    Coyote hunting

    Your regular gear should be just fine. I wear my normal stuff, then in the snow, I have a set of windbreaker style over coat and bibs in snow camo. A super cheap snow camo as some have mentioned are those paint booth one piece jump suits, or even cheaper still is go buy a white bed sheet, and cut a hole in the center and wear it like a poncho.

    Who takes coyotes in CNY?

    Thanks so much. I'll drop him a line.
  4. I bought a set from Herb Phillipsons, that is just a large wind breaker type jacket and bibs that go over my regular hunting clothes. It wasn't very expensive, I think I got the pants and bibs for under $75. Hat, gloves, and face shields, I've purchased separately off Amazon or whatever.
  5. Hey guys. I am hoping to get into my second season of coyote hunting soon. I went last season in the southern tier, and was able to shoot and kill one coyote. This was on my dad's land, and he kept that coyote for the pelt. Being home in Onondaga county, I really dont know where to take a coyote if I kill one. I personally don't want the pelt, and I really don't want to just drag a dead coyote over to the brush and leave it either. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    What did you get for Christmas?

    Honestly, the cheek was good for me. It shot great. Snappy little round. Here is the best 3 shot group I got at 50 yards.

    Correct way to test/check wheel bearing??

    Jack the car up, so you can freely spin the wheel. Once doing so reach in and grab a coil on the strut spring. you can feel a faint "vibration" if the bearing is bad. A mechanic showed me this once, one side that was bad, you could feel the vibration in the coil spring as you rotated the wheel. Did it on the opposite side and the spring coil was dead in hand. Also wheel bearings usually hum once past 30 MPH. The humming changes going around a curve or bend, then comes back once straight on.

    time for a new e-caller

    I have a ICOtec GC300. I bought it used off Craigslist, and it works damn good.

    End of season blues - a gear washing question

    I just wash and dry as I would any other item. I have an old self standing clothes closet in the basement that I keep all my hunting clothes in during off season. I have not found a need to de-scent the washer or dryer before washing dirty hunting clothes.

    Canastota

    I dont think so. I've rifle hunted Nelson Swamp with no issues in the past. Have not yet tried Stoney Pond.
