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.
