Well I made a trip the other night to try and find a yote or two here just outside of Seward Alaska. A buddy of mine caught a glimpse of one as it skirted a frozen lake bed about a half mile from where we started. We made the haul across the soft powder in our snow shoes and got into position on the downwind side of the lake from where he saw the yote. There was no sign of the dog still on the ice when we got there so I gave it a few minutes and let out a couple of howls. It was decently late in the evening so I figured I might get an answer. That was a no go as all was silent in the woods. After a few minutes I started going to town on a Sceery snowshoe hare in distress call. I made about a 40sec series and then watched and waited. Sure enough off the far edge of the lake the young male came running out of the edge of alders. He made a bee line across the ice towards where we made our stand. He began to slow at about 80 yards so I lip squeeked a bit and got him coming on full bore again. He again hung up at about 50 yards. It was a little too far for my partner that was shooting a shotgun so I took the shot with my .243. I was shooting 100gr soft points and the young pup didn't stand a chance. I put a pretty big hole in the exit side of the hide. Other than that he was a beautiful dog with nice thick fur. He won't be much of a trophy as far as the hide goes due to the damage, but I'll still tan him none the less.
