    Congrats towards my counter parts in the northern panhandle of the state. Good looking bucks you have. We have 2 more weekend down here in the central area, so I'm hoping to add buck#2 soon.

    Shot this guy 2012 here in Connecticut with a w/Barnes expander 12 ga slug. Double lung shot, complete pass through @57 yards. 160lbs dressed. Absolutely no fat on him mid November during the rut. Great eating too! The taxidermist approximates his age at 5 1/2 yrs old.

    Thanks guys. I can hunt another 50 years and not shoot another deer this size in CT. I took him fair and square on public land, a 2,500 acre parcel. No back yard hunting for me.

    Sounds fun. I would love to do some predator hunting but we don't have a place down here in Fl. Fortunately where we hunt deer season runs until Feb. 17. My buddy and I are going back out this weekend to try our luck again. I'll post pics again if there's anything worth posting.

    Didn't shoot a single deer this season. Not for a lack of trying though.

    Whatcha talkin about Willis?

    All of the areas that I hunt at have coyotes. Not big roaming packs, but I always see them when sitting and non-stalking and also in Turkey season ( all on public grounds )

    Also what area has deer that runs into mid Feb? We are just closing up in south-west port of central ( north of hwy70) and my main area in PalmBeach was the 1st of 2013.

    I hunt up in Grand Ridge in Jackson county. It's just over the river when you cross into the central time zone. http://myfwc.com/hunting/season-dates We're in zone D.

    And I didn't mean that there wasn't any yotes because I do hear them howling I just never see them.

    I went up this weekend. Didn't score a buck but saw plenty of doe and a nice little button buck. This little doe walked around the my stand for about ten minutes. I was snapping pics and wanted to get a shot of her face so I gave a short whistle, she looked up, and I snapped the pic. I thought she would run but she continued to forage, paying no mind to me.

    It was a great weekend even though I didn't get anything this time.

    The freezer is full and am am very happy about that because it is TOO DAMN COLD to hunt! Oh I hate it. I'd love to hunt a few nights for coyote, but 0 to 5 degrees around here this week is just too cold for my bones anymore.

    NOTE: Yotes are statewide , & per that link that you attached and with no bag limits. Now managed lands would be a entirely different option, based solely on the area regulations.

    I even recall the state change the laws to use electronic recordings for yotes & hogs iirc.
