    I love hunting. I trapped a lot when I was younger but I've been bitten by the hunting bug. I'll hunt anything. I've got a pre-67 Springfield 20ga., Smith & Wesson M&P .40c, and looking to get more. I love hunting with Mossy Oak but I also have a Cabelas full suit. I use my Half Jackets a LOT out in the field. Permisson and Bronze lenses work great. I also live in southern Mich. so it'll be tough to deer hunt (with all of the sickness). What gear/game do you use/go for?

    Just picked up my new Bareta A400 Unico camo 28inch 12guage this week, mainly do duck hunting but do big game whenever i am lucky to get the oppertunity, i use colombia jackets because they are guaranteed for life to be waterproof if not they will send you a brand new current model jacket for free if you send in your old one even if its 15 years old, and a pair of cabelas lightweight waders... use my Team USA Flaks with Black Irid or my Fast Jackets with Persimmon.

    edit: also got my .223 AR i built with a 18inch DPMS Fluted SS barrel upper and CCMG lower with a 2 stage gisele trigger that i use for varmit hunting.

    Not much of a shotgun hunter, but I love whitetail/hog hunting. My family has around 300 acres of private property right outside of Liberty, MS in Smithsdale. I've got a Rem 700 .300 Win Mag, Browning A-Bolt .270 Win, H&R Handri-Rifle .35 Whelen, Stevenson Double-Barrel 12GA, Early 80s Ruger 10/22, and a Colt LE6920 (Use this one for hogs, coyotes, etc.). I've also got a Browning Verado bow, and a Colt Delta Elite 10mm that I use as a sidearm for hogs. These are all the weapons I use for hunting. I have three other pistols, but none of them are used for hunting. I have a Colt Rail Gun .45ACP that sits in my nightstand, a Springfield XDS .45ACP that I use for concealed carry, and a 1957 S&W M&P 6" .38 Special revolver.

    Yeah, check with local and state laws about automated squealers. We usually get more than we can we handle when we go out bunny bustin. After BB we, set up the squealers and the blood trail. Also, I would check with Division of Wildlife Resources or whatever it is there, for public lands, and the owner for private lands. When we go hunting its most always on private land, the cattle rancher gives us $25-30 per set of ears. In other words, work out a deal and get either the state or a rancher to buy new Oakleys for you. They are considered varmint/predator so a hunting license isn't necessary, just hunting safety. As far as gear:
    since we bunny bust when the snow is falling hard or just after, I dress for that. I always wear full waterproof/gortex type material, some good comfortable hunting boots, or blind boots. I only wear a pair of jeans and a t shirt. For my Oakleys, I wear a pair of splits w/ anti fog, or pair of gascans with bronze lenses. Pair of lightweight or assualt gloves. We bunny bust with an arsenal. Usually between 4-11 people. Each with multiple guns. The most common: a shotgun, a pistol, Ak or assualt type, and a rifle. I like a sporterized sup'd up mosin nogant or a sythetic 30-06, Anything will do it, depending on the range and area. Oh yeah, and plenty of ammo. You won't want to stop especially when they start piling up.

    Coyotes can be one of the harder animals to hunt because they are smart, and have excellent eye sight. Camo is going to be the biggest player here. You have to break the human form. I highly recommend ASAT camo for this. Second, if you can find something to hide behind or in, do it.

    As far as their behavior, they tend to go for smaller animals more than anything, so look for areas that are abundant with rabbits, squirrels, mice, chipmunks, etc. Fresh clear-cuts, open fields, and river bottoms are common places you will see coyotes. The best way to get them to you is by calling. Rabbit squealers are probably the best thing to use, and what I have seen most success with. You might also have success with a coyote howler, but squealers tend to work better. Also, if you have been calling for more than 30 minutes, and haven't seen anyone, pack your bags and move on. Reason being is, there are none in the area, or they caught on to you. Coyotes WILL come to calls, it's just their nature.

    As far as a weapon is concerned, just about anything flat shooting will do the trick. AR platforms are probably the best for ease of use, and capacity. If you don't have an AR, a .243 or .270 is probably the best option. You want something that shoots very flat because coyotes will not get that close to you.
