    Thats what I hear...prolly too much snow.

    When ya get too much, it is easy to put fresh dogs on the track and never fire a shot. Not my definition of fun but, lotsa guys do it that way toward the end of winter in Michigan.

    One guy we crew with has 1 dog that killed over two dozen one year all by himself. There is no turning that dog back as many a yote have discovered. As one might suspect, the dog could just about be called scar face...

    You are correct however, hunting farmland yotes, ya run into alot of straight liners and it can be difficult to keep track of everything without tracks. Besides, it is a helluva lot easier to cut tracks and get started if ya have snow.

    Used to, then joined the Army and got into duck hunting. I just don't have the time or space for hounds right now. I'll be looking to retire to CO or the likes and get back into them though... Only 13 more years:rolleyes:
