  • “Lundberg enjoys the challenge of getting a coyote as close as possible. The shot can be anywhere from 15 to 300 yards.”

  • “I had the pleasure of hunting in Wyoming with Cory Lundberg, owner of CODA Depredation guided hunts. Lundberg has hunted throughout Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, New Mexico and elsewhere. He gets geeked over a good setup for coyotes and then calling them in for a clear, clean shot”

  • Hunting prairie dogs remains one of the grand traditions of the West, and CODA Depredation Services knows how to do it!

    Thomas McIntyre Outdoor Writer, Author -- Days: A Hunting Life
  • CODA knows predators! Even the huge success of the Utah DNR's helicopter-borne predator population control in the week before wouldn't ruin our hunt with CODA's superb guide, Cory Lundberg. He dug innto his bag of tricks, locked in the front differential and put us on some dogs in some of the most breathtaking and rugged country I've ever witnessed. My first coyote would be one that almost passed me by. He was haulin' tail, responding to Cory's wounded-rabbit wail like it was a dinner bell. Then, suddenly, as if he saw me blink he stopped only 15 yards from the tip of the barrel. I dropped him the second after we locked eyes. My extreme excitement and celebration was cut short as Cory somehow spied the coyote's buddy on a ridge 540 yards away. The first shot was close enough to make him nervous, but it wasn't enough to chase him off. With a little correction from Cory, we watched the coyote react as the second shot reached him, popping up in the air and spinning nearly around as he dropped behind the ridge. Talk about exciting! And to think, I totally expected the DNR had ruined out week, but his outstanding skill and experience made for one hunt and two coyotes that I'll always remember. Thanks Cory!

  • I look forward to the hunts with CODA every year. It never ceases to amaze me when coyotes come to those calls; it has got to be one of the coolest tings I have seen. I would recommend CODA to anyone. They know what they are doing and make it fun for everyone!

  • The most fun and most exciting coyote hunt I have ever been Layne Simpson <>Executive Editor The prairie dog hunting was unbelievable! I have never seen so many dogs to shoot, and it lasted all day! We shot one town for the good part of the day and we never ran out of dogs to shoot! This is some of the best prairie dog hunting I have ever experienced!

    Dave Henderson Outdoor Writer
  • I had such a great time. The guides were great to be around and they knew their stuff. They put us on so many things to shoot at I couldn't believe it. The prairie dogs never seemed to end and the coyotes were non-stop action. I will be hunting with Cory and CODA many times in the future!

  • If you are looking for a first rate experience, do not pass up and opportunity to book your next varmint hunt with CODA. Everything from the accommodations to the hunting locations was simply amazing, and guides were the best I have ever used. Cory and his guides knew the territory and the animals, which resulted in all of my guests being thoroughly satisfied each day. Simply the best varmint shooting I have done out West!

  • When you pay for a guided hunt, more than anything else you should expect the outfitter to work hard for you. Guides have no control over animals, weather or your shooting but should be able to put you in good country and they should be willing to put forth a good effort. You will get both with CODA Depredations Services. Cory Lundberg not only understands critters, he understands hunters and knows how to give them the most bang for their buck. I've hunted with outfitters on three continents and Cory and his crew could share the field with the best of them. Pack a lot of ammo, expect to eat well and be ready to have fun.
