    It's winter and I'm bored... I think I'd like to try Coyote hunting here in NJ. Some of my neighbors are having some issues with them with regard to their sheep herds so it seems like a good time as their numbers a growing fast.

    I have never hunted Coyote. I am restricted to shotgun in NJ. (I do own a .243 Win and really wish I could use it on my lot of about 8 acres -- effing NJ :steamed: )

    I would like people's suggestions on how to hunt these predators and wondered if there was anyone out there who's hunted them in the great state of NJ.

    (Type of calls -- Ammo -- Techniques, etc...)

    TIA

    Are they regulated in the Garden State?

    If not get a call, bring them inside 50 yards and slug them with some Sabot slugs.

    Thanks for the reply.

    No, there is a permit season.

    What suggestions might you make for a call? Are the electronic ones superior?

    I was walking through Bass Pro one day and saw a video,( electronic caller I think)and they were getting quite a few with it. You might check them out.

    An electronic caller and some "bait" should work. I would set myself up on a fence line around an area that the sheep are at. You can use a stuffed animal, pelt, cat toy, whatever, for the bait.

    Some ammo companies manufacture hevi shot for yotes. It's denser than lead and "they" say it will hold a tight pattern out to 70 yards. This will depend on your shotgun and choke.

    Don't waste your time with bait. One, it might be illegal.

    Bait = decoy. Not food. And it's not wasting time. It works.

    And if they're looking at the decoy while coming in, instead of you, that's a good thing.

    Best ammo to use in a shotgun would be 3 inch shells loaded with 1 7/8 or 2 ounces of copper plated bb's, that will give you a max range of about 60 yards.
