My grandson and I went on very first coyote hunt and it was a bust. We probably did everything you shouldn't do better than it's been done before.

Hunted in the Warden Lake; Pot Holes; O'Sullivan Dam area.

We picked areas I think with to much sage brush and probably should have been in more open grassy areas but didn't because we thought we would be to exposed.

But as never did this before does anyone have suggestions for future hunts in this general area as to what type of terrain to set up in?

Sit elevated on a rock outcrop or something so you can see over the sage. 

Use terrain to your advantage, put something to your back so the coyotes won't circle behind, like a rock outcrop/cliff or river, even a highway.

use a shotgun in the thick stuff

get up very early, call first hint of light

find some cattle to call around

Sneek in to your stand as if the coyote was there already, hide the rig away or out of sight of your stand, don't slam doors or talk loud...sound carries.

Watch the wind direction and keep it in your face.

Get settled in your spot quiet as possible and limit movement.  Make sure there aren't sticks or limbs that will break and make noise or move around when you do have to move and give away your position.

Have something behind you to break-up your outline as mentioned, but also something in front of you as well if possible so you are "in the middle' of the cover, just make sure it isn't blocking your shooting lanes.
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

If your from the area,  just sit and listen to those howls at night on any bluff, than choose where to hunt. It's loaded in that area.
