well from what i understand it doesnt take much of a rifle. are you going for pelts? or just to get the Varmints out of an off of your land?

there is a guy here i went to school with attends a hunt every year. he uses an SKS. ive heard some just a 22WMR. if i go im taking my 6mm Rem.

dont want overpenetration or explosive results if going for pelts now do we? ;D

I don't know about around where your at but here we use some meat with a smell and a red light on, the red light you use at night to light up the ambush zone, and a little tape recorder with a crying baby rabbit

Here in Maine, we can hunt coyotes year round. From Jan 1 to Apr 30 you can get a permit to hunt them at night (as long as you have a predator call).

Most people I know hunt with a call. I haven't been out for coyotes since the winter before my son was born. I used to set up overlooking a deer that had died out on the ice and wait for the coyotes to come up to it. I used a Mini-14 (which I've since sold).

I trapped back in high school but never caught a coyote. They're pretty smart and get trap shy easily.

i knew a sick twisted soul who sais he use to put a shock collar on a rabbit. chain it or tie it too the ground an sit in the back of his truck zappin it till the coyotes came an hed plug em.

ive seen them red lights that attach to the scope in cabellas mags. is that what you use?

This doesn't have to be limited to hunting and shooting. Outdoor interests such as fishing and camping, etc are cool.

I think I speak for the majority when I say this should stay out of the gutter and also don't use it as a soap box. Thanks.

No you use the red light to light up the area you put the meat or kill to draw them in, the light for some unkown reason helps to attract them and help you see when they have went for the decoy.
The trapped or tied up rabbit would work to, even if you just tied it up good and left it to flip out on it's own with a little tape recorder or predator call

I've got a ton of pics from various canoeing trips I have taken with my son. The shortest was 3 days, the longest 8. Check out our photo album if you like that kind of stuff.

My son and I are headed back up North on May 8th to canoe the whole Allagash Wilderness Waterway and also 15 miles on the St. John River. All told it'll be around 110 miles. We're going to take 12 days to do it. We may have to camp an extra day or two at the beginning if the ice isn't out on one of the big lakes we have to cross at the start. The ice goes out anywhere from May 1 to May 10. It'll be chilly but we won't have to deal with the flies unless it's an early and hot spring.

Why don't you take the pistol grip off of yours and we can do some bird hunting.
