Anyway, I think I was asking if anyone knows where I could find a place to hunt small game, coyote, rabbit, squirrel, etc.. Private or public land. There is a lot of stuff in season right now, and I would love to find a spot.
Thanks again.
(Also, thanks again for the gun input)

Well, I found a farmer to let me hunt his land. Next question, tags? Rabbit, coyote, skunk, etc.. are there tags for these critters?

This is the site that I frequent most.

It's got EVERYTHING one needs. Downloads, mp3 info, articles, make your own stuff, etc, etc.

This will keep u busy for a couple of years.

I've killed more coyotes than I can remember with a .22LR I wouldn't take a shot past 50yds, but a .22 to the noggin inside of 50yds stones em in their tracks.

Ive been successful with regular soft lead .22LR at close range, but after using CSI's copper jacketed "stinger" rounds, I will never shoot a critter with anything else when using a .22 Even a double lung shot with the stinger rounds put them down quickly.

Just know your limitations

You could even use a shotgun, just use number 4 buck shot, and limit your range to around 50 yards or less

Agreed,

If you are still learning the difference between a rimfire and a centerfire round, I would recomend hunting with someone that has some experience. A 22 rimfire still is a very dangerous round, know where you are shooting and whats behind your target.

Please take some target practice too. Nothing is worse than a bunch of animals running around with broadheads and lead in them.

What do people do with the dead dogs anyway? Is it fun just killing stuff, or are the pelts still worth something?

Fox : a 12ga with 3" 4 buck is my weapon of choice at close range. But there are a few properties I hunt with a .22 on, since the landowners dont like their windows rattling at the crack of dawn when theyre trying to sleep!

Also some public grounds like DesPlaines Conservation Area, Silver Springs etc. only allow a shotgun to be used for coyote hunting. No rimfires or centerfires.


Itch : The fur trading season is really over by now, but in late fall and winter, a good pelt skinned still goes for about $40. Usually around $20 for the whole animal. Some pelts are worthless tho. Either way, a properly managed property, or balanced ecosystem requires predator control. As adaptable as they are, with no natural predetaors or competition they can easily over populate an area. Then they destroy small game populations, can wreak havoc on nesting turkeys, and yes, even kill deer.

One farm in particular that I started hunting a couple years ago, that I started removing dogs from, has made significant progress. The turkey population has exploded, and I even started to see pheasants for the first time. There are enough turkey on the property now, that I even applied for a spring tag out there this year.
