I don't hunt them this time of year.  However, they are feeding pups.  Pup and prey distress will work best.  Kill the pups if you kill the mother.

locate the den and hunt over it, won't be long and the pups will be telling everyone where the den is

Especially early in the morning....they make some noise.



Anyone know exactly or ballpark time that they stay in the den?  I'd guess only a month, two tops.

6-8 weeks is about the average that I found.  It depends on the qualityof the den.  If it is secure they will stay longer.  If it it isn't, they will relocate often.

Hubby called in a nursing female yesterday. He uses rabbit and fawn distress with pretty good success this time of year. She was about 120 yards away from me , sitting on a stump. I blew her off of it, I was shooting my 30-06 because I have a bear tag. I don't know how long she had been sitting there, I just thought I would take  a quick look with my binos before I moved.

Hope you found the den and killed the pups.  It is a slow, painful death for them to die of dehydration.

It's not always a death sentence, coyotes do adopt and surrogate females will come into milk. Some would say it's rarely a death sentence and hardly any pups die of dehydration from the main lactating female being killed.

Shot one (almost got 2) the other morning and one this evening. The one this evening came into a female barking call. Heard her barking in the reprod and mimicked her.  She made the mistake of stepping out in the pasture and droped her at 428 yds with the daughters .243.  That was coyote #18 so far for the year.  Mimick what you hear or when all else fails, woodpecker .  I don't bother using rabbit calls anymore.

Nice! I think this is our 3rd or 4th coyote this year.
 they've been pretty quiet around here, and we've had good success with the distress hand calls vs coyote vocalizations.
We both have bear tags so thinking there's a chance we could get one to come in, and it's been a little boring just looking for bear.

Rarely a death sentence sounds like wishful thinking.

I don't care if you want to shoot them. I just don't buy for one second that most of them are adopted. Even if a female without pups happened to come along it would need to produce milk within 48 hours.
