    Are there a lot of coyotes in Marlborough Forests? I’ve been looking at the map and I think I might go for a hike/scout on the weekend and I was wondering if I should bring a gun?

    I only have a shotgun right now so it would be a 12ga with mod choke and #2 shot(what I currently have) or I could get another size.

    Edit: I would also have my 10yo son with me and worry more about him than me.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks ,
    Rob

    What WMU is your camp in? You are right on the line for a couple areas that have different season dates for small game and waterfowl.

    I will be up, if nothing more then to drink tea and sit around the fire. Ok going to burn a few marshmallows too.

    Just a few questions to clarify things:
    Should I wear blaze orange when upland hunting?

    A. Always except Duck hunting. Regs are specific to when, but as a general rule...I wear at all times when not duck or in camp. Safety first

    Is Mossy Oak\Real Tree ok for ducks or do I need waterfowl camo?

    A. The ponds I hunt and teach on are all in reeds Reed beds, any camo will do, BUT most important is face and hand camo. You could wear pink pants, and a grey top.. only your heads and shoulders protrude. By the time they see it is too late.

    Wader or just rubber boots?

    I get by all season with Rubber Muck boots from CTC. We mostly stand on reed beds (low water), or pull boats up on reeds. I have 3 boats to share and ferry people about


    Is there a specific parking lot you use in Marlborough Forest?

    Text me at number above and I will provide directions. 90% of last year, people were able to drive right into location of camp in Honda Civics..bit rocky..but take your time.

    Since I am in the woods every weekend..anytime is good for me.

    I bought my first shotgun this week and would love to join in on an afternoon of upland and evening of ducks/geese. I'd like to do a morning too but that might not work out with the wife and son.
    I have my small game and will pick up a migratory license as well.

    I'm sure I'll come up with something else but for now, thanks and I look forward to meeting you and other Eastern Ontario hunters.

    LOTS and LOTS of Yotes...however they are very smart and the chances of you seeing one on a walk is about 10%. I do coyote camps as well and full on Coyote hunt all fall and winter.
