Predator Management in Roosevelt 133
« on: January 25, 2020, 08:00:39 PM »
Iím curious to hear of success stories on predator hunting in 133. I have a large amount of property/ mountain and canyons, and have routeinely had 10 different cats on trail cameras for the past 3 years, as well as a large amount of coyotes and wolves here and there.

As the deer population in the general area has declined strongly in the last few years (there are stills deer around, but recent years have noticed a decline) I have started to take up predator hunting, but with only minimal success.

So Iím curious to hear of people having success in predator hunting coyotes and cougars as regards to what time of year, how to set up, good areas to set up ie. meadows, canyons or timber.

Hey let me know and I'll come help out  :drool:

Prey sounds, minimal movement, good vantage points, dont try to pull cats from cover etc etc.

Not to thread jack, but has anyone had success using remote Ecallers with a mojo or some movement thing on the ground in brushy areas, while your in a tree stand?

I've killed a few from deer stands doing that. Not worth the extra effort IMO unless with a kid or somebody super fidgety

Just keep after it, you will refine your technique, the more you are out the better you will get.

Adding to the jacked thread Sorry, while deer hunting from a tree stand I had two coyotes hunt through 15 yards in front of me, but I was deer hunting so I did not shoot.  An hour or so later they (assumeing the same ones) came back through. I figured it was a sign and they wanted to die. Shot the one on the right, the one on the left just stood there wondering why it's partner was laying down smoking, to late it got 25,06'd too.
There are only so many sunsets left.                         
He wanted a Hawken rifle 50 caliber or better. He settled for a 30, but dam it was a genuine 300 WIN MAG you couldn't go no better.

We saw huge numbers of cat tracks when we deer hunted near Wilbur a few years back. We also had three or four spotted young cross the road ahead of us. Then we saw momma up on the hill watching from above. It was a major dilemma deciding whether to grab the camera or the rifle next to it when I went to the back of the truck....

We just got back from our cabin over there today. I would watch some videos of guys that predator call on you tube if your bored. You can glean some things that are good to do and alot that aren't. We didn't do that good saturday. Saw 5 today and my brother killed one and missed 2. Seemed more responsive today and willing to come to the calls. We used howls and some distress.Don't feel like you should have them come running in everytime you try.Some days it just doesn't happen.Other days seems like its easy.

Snow is your friend. Both in figuring travel corridors and frequency of the travels and numbers involved. You certainly have a mess of cats and that will take a toll on all prey in the area, combine the wolves and bears outside of dead winter and wow.

Welcome to posting on the forum. And good luck!!!

I have officially seen eleven mountain lions in the wild, seven of them were in unit 133. Huuuuuge cat population out there. Four in Hawk creek, and three near porcupine bay. Missed one with a bow, wounded and lost one with a bow, and killed one with a bow. The bio who checked the cat said they were the biggest threat to the sheep herd, and liked to see them shot.

Ive never seen a wolf there but I know they'er around.

Shoot lots of coyotes out that way.
