Calling in coyotes
« on: January 12, 2018, 02:49:17 PM »
Hopefully getting out to try for coyotes here later this month (or early next month) and looking for some tips.
Gonna Buy a couple foxpro hand calls before we head down.
How crazy do you go on them, how long of a period do you do before waiting?

Do you call for just a minute? 5? 15? How long generally before you try somewhere else etc...

If thereís another thread with this info Iíd love to see that too just looking for any pointers it would be very appreciated.
Donít have a coyote gun so just gonna take my savage .308 and blast the hell out of one hopefully, you know to help out the deer heards :chuckle:
Was thinking of trying Capitol forest or maybe just over the east side near Ellensburg.

These calls aren't very expensive for what you are getting. Plus when I called Rick, he actually gave me a couple short lessons over the phone. http://rrcalls.com/

Any motion catches their attention. You could try tying a feather to a fishing line with a swivel.

I am new to calling coyotes as well. From what I have read and watched on you tube they recommend calling for 30 seconds, waiting two minutes and calling again for 30 seconds using a distress call. Wait up to 1/2 hour and head to a new spot if nothing shows. I have only been out two times so far and not got anything so far.. Going to hit it again tomorrow. I think I might try some challenge calls and see how that works. I did have them calling back to me the other night. Good luck

I personally think that sounds are just a small percentage of what you need to know to call coyotes.  I think that stand selection and management is far more important than sound.  There is alot to learn about predator calling.  Everyone can produce the sounds, producing coyotes is the tough part.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

I call lots of coyotes and have for many years other than that I know nothing.

My favorite sound, no one can tell me what it is, but it sounds like it hurts.
Call where there are coyotes, not areas that "look" good
call for the right amount of time, depends on the size of the area, watch the wind

you are trying to hunt a hunter, sneak in and sneak out.
do not miss, if you can't hit do not shoot

that's my best advice.

When he says call where there are coyotes, a little snow can be a great help in figuring this out. Go out about an hour after it snows.

Watching the wind and sneaking into the stand, I think are the two things that have attributed to my success the most. Also, not fidgeting on the stand.

Re: Calling in coyotes (teanaway access question)
« Reply #10 on: January 21, 2018, 11:49:56 AM »
Still hoping for more feedback on my original question if possible but also curious if anyone knows the current conditions near teanaway campground? Looking to go east but not too far. My father in law has a 2016 f150 and Iím wondering if anyone knows how the roads are up there now/this time of year? Iíd love to drive up near teanaway campground and walk/hike around there for a start on some scouting/hunting.

Is it close to enough to the pass where getting up there in not accessible other than super long hikes or should the roads not be too bad near the campground?

Anyone has any info Iíd appreciate it. Iíd hate to drive over the pass to find that itís completely inaccessible haha
