Jim,

I like your idea of a blind. That sounds comfortable, and certainly nothing wrong with that. The older I get the more I think about a little bit of comfort. Seems at times I like to be out and about, calling here and there, and other times I just like to sneak down to the farm and sit quietly for a while. It's nice to be able to do it both ways and have some variety.

We think along the same lines. I like to call with my Fox Pro and I like to call at night, but sometimes it's just too darn cold, my bones will just not take it like they used to. Or maybe I am just a little smarter. Or lazy.

That is some good pictures you have with the two yotes. I have a Marlin 22 mag but I figured it was a little weak for yotes but maybe not.

Jim

Hi Brian
I really like the Radio talk shows but I am never there at the right time to ask questions. Always a day late and a dollar short, that's me.

Jim,
My hunting camp is 3 miles back in the woods and I use a Chamberlain Driveway Alarm
http://infiniteelectronix.com/chamberlainrwa300rwirelesspedestrianandvehiclealert.aspx
I have 4 sensors hooked up overlooking the bait pile and the range is great! The reason I have 4 sensors is I bait on a brook in front of my camp and the coyotes run the brook and this just gives me more time to get upstairs and make the shot. The only recommendations are to use NiMH rechargeable batteries they seem to work a lot better in cold weather. They are pricy but work the entire season with just 2 charges. The reason I bait is when the weather is bad I can still snowmobile into my camp and hunt over bait. In the luxery of a warm camp and a cold drink I mite add smile









THIS PHOTO OF A COYOTE APPROACHING THE BAIT WAS TAKEN THROUGH MY GEN3 NIGHT VISION. THE CAMERA DOESN'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO WHAT IT LOOK LIKE IN REAL-TIME. BY THE WAY THE COYOTE WAS DEAD ABOUT A MINUET AFTER THE PICTURE WAS TAKEN cool

That is a neat set up you have there. I like it.
The sensor I just ordered will go 400 ft. My bait pile is 75 yds. or 225 ft. should work good.

Thanks for the tip on the batteries, I will get some.

Jim

There is a guy @ snipershide.com that has a great pic of his baiting set up. Try a search. Totally awesome!! Table right by his bed which is a shooting table/night table and has his gun sitting in shooting front & rear rests. All he has to do is open up a window! Very BadA$$!

Now that's what I call comfort and organization !!!

Jim, I don't reach for the .22 magnum when I deliberately go coyote hunting, but a lot of guys do with good success. It worked for me this time at least, but it was a head shot. Dropped like it was pole-axed. Distance was about 75 yards.

Brian D.-Your comment about sitting in the cold starring at meat for hours, cracks me up. That is sooo my story, however I can't quite call myself a "Yank". (ha,ha)
Cougar Jim- I'm glad to see your post on baiting. Thank you.
Pretty near all of my predator hunting is done above bait piles. Due to my limited hunting arena, I sparingly use calls in the beginning of the season and then towards the end. I hunt all legal predators, so a bait pile affords me the opportunity to hunt fox, oppossum, raccoon and skunk. This time of year deer scraps are plentiful and my local butcher is more than happy to see me. This year for the first time I have added a revamped walkway light to one of my bait stations. Basically, it is a solor panel walkway or driveway light inwhich I switched out the 2.6 v. battery for a 6v. and attached it to a post about 8-10ft. above the bait. As soon as this relentless wind stops, (3 days straight now) I plan on testing it out. Too often I have had fangs-n-fur show up undetected while waiting . . .according to my game camera.

Neighbor has a setup like that.
Scares the crap out of his wife when he pops off a few rounds during the middle of the night.

My sister was at my house and noticed my "shooting window". She said why is that window screen pushed all the way up - looks to side and sees rifle, bench, rang finder, light, foxpro, etc. - rolls eyes - Ohhh, OK,never mind. It's for coyotes isn't it?

I just ordered a drive way sensor off eBay that will transmit up to 400 ft. The sensor is water proof. I won the bid for $12.50 I will let you know how it works. and will post some pictures of my set up. I would like to see some pictures of other guys set up. Some has already posted theirs.

If we keep this thread going, we might get a baiting forum?
I like to sit in front of a warm heater and enjoy my favorite sport of hunting when the weather is real bad. baiting is just another challenge that keeps me interested and going.
