Q:Hi... NY DEC is getting ready to release about 31,000 pheasants on lands open to hunting. In addition to the newly released adults, more then 41,000 pheasants were reared and released by volunteers around the State. Pheasant season starts in October, and 'junior' hunter's season will open first.
Q:I have been coyote hunting lately with not much luck. The most action I've gotten is this morning I saw a coyote like 800 yards away on a pipeline. These suckers are very very hard to find! Where I'm hunting is a management land (public land) that has ALOT of very thick underbrush that's stuffed with rabbits. Then it goes into pines and then to hardwoods. Right in the middle of all this is a giant open area of hills with only grass on them that stretches for about 3 miles long and about a half mile wide. It's got mostly mixed pines and hardwoods around it. Then off in te woods is where the power lines and gas lines sit. Where do you guys think is a good spot to set up? As in like geography wise, would they like big hills or would they come from down in a holler? And where are they most likely going to be spending alot of their time? In the thick stuff or in the open fields? I need all the help I can get!
