Anyone decoying in Kansas? Just moved out this way and need some advice and maybe a mentor. Any info would be awesome!

I've tried it multiple times after the wife told me that our Labradoodle-stein was a hunting dog. She always changed her mind when she learned it would probably be a one-way hunting trip for the dog.

I don't know of anyone in my area using decoy dogs but I've seen some YouTube videos of a guy down in the SE corner I think. What part of the state are you in?

Good luck to you, I'm originally from SW of Wichita. Lots of greyhound hunters out that way but the wet winter/spring haven't helped them with all the tall grass.
And I hope you enjoy KS even though there are no mountains.

Aint many coyotes is Kansas anymore. Stay away from the areas that use greyhounds, the coyotes dont work dogs very good in those areas.

I appreciate it. Kansas isn't to bad. Might drive west and go scouting.

That couldn't be further from the truth. We've got more coyotes than you can shake a stick at. Lots of pups this year too.

I might be taking this wrong but to me it seems like somebody was wanting a little help/info or just a like minded friend and the above poster is just trying to shut it all down. Apparently nobody else should hunt in Kansas. Why be on this site or Why even have this website if that's the way it is? There is a long drawn out thread about what's wrong with this website and its things like that that will kill it? I've been a lurker for years and after seeing that I started posting more and I'm sure I'm not the only one doing more to keep it going. But things like that are what's killing it

btech29 is one of the most respected decoy dog coyote hunters in this country. When he says using decoy dogs in areas that the coyotes are hunted with Greyhounds doesn't work very well, you should probable listen to him.

I don't think there are very many coyote hunters that want to see the specific areas that they hunt in posted on the internet.

I apologise if I'm wrong. It sounded to me like somebody who doesn't want anybody else hunting around that area (which is pretty big) by saying there aren't many coyotes any more and then getting annoyed when somebody else said there are plenty of coyotes to hunt. And I've seen it before on here. I actually found predatorMasters through another forum that happened to be talking about how the people on here treated people bad. That's been a few years and I don't see it as much as I did but it could get bad. People shouldnt knock anybody or steer them the wrong way just because they think nobody new should try it or they are doing it a way that you don't like. And I might just be reading the whole thread wrong and apologize if I am..

I was referring to the coyote population, which is doing just fine. I also didnít mention my specific area in any way. I donít know much about decoy dogging, and wasnít referring to his comments on that. Wasnít trying to be confrontational in any way. I was just responding to his comment that there arenít many coyotes in Kansas, which certainly isnít the case.

Osage, What are your assessments of this years coyote population in Kansas based on?

Seeing them around home when I hunt and feed cattle, and talking to other friends who coyote hunt in different parts of the state. Itís certainly possible that they could be down in areas, but I havenít heard that from anyone, and that hasnít been my observation. It seems to be up in my area, if anything. Again, Iím not trying to ruffle any feathers, I was just surprised by btechís comment on the coyote population. I donít question the knowledge of anyone on this forum.

ETA: Iím deer hunting this morning, and have already seen some coyotes, and heard them howling in several directions. Saw a nice bobcat from this tree last weekend.

No ruffling of my feathers. I do have the opposite assessment of coyote density than you though, at least in the 10 counties that I predominantly hunt. These were hugely affected by the near perpetual flooding from February through July. The prey species were decimated and I expect the YOY crop was also. It's logical to think that adults migrated to better conditions and maybe you'll benefit from that.

On a side note, I wish you deer hunters would get finished up so I can get back to calling coyotes!
