Hunting a spot down in monroe. Rabbit heaven. Fresh Coyote tracks, scat, pee, you name. I have hunted morning. Nothing. Evening nothing. I am a rookie but seeing sign like this is pretty cool. So I have read night is better so later on I will give it a shot.
Not his past snow but the one before. The coyotes got 2 rabbits then took a big dump right in the middle of the two track. Man these prints are good size. I am just hoping for some luck. Do you have a recommend any calls for green horns. I bought one at gander. Plastic deal. Rotate it and it does like 4 different sounds. I am new to the sport and Just can't by an electric call at this time. Well good luck to everyone. Just looking to talk.

Good Luck Teach!!

Let us know how it goes.
nothing, put out some fresh bait, squirrel stew. I will head back later to see if anything has shown up yet. i am thinking about getting some trailtimers to see when he comes 5threw there. i always seem to miss him.
went for a ride today to check some of our hot spots not even one track. i was pretty bumed out going down to clio area to see what is happening down there .

I set up in a woodlot near Clio tonight. No luck, but I have seen plenty of sign in the area.
went out saturday night and set four sets for coyote and then set-up one spot to call from. didnt see a single track other than bunny tracks.
nothing in traps sunday morning nothing came to the call.

sunday night thought I might bust a coyote hunting the cedar swamp for deer or bunnies but nothing came to the call. sat there for about an hour and a half without using my mouth call just to see if I could catch one hunting on his own agenda but no luck.
had a lot of fun just being out in the woods though.

I am new to Coyote hunting and live close to you. If you would not mind maybe I could buddy up with sometime. I could use a little mentoring I think.
I live in whitecloud in newaygo co. which is about an hour and a half away from saranac.
I am no expert on hunting coyote but I managed to call in one and connect on it with a 22-250 and got a full body mount done of it . been hooked on predator hunting ever since, its like an addiction.
I have seen five more on one hunt but had no chance for a shot.
anytime you want to plan a hunt I am all for it.
I do have permission to hunt a pretty good sized farm in northern kent county where I have seen many red fox while deer hunting.
also if your interested in red fox, there is a very good article written in the latest issue of fur-fish-and game that sheds alot of tactics on how to hunt reds. best fox hunting article I ever read.
I actually just started this year, and picked up a 22- 250 as well. I have friends around newaygo and spent some time around bridgeton and white cloud. have family in whitecloud as well.

We should hook up some time.
cool I might make arrangements to hunt the farm this weekend for red fox saturday morning to get out around there around 5:00 am to call until its daylight and then try the old spot and stalk.
let me know if you wanna go.
