    When you are calling and the Damn coyote is going away from you. The call is not working. Thats about all you need to know about calling coyotes.:rolleyes:

    I never use calls for coyotes but i know people who have a lot of luck with "rabbit in distress" recordings.

    Start out with a howler. Wait 20 minutes or so then do some rabbit in distress. Or maybe some pup yips. Works great in illinois. Dont over do it though, they arent stupid. If you want some real good calling advice look into some Randy Anderson videos. That guy's a yote killing machine. He has a DVD called Mastering the Call or something like that where he does a great job teaching how to call.

    1984,

    Mr. Yote is a very wise predator. As Krisko stated I think the number one mistake is overdoing it. Even after you have mastered the call there are many factors that are in effect.

    Proper Call Technique
    Time of day
    Weather Conditions
    Wind Direction
    With wind direction I like to remind the hunter! How far can a good bird dog smell a covey of quail or a pheasant when the wind is coming from the game to the dog! Yep a damn long way. I have experienced this occurring up to 75-100 yards on occasion. With that in mind the Yote is an ultimate hunter and his nose is much more effective than the normal domestic dog. That is how he survives. No one feeds him. So the wind and scent is a major consideration.
    I use a rabbit mouth call as well as a Fox Pro Electronic Caller.
    Lastly is how educated the Yotes are in the area you are calling.
    How much they have been called and hunted.
    But most important is consistency and time in the field hunting. You will learn from every experience just by paying attention to the actions of the coyotes and conditions of the hunt. He/She is a smart advisary!
    And get a few of the Randy Anderson CDs.
    Good Luck!

    Also, start of with soft sounds, don't blair out a full volume rabbit distress on an electonic caller. Try to keep it real, sometimes less is better.

    This is also smart tactic wise. If a yote is somewhat close and u blare a distress call, it'll know somethings up and avoid it. Start soft, so it think the animal is farther away and thus it will make its way in that direction. Wait a while and get louder. And dont just sit in one spot all day. I usually change my setup about every 2 hours and make it a 6-8 hr day.

    Courage is not the lack of fear, but the willingness to continue despite that fear.
