What State
« on: December 28, 2017, 07:31:57 PM »
If you had all the time in the world (retirement) to predator hunt, what would be the first state you would travel to call predators and why?

Idaho to help the elk/deer in hard hit areas. Specifically wolf hunting and trapping.

For lots of opportunity I would think Nevada (Lots of private land though) or Wyoming for coyote and bobcat. A friend of mine from Kansas keeps saying I should go there for coyote. I think Idaho is top or near top for lion hunting .

I'd be in Idaho for wolves but Nevada would be high on my list.  76% of the state is public land and there is an insane amount of song dogs as well as fox.

A friend of mine lives in central Nevada where the coyote hunting is really good but there were a lot of private ranches. I should have been more specific. Karl is correct on the public land amount and the amount of dogs.

I'm retired and love to hunt coyotes.  I put together a hunting rig with a bunk in the back, solar panel and propane furnace.  I hunt up to five different states each winter. 2017 I hunted WA, UT, WY(one day), NV and NM plus called in AZ and OR without taking a gun out.  UT, WY, and NV you don't need a license.  I take off and make a few month loop around the west.  I can camp for free everywhere I go and have a complete kitchen set up.  I have friends and hunting partners scattered all around the west.

It is really pretty inexpensive to do it.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Make mine a Minaska
