Spent Friday afternoon and most of yesterday with the Fox pro, and an assortment of mouth calls, and made about 30 sets in a 15 mile range,.
seen yotes, and what i learned
1, when he is sitting on the shoulder of the road, watching cars, hes not that hungery... and they always seem to sit ON THE ROAD..
2, warm weather +15 and up... they looked at my calling location but made no move to investigate...
3 seem to be up mid day during the low light and bedding at night still...
4 i am really good at calling in ravens and grey jays and mag pie... the raven swooped in and attacked my Fox pro decoy, while it bobbled around.... not sure it can be sewn back up... nearly lost the entire critter..
need more snow and really need colder temps.. lots of single animals.. and at least two packs back in the hills yet, heard what sounded like 20-30 yowling in the hills behind us... all with in a local area..
needless to say, only ones i seen were ON the road... and unable to be shot, and only spooked off when big rigs blew by them.. I did find a dead, half eaten husky/sled dog,,, asked around but havent located its owner so they can stop looking
