#30 bites the dust

Postby Old Duck Getter » Mon Mar 04, 2013 8:34 pm

This afternoon, after work, I shot my 30th. yote for the year. I think with the warmer weather we are having it won't be much longer and the fur won't be sellable. That doesn't mean I'll quite as it will be time for the wildlife (birds,deer, lopers and such) to have their young and these dogs can wipeout out a lot in a short time. Also have 21 fox to add to the count. Sure is a good way to pass the time (most hunts have been 2 hours or less) with not having ducks to chase. I'll be trying some new country as it is getting slim close to home. I'm hoping to get enough for the fur this year to put new tires on the old Nissan, a few fishing trips and some new decoys. With the work requirered to get the fur ready to sell this might be my last year for selling (I'm 65 now and have been doing this for a lot of years). If I deside not to hunt next year I'll have a bunch of streacher and fleshing board for sale, if anyone is interested in getting started.I'll still hunt them but not on the scale I'm been on the last few years. Hope all of you have ben having as much fun as I've had since duck season has closed.

Mike, 13 kit! I found a spot that has a lot of gray's. The gray's have been coming right at dark and coming on the run like they are starving, not holding back like they do in California.

Terry, next time I plan on going I'll call you. Most times it is just a spur of the moment thing. I'll call next week and we'll set something up.

That sounds like a good time! We have red fox here, and the few times I have tried calling for them I haven't been very successful

Didn't I read that state was enacting a bounty on coyotes in Nevada? Or maybe it was Utah, or both.

Is that true?
