Genius idea

Postby Weaver.b » Sat Jan 27, 2018 1:44 am

A guy at work was just telling me a tactic someone he knows uses. He said the guy will trap a female coyote and put a tracking collar on it and release. Every 12 hours he would go in and kill a male that would run with her during breeding time. Then he would finally kill the female and get his collar back. It doesnt sound like a real cheap tactic but I thought it was pretty smart.

if your state allows tracking collars great
where I live that type of stuff is only allowed by the fish&game researchers and permitted individuals for studies
otherwise they come down real hard on you here for harassing wildlife

Seems kinda high dollar to me. But in the fishing world I often catch one the size I'm after pull off about 20 ft of line attach a large float, throw him back and follow around staying right on top of them plucking his buddies then grabbing the float for the last fish of the limit.
There's more fun in hunting with the handicap of the bow than there is in hunting with the sureness of pulling the trigger.

Interesting, what state allows that sort of thing? Sounds cool though...

I am in Ohio im not sure how legal it was. Never thought about it. We have an open season on Yotes with any weapon other than during deer gun.

Thinking out of the box on that one.....my question is can you really collar a live coyote in a trap with out sedating it? Would love to see this happen :clap:

Just like following a school of perch.

Take the first perch you catch and use a hook and line to attach a small ballon to the perch and toss him back in. He will rejoin the school and you can follow them.

With a catch pole it would be a challenge but doable

It’s not that easy to find an animal with a radio collar. I assume that’s what was probably used although it would be possible to use a gps tracker these days-subscriptions run about 10$/month but I would worry about losing a 200$ unit due to low batteries or a runaway yote.

My sister tracked elk, grizzlies and black bear in different studies during her university years. They rarely got a glimps of the animals they were locating.

Sounds a little fibby to me...

It very well could be. You know how stories can be. I was under the impression it was a gps collar like what you would use for a coyote dog.

Yea sounds like a good bar story, kinda like the DNR releasing cougars to control deer numbers that sort of think.

In theory it would work....if you could use a chopper with an aerial gunner like they do in Texas some places for hogs :D

From the ground, unlikely...
