Well, the move to Missouri is nearly upon me. I am going to be leaving California where there are millions of acres of public land to hunt and going to Missouri where all the land is primarily private property. It's going to be a big change and will require a lot of work on my part to gain access to land to hunt. There is a little public land near me, but not much.

In order for me to hunt I am going to need to go introduce myself to some land owners. There are lots of farms in the area where I am moving. Many of those old farmers with cattle, goats or sheep just don't like coyotes much. That will hopefully make it easier to gain access to private property. As you can see, I am going to be minutes away from potential hunting spots out in the rural area of NW Missouri ! I look forward to next years predator hunting season.

I looked at the Missouri hunting regulations last night and was reminded they actually have a season for coyotes. They only shut down for a couple of months. I will pick up my license as soon as I get there and will have almost a month to get some hunting in before it shuts down.

Thanks. To be honest, I don't know how many other predator hunters are in the area. The hunting may be good, or it may absolutely bite. Soon enough I should know for certain. :speed-banana:

There should be a lot of yotes in that area. I think on the bright side is that there aren't too many dedicated predator hunters. Mostly yotes are shot on during deer season.

I'm hopeful there won't be many predator hunters in the area. One of my MO hunting buddies has a 12 year old son who's very excited about predator hunting. I've sent a few of my hunting videos to them. Hopefully we can interest him in hunting to help another generation continue to further our passion to others.

You got a Youtube account with some of your videos? The mountain lion in your profile pics looking through the house windows, please do tell the story behind that!

I do. They're HERE and HERE.

I'm not certain what the actual story is behind the lion photo's. I received them by e-mail claiming some guy snapped them after seeing his dog, that was sitting in the living room, was being eyed like a asty snack.

You look like you're in the middle of some good coyote territory there. The regulation change will kind of be a pain though I imagine. I cannot believe that there is a season for coyotes in some parts of the country.

Newbie here and just stumbled onto this thread. I am fairly new resident to the Kansas City area. I've lived my whole life in rural southeast Missouri and this is my first time living in a big city. Since I don't have many hobbies up here, I have been wanting to get into coyote hunting. I do all kinds of other hunting, just never had time in the past. Now I do. I saw that you live close to Cameron, MO. This past fall I started deer hunting up there on some private property through a guy I used to work with. Now I'm thinking about trying my hand at coyotes up there. Are you having any luck with them?

Welcome to the forum and NW Missouri. Yes, there is good coyote hunting up here. You will find a few difficulties in hunting them depending on the season and what the land is used for. If you hunt on CRP the grass is going to be tall and near impossible to spot a coyote depending on the time of year. Crop and grass land present a similar challenge but allows a hunting window when the grass is cut or the crops are taken out. If you're hunting CRP sitting up in your tree stand would give you the height needed to hopefully spot a coyotes head bobbing above the top of the grass on its approach.

Just seen this thread. I am just about an hour north of you. We have some guys from down your way that enter in the calling contest up here. One of the guys that placed in the 5th annual event has a taxidermy shop in Cameron.

I've seen his truck around town. Hopefully next year I'll have access to enough land around here to be able to enter the contest.

Some of the people, yes. All of the politics, high taxes, and anti gun and hunting groups are things I will never miss.
