How do I get the male?
« on: January 08, 2018, 05:10:26 PM »
Calling a new location this morning.  Foggy as heck.  I have never had good luck in the fog, but my ten day forecast says its all I'm getting, and furs will be getting thin soon.  I have always suspected that the problem was visibility, and this morning reinforced that notion.

Got set up in this sheep pasture, did a couple of ki-yi's, and this other thing that I do with my call....don't really know what it is, but it works sometimes.  I was pretty exposed, and just kept scanning....scan right...scan left....scan right....scan left.  There was almost no cover...for me, or coyotes.  So on the last scan, I see something different, right in front of me.  Just looks like another weed, but I just "noticed" it.  I put my scope on it, and even then it a couple of beats before I could see a set of ears.  Yep, it's a coyote!  Kind of facing me at an angle.  I put the cross hair on the point of her shoulder, and touched one off.  Coyote down!

I called  another five minutes or so, and went to pick her up.  Paced it off at just under ninety yards.

The thing is, it was a female in heat...there just had to be a male nearby.  Probably was there, but I couldn't see him.

So, I'm wondering if he will be hanging around there looking for her.  Seems likely.

Same here I use a coyote decoy after I get one of a pair usually the next day or if I shoot one in the morning I will go back right before dark.  Its worked probably 30-40% of the time.
