  1. calling all dogs

    This time of year I'm also 30-35 mins on a set. Its coyote time. Fox at night are my priority before that and my sets are 15 mins then move. Right now I enjoy dawn and dusk, nothing like a yote coming in without having to rely on lights. This time of year its easier to get them to move with some daylight....either looking for love or being territorial. Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. What is your price "loaded" and what does that include? Is the cuddy large enough for a porta potty? Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I've not lost a fox yet and fur damage is minimal. I like the 22 mag for fox as well but the 17 wsm will reach out farther with more ft lb energy. I like it. Have only shot one coyote with it and he was at 40 yards and down he went. I doubt it would be lethal on a yote over 100 yards or if so you'd be looking for it for a while. Mine is a Savage Bmag with bull barrel and Boyds thumbhole stock. Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Nice gun, the 22-250 is a killing machine. Not fur friendly at all on fox, fist size exits or bigger. I use the same caliber once fox season ends for yotes, prior to that I use a 17 WSM. I'm a fox guy first. All my fur gets put up. Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Yeah, wind looks suspect Sat night. Getting snow down here tonight in Allegany cty...after the melt I'd prefer a couple inches. Beats mud. Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I've never seen where a coyote has fed on a fox. I've had more than a few fox in my traps ripped into by yotes, but they never fed on them. I have a spot on my property where my carcasses go after skinning and the yotes pay no attention to fox. A fox is probably 7lbs skinned, I can put a 25 lb beaver carcass next to that pile and its gone the next day. My lab shows the same interest in carcasses. Pay attention to your dogs, they can teach you alot about canine behavior. Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I like my 17 wsm or a 22 mag for fox, I'm a trapper and value my pelts although you can do wonders with needle and thread. Once end of Jan comes I turn away from fox and strickly hunt yotes using a 22-250 which rips fox up. Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Agreed. Setup is critical. Populations, and plenty of permissions are important as well. You can have the best gear but if you don't the animals, the spots to hunt, and the correct set-up you may as well stay home. Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Another vote for Foxpro here. I like the Fusion with the T1000 remote. Lots of nice features. Buy from allpredatorcalls.com and you get it loaded with 100 calls of your choice. Foxpro support is 2nd to none also. Nice thing with the foxpro stuff is so many guys use them and when they share their calling sequence you can set up the same as you'll likely have the same sounds. I also own an Icotec 500 thats a decent call for the price...very dependable remote. But after getting the fusion thats all I use. Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Did you make the check in? I did not, had some unexpected guests stop over to take in the game. How many teams checked in? I see the winner had a ton of greys and some reds and a yote. Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    At least you got out. I missed 4 days work this week with the flu....my contest time was on the couch....too old to tempt a relapse. Maybe make up for it in the Foxpro (bark at the moon) event end of the month. See ya tomorrow. Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Doing the slam this weekend but had the flu all week so not looking good right now for much hunting in this cold. But I'll show Sunday at check in and hope for door prizes. Cheap beer and a couple tv's in the bar to watch the game. Sent from my LGL62VL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
