Re: Baiting coyotes

i use rib cages, meat scraps and dog food i use a good bunch to get them coming and once they are coming i will make a meatsicle wich is dog fod, bones and meat scrapes in a five gallon bucket then fill with water and let freez. at my bait they will show up when ever they want. i have had pics of them in the midle of day and all hours of the night. last year i had three that would come in together. my bait was 70 yards from the bait. here are a couple pics from last years.

Re: Baiting coyotes

I've been baiting yotes for a few years now with some success. The best being a bait behind my house with a motion sensor on it that wakes me up when something is on the bait, (you should try this, your wife will LOVE it!!!)

I think your distance is good, we tried baits at 100- 150 yards and the little @#$%@$# would wind us. When we moved out to 300 yards we would see them crossing the road at 200 yards with their noses up. I find here in Maine deer works best and beaver caracas work great too. If you are hunting in the cold you can freeze bait in water in a 5gal bucket, they cant drag it off and the bird damage will be down a bit, friggen birds eat a lot!. Last year we tried plowing our bait into a snowbank, that worked good too, again the dogs have to work for the bait and cant drag it off into the bushes, keeps them in front of you longer.

Let me know how you do, I like to hear about people putting coyotes through obedience training.... Lay down!!!! Stay..... Good boy....

Re: Baiting coyotes

Daylight season is year round. Night hunting is from mid December to July i think. Have to look at the law book but that gives you an idea.

Re: Baiting coyotes

+1 on the night vision, they are way calmer in the dark. .243 with Raptor NV scope has been having fun this season, we go back and check our gut piles after we got a deer this season. We had a good bait made out of 150lbs of beef tallow and trim we got from a beef we butchered, they really seemed to love that fat in the wintertime when they need energy. We like to cover our baits with brush, helps keep the birds off for awhile at least so the dogs can find it by smell. Have heard of the meatsicle idea before, seems like you guys have had good luck, will have to try that!
