Well i went out this past tuesday (no school) and drove around the country looking for what i concluded were spots where coyotes were. the day was about 40 degrees and a light snow/rain at times. the day started out good i found some spots to set up and called for about half and hour then moved on to another spot to call. later on in the day the wind picked up (50+ mph) and the rain/snow picked up more often. Well it was fun but i learned some things that should have been common sense, wear more clothes or pack more, don't let calls freeze up, and scout around for coyotes (still have yet to see or hear anything that they exist). I thought this wouldn't be that hard to get into, turns out it's easy to get into, but having success is tough stuff. I plan to go and try to head out this weekend again.
I have a question though, I always see land that might be good for coyotes, and i see a sigh that says no hunting and such, how do i find or contact that landowner? around here people will have a spot of land and like 20 miles away from it. another thing is is a cultivated field (one that has just had crops harvested good to sit by for hunting or should i steer away from those. the basic layout of the land is crop field, little grove of trees, fence, then another field and the same thing, are those groves of trees good spots to call, and what about public hunting land?
Thanks for the help
