Title: Is Minus 45* to cold to call ?
Post by: D45/70 on February 09, 2018, 09:17:30 AM
Are we nutz or what? we are Planning a dog trip this weekend. The forecast is light wind but -28* and -45* wind chill.
All the areas schools are closed today because of giant snow fall, buss routes are a mess.
It's about 100 miles one way all gravel .
Are we wasting our time ? We have called successfully in -37* air temp but it is an extreme way to go. for sure.
It takes the coyotes a LOT longer to respond or come in and there not moving for any food sounds. You have to really PI$$ them of to get them to move.
Anyway I think we will try, if we cant get there we will just have to hunt where we get stopped
:idiot2 :crazy2 :uglystupid2

 :shock: Yeah, what MO says! I wouldn't even stick my nose out the door! That isn't just cold, that's dangerous cold!

Besides, how can you call when your words freeze and fall to the ground?  :wink:

This old Injun says stay in teepee close to the fire.

Ok we're back.
It was cold and we had to use snowshoes but the sun was out and we saw coyotes on every set.
Problem was none of them wanted to fight.
They would just appear on a rise sit down listen to our trash talk then simply walk away to do what ever coyotes do when there not coming in to be shot.

It was a little COLDER then what the forecast called for, kinda.
On the flats it was only -18 but the wind was close to 10 mph. When we dropped in to the river bottoms and big coulees it was from -27 to -35 but the wind was lighter by a lot. At -35 any wind sucks but we had the right stuff on and the sun was out so not as bad as it sounds.

All public lands where we hunt so that is a possibility.
 BUT I think the cold the amount of snow where the biggest factor.
Just did not hit there fight threshold ...
