Default Colorado coyote

Hey guys new to the forum and new to Colorado
I've been coyote hunting about 5 times but only came home with one dog
I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction (no specific spot if you don't want to give one away) to hunt some coyote
I live in the springs but I am willing to drive anywhere from 1 - 3 hours to do what I love to do
Thank you in advance boys

go east young man, that's where the most coyotes are in Colo. Mostly private ground, but don't be afraid to knock on a door for permission. More coyotes on the eastern plains of Colo., then any where else in the state.
Just be aware that we're coming into big game season, with archery season already started. Getting access with big game season going on can be a little tough, but about Jan., when everyone else is done hunting, that's when it's time to get out there, knock on some doors, and get to callin'.

Also, make sure you know the laws about what caliber you can use during big game seasons when hunting coyotes.

As long as he is ONLY hunting coyotes and not even holding a big game license, there is no worry about caliber restrictions, even during big game season. Now, if he is holding a big game tag and there is a big game season going on at the time, then he would need to pay attention to the caliber restrictions then.

Had a landowner accuses my buddy and I of deer hunting, while we were only calling coyotes just two winters ago. This landowner threatened to call the game warden because we didn't have orange on and deer season was open. I told him to call the game warder real quick like because not only did we not have orange on, but neither of us held a deer tag, I was carrying an AR holding way more than 5 rds., plus my AR was in .204 cal., plus we had an electronic call. Long story short, he never called the warden because I actually think I convinced him that we were actually only hunting coyotes. He also wanted to accuse us of trespassing, but we couldn't get him to call the landowner that we were on either. I think he really just wanted to yell at someone that morning, and we were just across the fence of his property, so we got the cussin'

The laws are different depending on what side of I25 you are.

It is illegal to hunt game
birds, small-game mammals
or furbearers with a centerfire
rifle larger than .23 caliber
in regular rifle deer and elk
seasons west of I-25, unless
you have an unfilled deer or
elk license for the season you
are hunting. A small-game
license is required.

Yes, I forgot about the I-25 part of it, because i'm west of I-25, and it applies to me.

Default You broke the law

If you were using an electric call you were breaking the law. The use of any electric or recorded call is illegal in Colorado.

1.The use of toxicants, drugs, explosives, stupefying

The Flattops area is loaded with yotes, look at the Yampa area and if that's someplace you are willing to go I can narrow it down a bit.
