Thanx guys, I did think of that and sure don't wast time gettin after them from the truck. In fact, it's the only time I take advantage of my disability. I can shoot from the truck as long as the conditions are right.( don't want to wear cuffs) Just cheking to see if there are different things to do for different areas. The king (aka Randy Anderson) says there are something like 16 species of yotes. Do they all respond the same?

You'll kill more yotes by calling than you will from a truck especially after deer season. They see a truck this time of year and they are gone. Anyhow I live in Eastern WA and typically kill 20-40 a year although only 3 last year and 4 this year. The storms we had the last two years messed it up for me. That said, it has a lot to do with where you hunt. The whole columbia basin is great for yotes but I have zero luck when I venture up north in the timber. If you live in the spokane area or south of that you just need to get some better ground. Last Time I was out (just before the storm) I called in a triple and saw 12 yotes that day. Also stay away from public ground, like fishtrap or swanson lakes. It gets hit too **** hard and calling there just doesn't pan out like private ground will. Since there's a few bs'ers on this sight I like to back up with pics. Here you go.

Wow, you know exactly where I've been. I'll take your advise and start knocking on doors to hunt private land. Sweet pics, hopefully I can get some of my own. thanx

You got it mutty. Been to fishtrap many times and have never called one in. I wont be going back it just gets hit too hard. Never been to swanson lakes but have heard it's just as tough.

Good luck to you.

Just to let you know, sat I went to fishtrap to shoot. When I was done I drove just over the hill and got a pup. Not a half mile from where i was shooting. Drove a little more and seen a total of 10 coyotes. I tried stalking and calling but no luck except the pup that was too stupid to run off. I was talking to another guy who was sighting in just before I got the pup and he was telling me that the road through fishtrap is'nt legal to shoot from the truck even with the disabled permit. So I got out to put a stalk on that pup, but he stopped at 200 yds. I shot and he ran so I started barking at him and he stopped again at 330 and I put him down. I'm tanning him just for the fun of it and when I skun him I found my first shot was high and just under the backbone. Second was a head shot and I also found another hole through his behind. I'm proud of my first for the season even though it's late and hope I can get another by calling. To me thats a real reward when I can call one in.

Way to go! You sure see a lot out there but they are stubborn. I sniped a little one myself there a few years back but he just happened to walk in my lap. I got a really nice one yesterday but the pic doesn't do it justice. He was a lot thicker and bigger than the pic made him look. Called him in to 65 yards. Saw 4 others, and called one other to about 300 but it winded me.
