Default Coyote hunting?

what is the best knowledge or techniques for hunting the coyotes? something like a rabbit in distress or injured call? or just knowing where they den and hang out at?

I normally use some distress early in the year then switch to vocalizations later in the year when the breeding takes place. You still have to do scouting. Using the wind is extremely important. My rifle of choose is a 22-250 but many others are used and liked by other hunters. When in thick cover I use a 12 gauge. If you have any questions I would be more than happy to try to answer them for you.

I look for trails they use. Entrance and escape routes. I also try to search a little for possible dens. You can glass hillside at midday and might see one napping under a shade tree. But I want to know if there will be coyotes in the vicinity when I am calling. If you have some farmers around I am sure that they probable have coyote problems and would love to have them thinned out and they have almost all the information you need to kill some coyotes on their farm.

I've never tried trapping.But once you call one in,youll be hooked for life.They are by far the smartest thing in the woods around here.They can see,smell and hear better than anything.If your looking for alot of action it may not be for you.But when they do come in its intense.You may call 30 times before you ever have 1 come in.But that 1 time is worth it.

Coyotes are scavengers, if it is legal in your area, bait them. Call your local game warden and ask for a road killed deer. They usually will be glad to help you in your conservation efforts.

yea i only tried this once. We hade yotes like once a week coming right into my back yard, these things can make some noise, there were about three of them and constantly howled and yelped, one of the weirdest things ive ever heard. I bought just a general call and tried it out and never got a response, not sure what i was doing wrong, but they are sure smart. Not wanting to, i put some raw deer meat out on the ground and put up a trail cam and got some pretty nice pics. They are quite the little animal.
