    I agree about the gun season timing. That is when I will put the pressure on as well. I have just a few places that are okay to hunt until gun season is over…These two are foxhounds out of Smokin Booney kennels. They produce a lot of top notch coyote hounds with good noses and speed. I would have to get the papers out to get in more detail than that.
    What do you run? How many hounds are you feeding?

    Sorry folks, I didn’t mean to stir up a hornets nest here, just wanted to share my coyote hunt. For those that care and even those that dont…I do it legal with my hounds. That 4 miles is what my Garmin Alpha told me they covered(the alpha is awesome by the way). That is a pretty short race generally speaking from my experience which is why I mentioned it and am proud of my hounds. I actually had the landowner with me so there is no way you can pin trespassing or not having permission here…I love this sport and I do enjoy watching and listening to my hounds from the time I free cast them into a section, to how they heat up a cold track, to when they jump their coyote and of course the race. If a coyote has endurance or finds his way to a brush pile, tube, or hole…that’s home base and we gather up the dogs and go hunt for another. If the hounds are able to track it, run it down and catch it…that’s the sport and we call that hunting.

    The cattle farmers I work with enjoy what I do because it helps keep the coyotes in check and their calves off the menu. Most land owners enjoy the fact that we dont use guns and readily grant me permission. Got some more permission today actually. Everyone is enabled to have an opinion and you also have a choice not to read it. I just thought this was a predator/varmint hunting forum. I’m a predator hunter!

    Best to remain quiet and to be thought of as a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    good luck this season

    PICTURE REMOVED SITE RULE VIOLATION

    Looks awesome — I wish I could watch this all day 🙄 Big difference from a bow hunter making a bad shot — which is NOT intended to running an a predator animal against another oneis intended — bad comparison….I dont get it dog fights are illegal, so what is this?

    Awesome photo of hard working dogs…hope you have copy right permission to post it.

    I love hunting coyotes as much as anyone, I choose to call them. However I have to be honest reading this does nothing but make me mad. I know you are going to argue it and that is fine cause obvisouly you like what you do. However 1st off we know you were not on land you had permission for, for all 4 miles of it (even though you will say different). 2nd I think that using dogs to run coyotes should be illegal. All it basically is a dog fight, which is illegal in any other arena. I have watched guys with dogs get the coyotes running for miles and miles, then they turn the kill dogs lose when the coyotes can hardly stand up —– sporting…….. In one of the many the cases that I have seen they were grayhounds and they run then down after the coyotes are tired and tear them apart — absolutely disgusting and in my opinion should be outlawed…..defend it as you wish but I hate seeing it and hearing about it.

    I don’t need to defend it. My method is legal and I had permission for more land in that area than what we were on.

    You have a right to an opinion and the right to voice. Have a great weekend. See you on the gravel!

    Do you have a picture of it?

    I do, but have forgotten my id and password for the website that I store pictures on in order to post them on here. I could start over I suppose.
    I wish it was easier to post a photo on these forums…simply uploading it would be nice.

    I may have some time tonight to mess around with it tonight and see if I can post one…good looking coyote

    Im thinking that getting it tanned and or a rug made might be the best way to go. My daughter wants to hang it in her room.

    what about a body mount…I’ve seen a few coyote mounts and the head/face is always the tricky part…anybody know of a taxidermist that has done a few coyotes with good results.

    Again, thanks for the responses

    Lots of legal ways to run coyotes and some that aren’t legal.
    Some methods get the general public more upset than others.
    The group I started running with don’t even carry guns. I’m probably the only guy with guns in the truck although I haven’t used them in this group. The hounds do all the work and I enjoy watching the chase and directing traffic. Hauling around a couple of fast, hot nosed hounds in the dog box is like carrying an AR for a coyote.
    See the coyote, cut the dogs, and start the timer. It’s only a matter of time.
    Good luck

    nice work!!!
    We got one yesterday. Had one hole up in a culvert and one in a pile of concrete slabs.
    Now that the snow has been around for a while, the coyotes have walked on everything and it’s a bit more difficult for the dogs.
    Just takes longer is all.

    Get after them.

    Looks like you found someone getting their hound ready for hide season. I coon hunt as well, the deer dont seem to mind at all and most coon dogs I hunt with never run deer, they just run right on by.
    Good looking bucks.
    what area are you in….curious whom the coon hunter might be.

    thanks guys, i do not fish for anything specific. i like to fish for walleye/panfish/sometimes bass but i dont do very much catfishing.

    we have been having a lot of luck shore fishing out at big creek lately…. catching white bass, bluegill, and walleye

    What part of the lake are you fishing. I drove out there on my motorcycle for a ride saturday morning and checked out that newer fishing dock. Only a couple folks on it and didnt see anyone pull anything up.
    I was thinking of taking my daughter out for a quick trip, so i figured I would ask. I have not fished it yet this year so I dont know where its hot or where they are catching what.
