Hey there fellas, been hunting this year just on the logging roads and fields and only 1 got so far. Seen lots more but no bother. Just wondering if any of you hunt farmers land, how did you start using their land? Just a knock on the door? I'm sure most farmers got enough hunters knocking down their doors.
Also trying to save up for a decent 223 or 22 250 when i got a great 308 sittin in the locker is a pain. Just got new "Coyote loads" for the 12 ga but i don't got too much faith in the distance claimed.

Is it that Dead Coyote shot? Be careful about running afoul of the conservation officers by having shot that's too big for varmint season . . .

It's size B so its good to go. Any experience hunting on farms?
No, but for crow hunting I have gone and just knocked on people's doors when I've seen they had a lot of crows and a back yard big enough to shoot them in safely (200 metres from house). And I've been granted permission more times than I've been told no.

Thanks, I guess I'll just try a farm somewhere, the orange should let them know i'm not a jehova witness or salesman.

Hi most farmers see coyotes as pests and are willing to let you hunt; just ask. Hunt the hedgerows and strips of trees in the hollows between the fields. Goodluck.

The prices now on the Savage Edge cant be beat. Nothing fancy, but a cheap starter rifle.

Was coming home from the hunting show in Sussex and decided to take the back roads (as usual) and right at where the road thru MacGregor Brook hits the road across Mount Middleton there is a big dip just before the stop sign, and right there is the biggest, most handsome coyote I've ever seen, and I've seen more than a couple.
Nice doggie!
I had the T3 Lite with me, but didn't know the area at all. I've never been thru there before. I had no idea if there was a house or village just around the corner or over the knoll or what, so I didn't dare shoot. It killed me to let him go. He wasn't shy at all. I watched him for a good 60 secs. Tried to get some cell phone photos of him but of course he wasn't THAT close and you can't see him in the pix that I took. He was very grey with some striking brown patches, a beautiful varmint indeedy. Had to be between 40 and 45 pounds.
Anyway, that was at 3 p.m. with a blazing sun, and he was in the middle of the road, and he lazily loped away thru a field, not worried about me in the least. Maybe he could tell I was pissing my pants and looking for a place to pee more than anything.
So anyway he ain't shy.
And he's still there.
