So you can't hunt between dawn and dusk. I'm OK with that.

What kind of 'lures' can you set out? I'm thinking of using a mouth cal, and putting a white rag on a string, 30 feet from my stand, and wiggling it to distract the yote long enough to get a shot off. Is that legal?

It has been more than a few years since I hunted yodel dogs, but it was in Texas. There most anything goes including spotlighting as long as it isn't in an area with big game. Even then I got a wink from the local game warden that I knew since he knew what me well enough to trust me. As for NM, I have no idea.
I am not sure about what hours you are allowed to hunt; does that mean during the night hours or day hours? Anyway I doubt your attention getter would be a problem. When I hunted I would use a dead jack rabbit with a fishing line tied to it's head for the locomotion. It worked damned well!

If you want to get around the 'spotlighting' thing, get yourself a night vision scope. Mine works great.

As far as bait, you can use whatever you want as they are vermin. My granddad used to take one of the barn cats out with us. He put it under a milk crate and weighed it down with a rock. The whining kitty would bring 'em in real quick. Used to piss Grandma off big time, though.

Go ahead and take the wife's cat, so you can find out how good you can shoot under pressure,

Or perhaps you should say "avoid being shot" when the wife finds out!

I'm not that stupid

It would be easier to kidnap one of the neighbor's kitties.

I wonder if the 'Old farmer' you spoke to was the ghost of my Grandpa?

That old guy could wipe out the coyote, ring-tailed cat, skunk and badgers in a few weeks. He knew the 'old ways'. Including fermenting the mash to make his likker.

Sure wish I could duplicate his variety of clear distilled spirits.

In the last two weeks or so there has been a shortage of cats in my 'hood. Much to Guinness'' disgust. Our morning and evening routine is to "check for cats" in the alley behind the house and there's nothing for him to chase! There are also signs all over for missing cats... Fine with me, I hate cats, but Gdawg sure loves to chase them. I wonder if a few migrating owls or hawks are burping up kitty parts? (this is north charmington, ladera school area)

I know a couple HARD CORE song dog hunters in San Juan County. They regularly do top 5 in state hunting matches. They swear by accurized AR's and FoxPro decoys. They bag dogs out to insane distances. But a mouth call, chicken, and a milk crate is way cheaper than a digital decoy set up!

If you are seriously wondering about bait, shoot me an email and I will personally ask a local coyote extermination friendly game warden.

I can plainly see and hit out to 200 yards. The IR illuminator on it is great for reflecting off of Wiley's eyes. Runs off of an AA battery for several hours.

The only downside is it has to be re-zeroed when removed. That's why I just leave it on that rifle.

Wish I had picked up one for an FAL and an AK, also.

I live in the Montano/Taylor Ranch Rd area, so I know what you're talking about. After hours is pretty thick with the howlers in my subdivision. Many a cat goes prowling at night, and doesn't come home in the morning.

Unless you're using a suppressor, I'd be very careful shooting them there. It's a no-no even in that area.
