Re: Calling coyotes in southeast ga

If You call along cleared out logging roads or mowed pathes it should work as long as you set up some type of decoy or feather Distractor to catch the attention of a a Coyote/Predator!Even in woods it would work if You can see a decent distance...pastures work well and I would reccomend setting up along the thick cover or tree line and set your caller and/or decoy out where You will be able to see a Coyote coming in.

Here in Missouri during the summer months when the fields are thick and tall with grass,clover,alfalfa or hay I find any place where I'm allowed to hunt Coyotes that have just cut their hay or mowed their CRP Fields and hunt over them when all other areas are too thick to see anything coming in to mouth calls or an electronic caller.Fresh plowed fields are another spot to hunt over,Newley planted fields etc all work well when other areas are too thick!

Fence Rows will work plus Your drawing in the Coyotes/Predators with Your calling so be ready for close shot opportunities,a shotgun might be the way to go or a good Rifle set on low power for closer shots.I use existing ladder or tree stands,elevated box blinds or ground blinds when available!Old Barns,Sheds and out-buildings or even Farm Equipment make great places to set up around to call from or hide You and most Animals are use to seeing them sitting around for long periods of time and aren't weary of them!

Re: Calling coyotes in southeast ga

Based on what people are recommending I'm in the worst place possible to hunt these things haha. There simply aren't any fields bigger than food plots here It's either row pines or muddy swamp bottoms where ya can't see 100 yards in any direction. Does well for whitetails but it doesn't seem conducive to a coyote. Hopefully it'll just make it that much more satisfying when we put it together haha

If it will make You feel better I've only shot maybe 2 Coyotes so far at long distances and we have some decent open fields!One Coyote wasn't coming in any further while it was hunting for field mice and I shot it at around 200-300 yards,the second Coyote was coming in across a 1/2 mowed field from a good 400 yards and when he was at about 150 yards I think He picked up my scent and cut to my right...I "Barked" at him and he stopped broadside at the 150 yard mark and I shot him with my .223 using 55 grain Hornady V-max bullets.

Most my other Coyote kills were at around 100,75 and 50 yards....had a few close ones at 25-30 yards that I could have shot with a Pistol/Handgun,even got a shot at a few with my Compound Bow while Archery Deer Hunting!The trick is to play the wind,try to stay scent free and use as little movement as possible.I also use a Mouse Squeaker or simply Lip Squeak if a Coyote is close!

Re: Calling coyotes in southeast ga

What is the terrain like? Reason I am asking; I live in Arkansas where there is pretty much just pine plantations, but there are terrain features. I called three in on New Year's day and killed two. I was set up on a ridge on a dead end road. I could see 70 yards down the road but only had a view 20 yards wide. First yote was shotgunned at 15 steps. Second was 25. IMO, I was on top of the ridge and the morning thermals were carrying my scent up, keeping me concealed, and I was able to approach the area silently. Also, I had done a lot of scouting and the area was hot with sign. It is very possible to kill them where you hunt. Use any terrain features you have.

Oh man the terrain is flat. I live at 13 feet above sea level and hunt at about 50 feet above. There aren't any rises or ridges high spots or anything

No help here. However, when you kill that first one be sure to give us some details. I would be very interested to know what works in flat pine plantation country.
