    I have all the gear, and I've gone out a few times but no fur down. I've made about 10-15 stands, and on the second stand got 4 to show up. Of course they came in behind us, and by the time I got on one, I missed. After that it's been dry. Looking for someone that has experience, gear of their own, and some land. I don't plan on keeping the fur, will hunt over it or you can have it. I have some land (160 acre southwest of Corvallis or ~100 acre near Sweet Home), but not sure there are yotes on it. Sweet Home is the most promising of the land I have.

    Lots of coyotes near Sweet Home usually. I live near there, but in town.

    If you hit up Bob Horning, hornings hide out, on the right day, he'll let you shoot them on his land.

    I've been out on his property twice and eradicated them for him.

    Easiest thing to do is get an electric caller and a serenade call programmed on it. Play that at the crack of dawn and you'll know if there are yotes around.

    I'll join you if you'd like, to see if you've got any on your land? I'm no expert but I'll sit around and read while hitting the button on my electric call till something shootable shows up.

    Good info. I'll look him up.

    Found a yote skull on the edge of our property in sweethome (right on the river) as well as some yote poop (from the looks of it) so there might be luck on that land.

    The other property is pretty far out in the woods (southwest of corvallis), have never seen or heard them out there. There does seem to be some fox poop in the road.

    The foxpro I have works great, just wondering if I need to get all the anti-cent stuff or am I just playing the wind wrong...

    I've never messed around with scent stuff. Just bathe with a not so stinky soap and don't wear crazy deodorant.

    I do situate myself with the sun at my back though. Not always, but I have been spotted by yotes in the past when I didn't. Mostly this was because I was trying to get the to stop with a yip from a mouth call.

    I've been trying too, but I know you can't always catch a fish on the first cast.
