Re: Coyotes around Phoenix?

I spent the last 5 days on the Arizona strip working on some guns in the sun and warm temps and I had coyotes barking and howling at me each night despite firing over 500 rounds throughout the trip! They seemed to be pissed I was camped in their favorite hunting ground or something. One night, I was cleaning a gun on the end of my tailgate and had a coyote bark at me from probably less than 200 yards away. They seemed pretty brave down there.

I would have probably tried to kill a few but I didn't have a license for Arizona. You can buy a 3 day license for $65 if I remember correctly for a non-resident. If you want a season license, you have to buy a full pop license like you would for deer or any big game. Arizona needs to change that. Coyotes are not supposed to be protected animals for crying out loud.

Re: Coyotes around Phoenix?

I have lived in and hunted around Phoenix & AZ most of my life. It's pretty tough to find an uneducated coyote close to Phoenix, except for those that live in town and have never been shot at. Phoenix has over 3 Million people, so you can imagine the kind of hunting pressure put on coyotes that live within easy driving distance. All big game, and some small game animals are draw only hunts in AZ, so coyotes become the only game in town for those of us who don't get drawn year after year. Plan on driving out of Phx at least 1-2 hours before turning off-road. There are several varmint clubs in the Phx area, so try contacting a club member in Phx area and they may point you in the right direction.

Re: Coyotes around Phoenix?

While were just killing time here, why don't you eplain how you use that reloading stand. Do you C-clamp it to something or does it bolt to something?
