Hello,

I like the outdoors very much. I like to fish, outdoors junkie when I can get the time. I was wondering has anybody did any coyote hunting? I would like to try this one day, the only problem I don't have any land to hunt on and I live in Louisville, KY the city. So if anyone that lives near Louisville, KY and hunts coyotes email me and would love to try this.

As an invasive exotic species, I would not say I love to destroy this species, but the next time a pack are out side my window at Two in the morning, I suspect there will be a few of them that will pass on due to acute lead poisoning. The fish in my pond will take care of the remains. Case closed.

As hunters, we don't seek and destroy.

And as far as exotic, going back to the Lewis and Clark Trail {expedition}
Coyotes and Bobcats were a first discoverd species I believe.

I think I may have also read yotes and dogs wound up being table fare, except for Clark.

Did it years ago up in Nebraska,, use to get 60 bucks a hide for them. Pretty good money and farmers would always give you permission to hunt them.

We've tried countless times to go out there and kill a few but they are really smart. Within the past 2 years DNR has brought in whats called a red timberwolf
They are just as bad or not worse than coyotes. A lot bigger also. What could they have thinking do this crap.:dizzy:

I live in e-town just south of louisville and hunt yotes quite often and 90 percent of farmers are more than accepting of the offer to hunt their coyotes! We will have to wait until deer season passes though, people tend to frown on ya encroaching on their deer woods...... Its is alot of fun and really challenging most of the time, they very seldom stop so you haveta hit them on the run more times than not.. pm me your email and e ca n work somethin out.

We run dogs here too, but not for coyotes people love running deer drives here. Cant say I have participated in it. Im a traditional hunter I'll sit in stand hours and hours on end.

Nothing like lambing season and getting to shoot coyotes.

Back when we were teens in South CA, where our family friend would lamb his sheep, even in a corral area, the coyotes would sneak in and get a new born lamb. So we were welcomed any time to reduce the local population.

Problem is, new corral doesn't exist, sheep are gone, and houses now stand where once was wild grass land and pasture.

Nothing real fancy, just a little .22 and iron sights. Oh, CA F&G also frowns on this practice now. Also, dumb people leave their dog and cat food outside and they wonder why their small puppies and cats are getting eaten or why their small child is bitten while walking a nature trail....go figure.

I have been in on a few night hunts for them due to them messing with peoples farms. The M1a was great for this. Im not a big fan of killing things but having seen a pack of them gang up on young farm animals IMO that was alot worse.


The AR and AK/SKS didn't do a half bad of a job either. lol

Coyotes and foxes in many places are becoming nuisances, similar to feral hogs.

I normally subscribe to your philosophy as well, but when skunks are spraying my dogs; coons are tearing everything up and in my bird feeders; same with squirrels; I will shoot to reduce the population.

To get Coyote you need a Game Call. I have even tied a live Chicken out as Bait. Calling them in with a Caller is a real art form. So I use a electronic caller with a remote. Sitting heavy cover I set up my caller and bait at least 50 yards a way. I like to use a 22 mag or a 223 for coyote.

That depends where one resides. Im in New England and these aint ya daddys yotes. They are up to 28% Canadian timberwolf . Unlike the western coyote who is usually found wandering alone , these critters hunt in packs and are devastating to young deer.

Back when I was in high school and still hunted, we did some coyote hunting.

We mainly did it because the population is bad in the area I grew up, but it was something to do in the late winter when all the other hunting seasons were done.

What we did was to use our CB's and get a hold of other hunters in the area. We would then drive around and look for them in the snow covered fields.

As soon as one was spotted, you would holler at someone else on the CB and get them in on it. Basically trying to surround the coyotes.

You would then drive into the open fields, get within range, and hop out and take a shot.

Pretty red-neck, but it's what we did.

I can remember were I was Reading or the name of a Mixed breed of Coyote and Timber wolf. But the bottom line was they were a real problem and mostly in Canada and New England.

My neighbor is an aging farmer. I will shoot em in his cow pens but that's about ut. I don't have a problem with guys who hunt them at all but I don't eat them, their hides aren't worth much any more and I don't feel like staying up all night waiting.

Now I stick to hunting animals that taste good, look good stuffed or have valuable pelts.

I started last year since I've seen more and more on the properties we bird hunt, and my dad's health is not the greatest so he can't handle long walks or sub 40* temps with his nueropothy.

Called for 2 months before getting my first. Getting done mfk mouth calls for this season.... Starting up again after crops are out.

Rolled this one on a dead sprint at about 40 yards with the MAK90 and irons. Called him in with a estrus call after 5 minutes of calling. Watched him come across a corn stubble field from 3-400 yards out.

Beside the fact you make me jealous as Hell. I have ask about the Rifle with the scope. It looks like it will reach out and touch someone. I am sure the scope costs as much as the Rifle?????

I have used a remote Electronic calls and even backed it up with a live Chicken or Rabbit tied out. But fact is my area has Turkey and wild Hog but not a lot of Coyote.

Yep I am Jealous of your dogs also. Nothing like a good old Hound Dog/dogs. I have never had my own hunting dogs. But Years ago my neighbor had Dogs and we often ran Coon or Deer.

BTW I have a freezer full of Feral Hog. Florida is only second to Texas in Feral Hog population. I actually shoot Hogs 3 blocks from my house. There is a Wildlife Water Shed Reserve that backs up to my neighborhood. Neighbor on that street have a problem with Hogs tearing up their yards. I can pretty much shoot a hog any night I want.

Do you or did you eat the coons

Do you or did you eat the coons

Sorry for the late reply. Yes I have eaten coon. First you must boil it to make it tender. Then BBQ on the grill. Not my favorite food by any means, but I had to try it. The Black community demands coon and pay an average of $ 15.00 to $ 20.00. I would rather sell the coons than eat them. Even at $ 20.00 you can't make a profit selling coons.

Sorry for the late reply...thought I responded but obviously did not! That's my 'spotting rifle' or 'the dog hung up at 150 yds and I'm pulling a headshot' rifle :).

The rifle is a Remington 597 in 22LR. About the only thing left 'stock' is the receiver and 'most' of the trigger group. I added a SS Remington target barrel with custom muzzle brake, Boyd's (Hometown Proud Mitchell, SD) Evolution SS stock in nutmeg finish, BSA Sweet 22 6x18x40 scope (BEST scope for this rifle by far- holds zero like one costing 4x) with a Mueller Sunshade, MCARBO spring kit, Volquartsen Extractor and Hammer with the hammer polished up to 3000 grit, freefloated and 'ghetto' bedded the stock with aluminum tape, additional buttpad from the MAK90's OG furniture, polished the guiderods and bolt up to 2000 grit, and added a Wally World clearance bipod 6-13". All the trigger work has it breaking at about 1.9lbs like a glass rod.

If I do my part, I can put down quarter to nickel sized groups at 50 yards. The scope has adjustable turrets based on bullet weight to 175yds, but it will consistently (for rimfire and ME) reach out to 225yds on a 4x6 steel with CCI ammo. Funny thing is I traded for the 22 with a Toro SRII that I bought as a trim mower for a week while I reringed the BBC Suzuki 2 stroke Toro I've mowed with since 91 when Dad bought it new :).

Here's a picture with the factory stock and the Choate cheek rest from my MAK90 stock. Cheekpiece is meant for an optic and places your eye too far above the rear sight. On the plastic stock it was PERFECT for off hand shooting with the scope.

I recently bought a 3 x 9 x 40 Sweet 22 Scope with parallax adjustment and they are great. However I have it on a very old stock Marlin Model 60. While that gun is a tack driver I am sure your's is more actuate. I am actually thinking of buying an other sweet 22 for my 22 Magnum. I am thinking I can site in the parallax for 22 magnum instead of 22 LR real easy.

IMHO 22 LR is very under rated. I taken several wild hogs with a 22 LR. Of course head shots are the only way to take a Hog with a 22.

Nice Looking 22
I wouldn't brag to much on the groups at 50 yrds I do that with my Ruger 1022 open sites with 30rd clip in and its a plain jane gun

That 22 is Slow what is your FPS I wouldn't want shoot anything on the run be lucky to kill it
I have a Model 7 204 FPS is around 3800 it will group tight at 200 yrds At 200 yrds I can empty the gun on my prairie dog spinning target

22 can be a tack driver. However not all 22 are the same. My Remington 510 single shot rifle from the 1940's will punch a single hole in a target at any distances. As a kid with good eyes, I put a raised rear sight on it and shot 300 yds and over with it. Problem is the firing pin only works half the time now. I have spend more than the guns is worth on gunsmiths trying to fix it. Now only certain Ammo works in it.

My Marlin model 60 is a lot more accurate than my 10/22 which isn't all that bad. Fact is the Marlin model 60 is a cheap rifle sold in all the discount stores. While my 22 mag has more knock down, it isn't any where as accurate as a 22LR. But I have ordered an other sweet 22 3 X 9 scope for the 22mag to see if the scope will make a differences.

Hog and Deer Hunting Season at Cecil Webb Wildlife Management area 65,000 acre preserve has closed for this Year. 68 Deer and 58 hogs were taken this year. The Largest Deer was 148 Lb which is pretty good size for south Florida deer. Most run 65 to 100 pounds.

58 Hogs is Low. Most years more than twice that amount are shot in the Wildlife area. No I didn't go hunting with the Hoard of people At the wildlife management area. I have a few spots I can hunt year round without a Thousand hunters. I do use their Rifle range and was there Monday sighting in a New Scope on a old Gun.

You got to Hunt Hogs, they are very smart animals. However once you find them, it is like shooting Clay targets. If I see fresh hog rooting I bait the area and let them have a buffet for several days. You can actually scare them off at that point. Finally I set up a stand 50 yard down wind and hope for the best. If you get a real clean head kill it doesn't scare off the other hogs and you can keep shooting. I use a suppressor which helps.


For some reason this is the only Picture I could up load today. I have posted these pictures in the Florida forum before.

UP date, I bought a second Sweet 22 Scope for my 22 Mag. Right at $ 50 with shipping. That is Real Cheap. After bore sighting it, I took it to the range. First Shot 200 yard I was right on. I am Shooting the Hornady 30 Gr V-Max Varmint Round which has super Flat trajectory. I have enough Hog meat in my freezer, so I am ready to do some Coyote hunting.

BTW My 10/22 is a Bull Pup conversion with a Suppressor. IMHO for 200 yards and under, nothing beats that Bull Pup rifle. I also have a IWI Tar 21 (+suppressor) which is a 5.56 Bull Pup also. 200 yards and under it is a tack driver also. However that Gun is not a long range and at 300 yards starts to drop off. Truth is any thing I shoot is going to be 200 yards or under, so The Tavor works for me.

There was a time, not so very long ago, a man could drive down Vestal rd and see the remains of coyotes for 2.5 miles.

Hundreds, maybe thousands of these elusive dogs intured the old fashioned way, hanging on the fence.

This was the work of the late great Eddie Weston, varmant control specialist extaordinar.

While not what one would call politically correct, Eddie was the best of the best at talking in the wiliest coyote.

Many a coyote breathed a sigh of relief the day Eddie passed on.

You're right about the attitude the former dept of fish and game, now known as fish and wildlife has on hunting, not just yotes but hunting period.
