Chas1, I have a correction. the only thing we can use a centerfire on is woodchucks on either private or federal land with these restrictions: any weight bullets from .22 to .25 caliber, .25 caliber or larger 100 gn. bullets or less. At least the lat time that I checked. I can see the point of notbeing able to use a c-fire in such a densely populated state, but we should at least be able to use them on private land with the exception that you are shooting from a tree stand. That sounds fair to me.

Re: East Coast Coyote Hunting

Ouch...the whole state. Well it's been about 28 years since I've been to the western part of Jersey...out past I think they're called the maketchum mountains...I don't know it's been a long time but, I guess things have built up over those years. Sounds like the state's worried about bigger more powerful rounds straying or something.

Re: East Coast Coyote Hunting

Some guys get a fair number of yotes with a shotgun...........I am not one of them!....LoL..... Most yotes I get are 100 to 300 yds away. Seems like most of the time (where I live) they are very near my downwind by the time they get into the 100 yd marker. They also seem to really notice movement at about that same distance. Getting them close enough for shotgun is pretty rare where I hunt.

If there are alot of trees and woods where you are going, your calling sound won't travel as far as you probably think it will. Hills and trees/brush really muffle the sound from a distance.

Sounds like you've got your work cut out for you, being limited to Shotguns.

Good luck.

Re: East Coast Coyote Hunting

@Sbruce,

When I first started out in 2000, the very first night, I had 7 pairs of eyes, but none would come in. I now hunt a strip of land that is about 100 yards wide with a road on one side, and a field on the other. There is a huge swamp on hte end of the strip and that is where I hear them. Last night they definately heard me because of the responses at the end of each call set.
I think that if I use the Hevi-Shot #T, that should extend my range, and also give me more energy or "knockdown" as it is commonly referred.
I am going to switch to using a tree stand as well as maybe throwing some old venison around. I figure if I change tactics, I might be able to get a shot.
Needless to say, I could make a 100 to 300 yard shot with the 223 or 06.

Re: East Coast Coyote Hunting

@Sbruce

Most shotgun kills that I hear of are when guys are doing deer drives or small game hunting. I know that I have to get them in to at least 50 yards using #T Hevi Shot, 3.5" mag.
I do not have that many trees where I am at even though it is wooded, and I am on top of a ridge. I can even get up in the climbing tree stand. I know of a guy that is rather successful that way using the bow. My nature leads me to enhance and change my strategies in order to be successful, so I am confident that I will at least get a sighting! LOL!
I am rather dissatisfied with the way this state handles its laws. Most other states that I know of have a limitless season on them, with very little restrictions. We can't even bait!
Looks like we have to move LOL!

Re: East Coast Coyote Hunting

Yea, it sounds alot different than here in Wyoming. Out here, people can shoot them with any type of gun. They can be shot from choppers and airplanes. They can be run with dogs, trapped, snared, poisoned, baited, denned, run down with Snomobiles, ATV's, and Motocross bikes. There is also no season or limit or liscence to buy. Some counties even offer bounties for their scalps. Other counties pay a small group of people to get yotes full time year round.

I only call and shoot, but some of the guys that get paid to kill yotes use alot of the above mentioned tactics.

You mentioned the .223 or '06, can you use rifles during the daytime??

Yes, sounds like you live in a non-socialist state quite unlike the one I currently reside in. LOL! We can use rifles if we do not get caught LOL! It is illegal. Shotgun and muzzleloader, or bow during the day, shotgun only at night.
