Re: Summer hunting

If you're ADC i can see a guy buying a dog just to hunt coyotes during the summer. If you're not, then it's a waste of food because come fall, a dog is to much. They won't come into a bigger animal expecially pups, which is 70% of what's out there in the fall. That's like going to playground with a bully there, who would want to deal with that, unless you're the bully. Winter doesn't help draw in coyotes with a dog either. The only time of year that a dog is useful is to kill adult coyotes who are territorial due to dens or pups.

I agree with the bugs and heat, it just plain sucks. Then you have the heat, a coyote isn't going to be running around in 90+ degrees, they're smarter then that, they head for the shade. So you're left with mornings and evenings.

Fur sucks, so no resale on that, you're basically doing it for your own good.

Re: Summer hunting

You know what guy, Maybe I just like dogs. My wife & I have 3 Catahoula Curs that go everywhere and do everything with us. They are expensive and damn well worth it. Don't get the bully thing either. Pull your head out & get the chip off your shoulder. Oh, by the way. I do a little bear hunting with them as well.

Re: Summer hunting

Catahoula, hope you can retire in Bozeman some day. It's absolutely beautiful down there. As for the dogs I have several friends that use them year round. I understand why they would be more effective in the spring because of territorial behaviors, but I'm not positive they scare off everything in the fall and winter. However, I don't hunt coyotes over dogs so I'm no expert. However, I do kill the heck out of them year' round so I'm not clueless either.

Re: Summer hunting

Im not saying that dogs dont work. Im saying dont work well on pups during the spring summer and fall on pups. Yes a dog will work wonders on adult coyotes during those time. But just to buy a dog to hunt coyotes during the summer is stupid. I hate pushing a dog on a guy who isnt going to use it to its full potential. Little background i run curs also. Coyotes even adult coyotes will shy away from large agressive dogs. This is what im gettiing at with the bully bit.

Re: Summer hunting

Bowfisher, I pretty much only hunt coyotes in the summer when a rancher calls up and requests it. Got to keep the land owners happy so I can get after critters the rest of the year on their land. I don't think I've ever shot a coyote on public land during the summer. I may have when I was young, but I sure can't recall doing so.

Guy has to protect his hunting ground, that's a fact. I'm sure it makes you cringe a little when you have to take out summer yotes with fur prices getting good again. Not to mention, y'all got really nice yotes out there!
