Re: Best way to hunt over dead cows

When I lived in Arizona White Mountains I called over a few dead cows. Early morning, with some hurt pup. Gives the impression that there is fighting over meat. Better if there is some cover for you to blend.

I prefer to gun them on the way in or out of a bait, that keeps the bait in good shape and you'll kill more dogs that way. If they associate the bait with getting lit up then it's done for quite awhile.

A light sprinkling of temic will have you tight with the rancher and hunting deer in the fall. Securing some temic is the trick though . All kidding aside , pass shoot the area as they wise up fast if you shoot over the bait.

I may be a little off here, but even if you could telepathically scramble the brain of every coyote you saw, there would still be some left over to give the rancher grief.

Re: Best way to hunt over dead cows

Theyre nocturnal for sure... I shot 2 in the morning right in the head at 300 and one at 75 with a 22/250. No pics forgot it in the 430am rush sorry. I ended up wasting the rest of the time walking around the rolling hills not seeing anything. Unfortunately it seems I need to hunt them at night.

Re: Best way to hunt over dead cows

The best advice I can give to shooting over bait is the EXACT same as it is to call in coyotes.
DO NOT EDUCATE THEM.

If you have 4 coyotes on bait and you only have one shooter...wait until 2 leave on their own accord. If you have two shooters, plan your shots so that you can drop them before they run. Wait for a pair to line up and try to take two at once.
Do your very best to kill everything and if you have to, let a couple walk.
It's hard to do, but it's easier in the long run.
If you let any of them get away after hearing gun fire, they will be educated and hesitate before returning.
If you have one or two, take them both out and return the next day or two, to see if their are any others that weren't there before.

Plan your spot/stalk accordingly. Move in before first light and get to a spot where you can take your shot, without being winded. This is the perfect opportunity to think like a sniper, not just a predator hunter.

It won't take long for new coyotes to move into a new area after they realize the previous occupants are gone.


We have a spot 200 yards from the house that we move dead cows to, always the same spot, always out in the open...and we usually take 5-10 calf killers off of it throughout the year. Often times, we shoot them right out the 2nd story bedroom window. It never fails. Kill 2 today, and a week later, two more show up.
If you let one get away, chances are, it won't be back for a while...if ever.

Re: Best way to hunt over dead cows

Thanks cbass, sweet vids by the way.

I'm going to try it out Saturday morning and see what happens. I think I'm gonna try to set up on an opposite hill and shoot down into the pile, I've only seen a couple dogs out there at once. Hopefully my buddy can come or I will have to wait them out. But i got a sweet set of binos that are gonna help me glass the area
