im from north dakota we hunt in that much snow all the time, snowshoes a must have to get at least a half mile or further from the road, if the snow is very soft and deep the coyotes wont come very well unless you give them something to run on they wont use crp, when it gets hard and crusted its noisy a little wind helps with the noise, other wise dont get too close where you think he animals are or your busted

Dealing with the same thing here. I was supposed to hunt for 3 days in Northern MO but not so sure its worth my time right now with this snow. The guys seem to think its the perfect time to come up, but im not so sure the dogs will be moving. Thoughts?

If you can find crows around dogs usually arent that far away.I'm not sayin everytime you hear a crow there's a coyote close.
I was just out today and i was gettin ready to call it a day once the snow turned to freezing rain.Then i heard some crows so i called alittle more.
I got them to answer but it got dark and i dont't have a light.

Is it ok to say "i hate you" in public? I hope so because we're up to our ears in the stuff.

I read about this set-up in Pa Game News back in the 70's, you prop up the sheet in front of you , cut reverse u in sheet so shotgun has access' if I recall they stated that it's best to have afew wounded crows screaming to add to the frenzy. I shot plenty of crows, never had them screech when on ground. They can sure run fast and duck for available cover. I've also had crows respond to any distress call. They changed the season in Ga it closes 2/28 as well as fox,bobcat,squirrel. Coyotes 24/7 except on state land, can't use electronic on state land and only for coyote. Fox, Bobcat manual/hand calls only. Let me know how it works for you.

Lol, I am no doubt! We have had snow here twice this year and it lasted for about 2 days. Im just givn you guys a hard time, I know that has to suck to know stuffs probly moving and you really cant get to them. It will come back around here in about 4 months when its about 105 degrees in the shade!!! Got to do the best with what you have to work with I guess. For now got to go walk about 800 yards in the mud from all the rain we've had to make a stand. Thats my snow rite now!!! sucks
