I was wondering if the summer is a productive time for varmint hunting. ###If so for what critter and where. ###I am still trying to arrange my first varmint hunt and ideas would be appreciated.

Coyotes in Texas are a year round predator! A little slow when they have pups in the den, but they can be called!

for yots during the summer, they hunt and are most active at night so unless you are going to hunt all night you should go out right before dawn and 1 to 2 hours before dusk you can get into a spot. start calling, i have been out right befor dusk and have had them howl so you know right were they are. also if you are in the right area WATCH FOR SNAKES!!!! good hunting

Summer is a favorite Mike. After the dawn stands are exhausted we move to the brush and more condensed areas. From what we've seen the older (more experienced) Coyotes settle down in the best habitat during the day. Those younger Coyotes are left to open country. Granted they're easier to call, yet have the advantage over the shotgun I like to use because they can see further. ###Slugs have taken a few though. One thing we've learned is that hot weather does it's share of spreading out "hunter ooze". Scent sense comes into play.
Ground Hogs are a bunch of fun! You can sit under a tree next to the fields. And wait for the action to start.
Its also great for your shooting skills. We get many shots 200 and 300yds.
Theres always something to do year round.
