I am new to calling coyotes but i have gone three or for diffrent days and all i can call is foxes and bobcats so far. i know its a good problem but is there a differnt call for coyotes.
I have been useing the DUBBLE COTTONTAIL and KAT NIP along with a electiric rodent squeaker from fox pro.
i see a ton of coyotes and hear them often and well im calling and i normaly sit for around 40 min or so
The guy that i learned from uses a call called lil dog or something like that would that help my odds or do u know other calls that would help. Thanks
LiL Dog is made by Primos and is a Randy Anderson invention/promotion.
I have not personally used one, I have one that I won in a coyote calling contest (door prize) but I haven't even taken it out of the box.? I am sure it works, most every call I've ever tried has called in coyotes.
40 minutes is usually plenty long enough for coyotes. Generally, if they're coming in; they'll be there pretty quick (often within 20 minutes).
If you're hearing them but not seeing them, you might just try to get up and move closer to them. We can hear coyotes from at least a mile away on a calm day (sometimes two miles away.......they are LOUD).
ive been using a foxpro with great success this winter.my three favorite calls have been the dying jack, cottontail distress 1, and lightning jack. just the other day i got my first double and missed the third one for a triple.this is just my opinion but i think youre calling to long.if there not coming after 15-20 minutes there not coming. most of the yotes ive shot this year have come after 45 seconds -8 minutes.hope this helps and happy hunting.
SBruce and Longbomb have brought you good advice. I'm not a fox guy at all but 'cats don't seem to have a "call memory". They say you can call a bobcat, shoot at it and go back an hour later and call it in again using the same sound. Not likely at all with coyotes. Changing up the sound and location and giving them some time before trying them again is all good advice with coyotes. I'm saying this to say that maybe your area is getting called by others or you have inadvertantly wised the coyotes up. That's one place the Foxpros really help by making some different sounds that are hard to duplicate on a handcall.
The Primos Li'l Dog is a good call and medium-easy to use. It was the first open reed call I used. For ease of use and sound, I really like the custom calls by Kerry Carver. His tone baords are awesome. I'll have an exclusive Signature Series set of calls on my website shortly. His production call helped him take second in the World Contest last month. Its only like $12.95. Great calls from a great call maker. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions on them.
