Title: I think I have lost my Coyote Juju
Post by: D45/70 on December 12, 2017, 03:41:04 PM
>:( Six or seven years ago the boy and I would average 100 coyotes a fur season and plenty in the off season.
NOW !!!

 Last year we sold less then half that and that was a GOOD year for us and HUNTED HARD!

This year started  fabuless . with 12 on one trip.

Then little to nothing since.

I missed 3 the last trip.

I'm not sure what to do.

Very early this spring or as bear calls it WINTER!

We couldn't call in $hit, 'cept for a fat Mule deer doe  and that took the Sububern to bag it.

Did Obama send out Peta to educate all the coyotes in MT?

Maybe gave them Protective Kevlar jackets?

I just don't feel as confident out in the field as I once did.

We could walk out and KNOW there was coyotes and just where they would come from not so anymore.

It's not that I'm going to quit trying , but come on coyotes throw me a Bone...

 :shock: That sure sounds like much different than how it usually goes for you fellas, D! Did you have a big die off? West Nile and some other stuff has killed off a lot of game here, including deer.

Die off was on deer and antelope 5 years ago , blue tongue .
 Kinda recovered.
 The rabbit population seams to be at very high levels.
Mice and voles look normal, lots of game birds as well.
All that make for more coyotes but there not hungry .
I think the dog population is in very good shape.
 There just not responding well.
Higher presser from other hunters, more then normal extra warm weather
are a bigger factor.
Going to have to mix thins up and find a winning combo . 
:crazy2

Yeah on that, D! Do you think so many folks are doing a lot of bad calling and just educating the dogs?

That's the same problem here, D. What's a fella going to do?maybe get some new calls that aren't getting much use yet?
