Tonight would be a good night to get out on that snow and mouthcall a coyote up to the front of a shotgun loaded with #4 buck. All legal as long as you use a non-elctronic call and do not shine a light on the animal while its alive. The shotgun is the choice for several reasons.....
Same way,just making sure that those that don't,know they have an option. Something else to remember is one's shadow.Believe it or not,but on a moonlit night,your shadow can give you away,on snow.Setting with your back to something or in the shadow of a small cedar or such will hide it. Also owls can be a problem.I've had them almost grab me a couple of times.They are such silent fliers,that by the time you see them,they are right there.Really think those talons could make for a ruined hunt lol.Not to mention when they pull up just in your face,it'll startle the snot out of ya.Sent a buddy of mine ,screaming like a school girl back to the truck one night.Didn't know what was wrong with him till I walked back to the truck.Walked back to where we had been and you could see the wing marks where it had pulled up just short of in his face.Had a hard time convincing him it wasn't the boogey man after him,although he never went with me again lol
I got back about half a mile and mouthcalled and waited and nothing. I did see some cottontails which is really rare around here. They were out on the snow socializing. I guarded them momentarily in case a yote ran up to them. That would have been cool. Ithaca semi-auto mag 12.........I went out this morning and saw 6 yotes about 1000 yds away. THey didnt seem to mind my white jeep and just sat there. One by one the went over the hill. Nothing I could do....

farmnhunter: If you want to avoid feline, you can't use any meat or fish item or scent. Try a piece of black licorish covered by dairy feed, or lucky charms or corn/koolaid (mix 1 qt whole corn with a package of grape koolaid)
