    So October is supposed to be the month when yotes are plentiful. Do you guys really get after them in October? I guess I might be missing out but it's hard for me to focus on them during deer season. Guess I better look into it

    October is a great time to be out after coyotes, lots of fresh ears and young of the year venturing out on their own.

    I start sept 1st every yr, Temps start to be cooler in the am and pups have been displaced.
    This yr its so hot I might wait some.
    I try to kill coyotes that if I wait till December to hunt will most likely be killed by deer hunters if I wait!
    I hunt 4 or 5 days a week as work allows me to set my own hrs and I mostly hunt early mornings.

    Anyone been out? I went sat morning called in one knocked him down at 100 yards in some tall grass, let him lay and continued calling, about 5 min later saw it trying to get up, it crawed into a bulldozed thicket and never recovered it.

    Seems like they have an incredible will to live.
    I'm without my calls/ gun for a few days (@ my cabin), hoping my target buck will mess up. Seems unlikely !
    Guess I will round my calls up and try a few spots soon... Keep getting rid of them

    Hunted one set this past Saturday morning with no success. On the way out had a deer come running straight at us over a knob with a coyote on her heels. Totally shocked at the situation I did not get a shot. Just very ironic.

    Fields are still needing cut corn still standing with plenty of leaves on the trees and bushes, but I've been out a few times and killed 3 so far all males none this yrs pups. Can't wait to see some bush hogging going on.

    raised n Bullitt Co.
    Had what sounded like a dozen not 200 yds from me yesterday. They were making some noise for 10 minutes then not a peep. Never laid eyes on them.
