DU, I have a felling there won't be a whole lot of conversation at that meeting. It will also be slightly one-sided. But how ever it shakes out, be sure to hit the record button. You know it's been a while and us OLD folks tend to .... what was I gonna say?

I know this is the baiting thread, but you guys need something to get the juices going again.

Crops aren't harvested and won't be for a while so places to call are hard to come by. We called in this female tonight on one of the turf fields we have access to. I used the AR in 223 with 50 V-max and the Varminter 4.0 suppressor. The shot wasn't pretty but got the job done. Parvo would probably have done better. Just trying something different for a change. I forgot my camera but my hunting buddy took this picture with his phone. Unfortunately not a very good picture. Video below.

I have been playing hide and seek with this male coyote for better than 2 weeks. We killed a female calling last night and when I came home the male decided to pay a visit at about 11:30. It will be his last visit. I hit him a little lower than I intended and heart shot coyotes always run for me, but he piled up over in the cornfield. The 50 v-max from the 16" barrel 223 shot completely through him and exited with about a quarter size hole. The suppressor is a Dakota Varminter 4.0.

This is the picture of my hunting buddies coyote from last night. A three-legged female that he found with the drone this morning. We couldn't locate her in the corn stubble last night even with the thermals. She was standing straight on toward him and the shot blew her throat out at a little over a 100 yds. I should have his video later today and will post if it turns out okay.

Well things have been pretty slow on the bait pile where coyotes are concerned. Between the corn surrounding me, the heat, and now the rain, not much action for baiting or calling. I worked up a new load for my AR-15 in 223. I'm shooting a 50 gr. V-max at 3,250 fps but I need a volunteer to check my zero with the thermal scope.

I've been giving the crows a pass since they have been cleaning up the bait pile each morning and keeping the buzzards away. The past couple of days they have gotten slack and the buzzards have started to show up. It was nice of the crow to volunteer to scare the buzzards away. Sorry, but I had the brightness turned down on the thermal so the crow doesn't show up as bright white as a normal white hot object would. If you watch closely, you'll see him go airborne.



Yeah, you're right I'm getting bored!

Good use of your time DU.

Good deal. I need to find a local food place or butcher that would be willing to part with scraps, etc. Been using 'Ol Roy dog food from Walmart for the most part. Occasionally a can of sardines, especially when Mr. Yote shows up on the trail cams. My dad cooks bacon for his breakfast every day in the microwave and saves all his bacon fat soaked paper towels for me.

I started out with Ol' Roy too and killed some coyotes with it. Mixed in some meat grease whenever possible. I think it does better during the summer when their caloric intent doesn't need as much protein to stay warm. Forecast is for a cold winter, so maybe we can all do some good.

Burn, if you can find a butcher who processes deer, you may be able to get carcasses and trimmings in hunting season. I cut trimmings up into small pieces and place them in gallon freezer bags. A few deer and you will be able bait for months to come.
