1.jpg

FWIW, these were not "hunting club" pheasants where you have to shoo them away from your vehicle when you pull into the parking lot. These were actual "holy hell, that thing made me crap my pants when it jumped out" pheasants. :D

beautiful birds! Ive never been hunting for pheasant, I only shoot crows. How do you prepare them and how do they taste?

When I am fortunate enough to get one, I give it to my friend who owns the ranch where we hunt. The ones I've had have been baked similar to a turkey and we even deep fried one for thanksgiving last year. The turkey was much better. It still has a gamey taste I don't particularly care for. In that pic, the one at the bottom is now mounted on my wall.

If they're in the middle of nowhere leave them for the buzzards and fertilizer. Something else will eat them most likely.

If they're in the orchard behind me I toss 'em on the trimmings burn pile. Something else usually drags them out and eats them before the pile gets torched anyways.

The rifle above is an aluminum stocked .223, 20", parkerized, w/Piccatinny I ordered directly form Legacy Sports after seeing it advertised in Predator Xtreme Magazine. It's a tad heavy for carrying, 12+#, with the IOR scope and loaded. Breaking it in, shooting cheap Winnie White Box, it shoots minute of coyote all day, and a 7 shot group was about 5/8". Off a rest or sticks, it's a coyote killer for sure. I've got others for comparison, and this rifle's a good one.

I bought it because it's the wildest looking bolt rifle I've ever seen and it looks good in a photograph.

Re pc photos - If you don't get it on video, or at least take lots and lots of stills, no one believes you. I seem to get a great clean photo regardless of a gory backside. If you don't take the picture, it's just more internet hot air.

I shot three more this morning including this shotgun double.

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a276/pullnshoot25/the%20hunting%20photos/100_0836.jpg

The middle one turned out to be pregnant with 5 early stage fetuses so I put them in rubbing alcohol and gave them to my biology instructor to display in the specimen cabinet. Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail were taken with a Sheridan C9 in a dying orange grove (soon to be homes) in Temecula close to the Wilson Creek Winery in the early morning.

Alright...since we aint just limited to coyotes....here's my contribution....

http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f115/metalhead357/o7hunting0232.jpg

Took this guy with Rem PSP 7.62x39......bullet took a very wierd angle. At first I thought I gut shot him as he was running uphill away from me and was in mid jump-- bullet entered RIGHT REAR about 2 inches forward of his back leg and about 4 inches from below his spine. Bullet did wonders as you can see; bullet litterally traveld TO and then UP the spine and started to exit about 4 inches on the deer's left side..broke through the front shoulder bone up there too but lodged just below the skin...bullet still about 85% still intact just under the hide...........

My little bucky last year, ~280 yards with a .300 moving with a doe in some brush across a field. Thought I lost him at first but after 5 minutes of looking around I found a blood trail about 2" thick leading right to him. He was down only about 20 feet in some taller grass.

http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/10/buckyqt7.jpg

Also took a head shot on a doe that walked up to me on the edge of a field.. The doe was heading right for me about 75 yards off and I was down prone. I must have pulled a little and blew the shot but she moved out a bit stopped and turned to give me a shoulder shot and went down.

Looking for some tree cam photos brb... you guys will love it

Crazyhorse, is that not baiting.....

Game feeders are legal in OK not sure about out here. Now if I could just figure out how to keep all the other game away from them... Two years ago I was up in a blind watching a field with a feeder on a far edge. I could see a doe in the brush. All of a sudden a flock of around 75 turkeys moves in and sits under the feeder and scares the doe off. About 5 minutes later the feeder goes off and all the corn is gone in minutes....

I still haven't managed to shoot a deer at a feeder, they seem to always move to them at night, but they do keep the deer in the area.

Edit: And make them nice and fat.

First yote shot 223 white box winchester 45gr. hp 125 yards. First shot hit right in the side, with a dime size exit wound. It started its death spin and I put another one in it. Could not tell where it hit but it sure stopped the spinning. With closer inspection both the eyes were bugged out. I guess the second one went in the head somewhere. Now I am hooked!

As long as you're not in condor zone, those would be fine. I've used everything from 125 sp's to 175 smk's on coyotes. Expect messed up hide on the offside.

emc002
10-08-2008, 9:34 PM
Are you kidding?

Not at all. I kill coyotes as varmint control to protect livestock, pets & children. Pretty much the same reason I kill ground squirrels & skunks. I leave them for the turkey vultures, other coyotes, etc. to eat. Racoons, OTOH, I usually skin them and keep the pelts, but the meat goes to the carrion eaters. Coyote pelts are nasty, mangy, flea ridden things. I've seen good pelts down in Bakersfield area, but they're worthless here.

Oh, and as to .308? It'll work but it's MAJOR overkill and too expensive to boot. Thankfully I'm in a non-condor range too!

I haven't been able to find a straight answer for this, I get some yes and some no's. Do you need a hunting liscence to hunt coyote?

Most definetley yes.
Luckily, you don't need any other tags or stamps like you do for nearly everything else.

I was in South Texas last week and got what is probably the shot of my lifetime on a Yote - So the scenario is this:
I'm driving around on a ranger with the guide (a former Marine Sniper with time served in Iraq) and we see a Coyote running across a Sendaro, he stops to check us out and we realize we have no rangefinder - the guide calls the distance at 550, and I say it's 475 - I'm shooting a stock Rem 700 with a VX1 Leupold 3-12X in .300WSM - no bipod, no rest, no sand bags...so I brace off the handle on the passenger side rollbar on the ranger, and squeeze at what I recall is the hold-over at 475yrds - BANG- then a huge WHOO-YAA from the guide (who was on the Bino's) When I scan again through the scope I see the sideways flip of the tail on the ground...DRT - DEAD RIGHT THERE - LOVE IT.
We had a GPS, so we set the markers and drove up to see the Yote - it was 465yards, the shot was just back in the gut, maybe 4 inches to the right of where I would have wanted it. But, with a .300WSM, it don't make much of a difference, thats a dead doggy.
I gotta say it was a great feeling to take the estimation on the range, the hold over and then squeeze that shot and see the hit...not too many things feel better.

My brother and a friend were shooting the 100-300 yard PDs and I was looking further out when this little yearling ***** stepped out to watch. Thinking she was safe at long range, she got careless and I took her out with my 6.5x284 using the 142 grain SMKs at 732 yards.

From the start of the thread, whoever said pheasant doesn't taste good is not preparing it properly. Pheasant is awesome! My friend's family makes it with a sour german gravy, over mashed potatoes. Probably my favorite food on the planet, no BS. Anyone have some birds they want to get rid of? I'll trade you for some store bought tukey or chicken or or or......... :thumbsup:

They are pretty much in abundance near us... This is one of a pack that was hanging around in my front yard for weeks, coming up close trying to lure my dog out to play.

But funny thing when I dropped him the rest steered clear for a few months (at least at daylight)

They are pretty good size here... This was not one of the bigger ones but it was the lucky one!! :)

Like some other posters said the pelt is pretty skanky... This coyote smelled like pi*s and looked alot worse that it does in these pictures,

My buddy and I am planning a clean up soon.

This one was taken with my grand fathers carried back from Germany WWII Mauser.

In the 50's he scoped and sporterized it. It's a really nice shooter but too powerful for coyotes.

This guy was dropped at about 100 yrds. I hit with 1 shot a little further back than I wanted to, but it was on the fast walk and it was my 4th round EVER through the rifle.
It jumped back up and walked 2 steps and dropped it like it was hot! :D

How does one find some BLM land to hunt on? When you say national forest, does that mean I can go off San Francisquito Highway (if you live in Santa clarita or antelope valley, you should know where I mean) and go hunt some yotes? San Francisquito runs through Los Angeles National Forest.

Depends on what condition it is in after wards. If you shoot them in the summer the pelts are pretty thin and pitiful a nice winter coat you can get $120 for if it is tanned correctly and I sell the skulls for between $15-35 depending on the size and condition of the teeth.

I agree with the management of coyotes. I have been around a local ranch for around 5 years and most of my school activities occurred there too. When you start losing baby calves and goats, etc, it makes you want to camo up and lay in the pasture when the coyotes come to feed. I usually kept the pelts and decorated them with beads and leather straps and gave them away to family and friends.

Most the NF and almost all BLM land is open to coyote and jackrabbit year round no limit here in CA. Call the local BLM office or Forest ranger station and make sure it is not a closed area as there are some areas closed to hunting. NOTE: it is illegal to hunt withing 150 yards of a road, structure or campground, if you posess a loaded firearm in the prohibited area it is considered hunting. Do not mess with these rules if caught they will cite you and confiscate your guns. Lots of public land in CA with yotes and rabbits just have to call the appropriate authority and invest in a few maps. Mountain Lions are illegal to hunt in CA.

Pardon my ignorance, but i'm a noob. What does NF and BLM stand for?

I know this is a "Coyote Hunting Pics" thread, but I have a video to show.

A Deer and Turkey guide that leases a few acres of land asked me to help thin his coyote numbers. His exact words, "now is the time" He is getting ready for the upcoming season(s) and asked me to call coyote.

This lil one should have been a DRT, but it was just too close. Wished I had a shotgun instead of my rifle.

Called in 4 coyotes on saturday and seen a total of 6. 3 were called in the morning and 1 in the evening I shot at 2 and missed. One I should not have shot at since I was standing and not steady and the other I gave a courtesy shot at 300 yards since the yote would not come any closer. We were busted.

YOU were busted, he stopped at 200yds when I"whoofed" at him , he stopped broadside at 200yds and i got to see your miss on my dog on "HD"

p.s. lets go again

Not that one. that one was a beautiful shot I just not should have tried since I was standing with no rest. The afternoon dog busted us out at 300 yards. The one you failed to see that was jumping over bushes at full speed to come and get dinner.

Anytime you are ready lets go.

Mwunsch bagged another one this weekend that I called in. We called in 2 total and bagged a very small one at 7 yards. We would not have shot her if she was not charging us. I will post pics tomorrow.

professioncoyote hunter- what call do you use? if you don't mind saying or reccomending a few.

professionalcoyotehunter
08-14-2009, 5:19 PM
I mainly use a Circe Raspy Coaxer it is one of my favorites. But I have close to 40 different calls to chose from. I have one for every situation like brushy, windy, wide open, close contact, long range, etc.

I don't use electronic calls at all. I have no use for them since I have such good success using mouth calls. i have tried them and prefer to call myself since IMHO I sound much better than a recording.

My first song dog. Called it in with a handcall and shot it like 15 feet infront of me with a mossy 640 KS 22mag shooting cci maxi mag 40 gr hp. This gun was the first one I fired when i was about 7 years old. Dad gave it to me and it wouldn't shoot good no matter what ammo etc. Finaly I re-crowned it and presto its a submoa tack driver with remington 40 grain hp. Useing a 4.5-14x40 AO mueller APV on offset BKL rings.

Im just curious since you obviously dont eat yotes, what do you do with the dead bodies?

stockranger
08-22-2009, 1:40 AM
I hunt coyote mostly in areas I hunt rabbit. Each coyote can eat 150 rabbit a year.Any serious rabbit hunter should be a serious coyote hunter too. I kill all i can, they also like to attack gundogs. I leave them lay where I shoot them most of the time. If they are really nice with good fur like the bottom one i posted I will skin it and keep the pelt just for the heck of it. Lots of people sell the furs you can get like 10 bucks for them but its a ton of work. Other then that I slice open the belly to get the smell out to anything in the area. Come back in a few days and there isn't much left.The birds and scavengers don't let it go to waste. After a year or two you can come back and look for the skull. Just remember THE ONLY GOOD COYOTE IS A DEAD ONE! I also purposely hunt them in the spring if its a rabbit area. Without both parents all the pups in the den starve to death. If i don't hunt rabbit in the area I only kill them in the fall.

I bet PETA loves me :D

I like your style stockranger. I've had family and friends whose livestock were plagued by coyotes. I can't imagine they've got a single redeeming quality other than a passable pelt and even then only on occasion. Rather have a bobcat pelt anyway, or a rabbit for that matter.

LesGrossman41510

stockranger
08-22-2009, 1:07 PM
plus one should remember there are sooooo many coyote way more then there would be in a natural state. They used to have competition with wolves and grizzley bear for food keeping numbers in check. Wolves won't let coyote share their territory.

also trash and peoples pets are really pumping up their populations in city areas. i mostly hunt right by the city and shoot trash and pet eating coyote. If you took away the trash many would starve to death.

hunters released coyote in the east they are not native.

Keeping their numbers in check is important that is why its open season all year in most every state with no limits. Infact lots of states shoot them from helicoptors is my understanding. Its not just in alaska! I hear they even do it once a year in CA.

Heres a yote I shot out near Niland, he was in the middle of the field about 700 yards out. He knew I was watching him and when I would drive around to the other side of the field, he would go the opposite way staying just out of range (except I had a 7mm mag with me that day). It split him down the middle.

This other one was eating a rabbit when I neck shot him, made him lose his lunch.

Nice shot Dominic, the fields out there can make for some great long distance shots, you just have to be very careful about the shooting background and proximity to homes.

I have taken many a Dove, quail and Pheasant from the fields out there, but never went yote hunting there.

Yeah, we tell the wifes, girlfriends, in-laws and the like that we are doing a service, it's about balance and control and farmer Brown's livestock, yadda, yadda, yadda. That is all a bunch of horse crap but it keeps the sheeple smiling somewhat, the reality of it is we like to kill stuff, we enjoy it, period. That was one of the standard running jokes in the varmint club that I ran with for years, "we practice catch and release". You feed that line to your typical dim bulb PETA member and they perk right up and go "oh, well that's ok then!" all smiling and happy, then they think about it for a few and go "Hey!?!?!?!, how do you do that". The look on their liberal face when they realize that you are in fact smokin' fury little creatures and screwing with their head at the same time is priceless indeed. :43::43:

Its a nice off season thing to do. Increase the population of game birds while doing the ranchers a favor while you are at it.

Go anywhere between Niland and Calipatria, take hiway 115 and find a ditch or canal with weeds for cover and I can almost gaurantee theres a coyote hiding in it.
