Calling coyotes in southeast ga

Hey guys as the title suggest I'm in southeast georgia and wantin to kill some coyotes. Trouble is it's all row pines and oaks here. I have access to 2 dove fields but they're fenced in and slightly grown up. Also we've got a burn area that's about 25 acres but visibility would be iffy in there as well. That leaves us with just roads really and food plots but they're small for the task. So my question is would it be effective at all to set up a decoy and a call on a long straight stretch of road? If so what are some tips or methods that have worked for y'all?

Re: Calling coyotes in southeast ga

I don't have near the experience of many here with huntin' coyotes, but in tight cover I'd go with a shotgun. The chances of a yote stepping onto a road seem small when they have cover to make their approach. Shotgunning em' aint nearly as fun as a rifle but it happens quick and lot's of times right in your lap! Another choice would be an AR with a Holo sight,(on my wish list).
As for calling I've had luck with both hand call's and electronic one's, biggest thing was using something to distract the yote from my location...turkey feather on a stick or motorized decoy...when the yotes are in close they can bust you if you blink your eyes!

Yes sir I'll definitely be taking the mojo critter along with us. I'm way to clumsy to expect to be still enough. And it had occurred to me to set the decoy and call a couple hundred yards down to keep them a trifle distance. I do like the ar with the eotech idea though haha

If Your Hunting thick close areas I wouldn't go so far out with Your Decoy and Caller,I like sitting up in a ladder stand so I can see further out and have an advantage over the Coyotes and other Predators!

Re: Calling coyotes in southeast ga

Hi! I am also from southeast GA and I use a climbing stand for coyotes. I have had success putting a climbing stand over looking a field (same as deer hunting) and calling coyotes in. That way I can use a rifle. If I was hunting planted pine I would use a shotgun and slugs. I'll be doing just that in about 2 weeks. Good luck!

Re: Calling coyotes in southeast ga

I live in West Ga (Carrollton) to be exact we also have hills and planted pines thick oaks and alot of under brush but I have done my best and seen the most out of tree stands that have been put for a while or a climber . Thats the route I usually take if I cant get to an open pasture wich is getting were people letting you hunt them is getting fewer and further between . Seems around here people cant tell the difference between a deer or coyote than a cow or horse . I have had 2 different farmers tell me during deer season someone shot one of their cows . So it makes it harder on me when I ask permission , they look at me like I have lost my marbles when I say I know the difference between a COW and a yote one is BIG and one is small and looks like a dog

Re: Calling coyotes in southeast ga

When you say you do your best out of a climber are you hikin up a tree in the hard woods or rows or what? Around here the only open areas are dove fields which aren't cut right now or really ever and about a 25 acre area that burned a few years ago and is grown up over the height of a dogs back so I'm not sure where to set up. Also no one I know hunts em cause they're few and far between here so you guys are my only knowledge base so talk to me like I don't know anything about it cause I'm startin from basics.
