I'm probably going to get kicked off this site for asking too many questions, but here we go again. My future father in law has a couple coyotes that keep showing up on his farm, he mentioned that I can shoot them if I want.
I've looked on the DNR site and all I found on the subject was not mistaking them for wolves. So does anyone know what the rules are for shooting a coyote are in Minnesota? What do you do with them afterward? What would be the best to shoot them with (I have a .308, 30-30, and 12 ga Nova)? If the shot gun is best what shot and choke?
All I know is they're thick this year and I haven't seen a deer or a pheasant in months and months. I get up early in the morning to go to work and I can sometimes hear packs of them in all directions yipping and howling. That makes all the neighborhood dogs go nuts.
Now about two weeks ago I'm watching tv and all of a sudden I hear this loud howling. It's completely dark out but I open my window and this howling sounds like it's real close to the house. It's a low pitched, slow eary howl.
Just one. And no neighborhood dog has the balls to say anything.
So now I have coyotes and wolves in my hood. Great. We have horses and the occasional cow and never worried about the coyotes. Horses will kicj their a$$. But a wolf, or pack of wolves......
