Re: Coyote hunting tips

Hunt with wind in face and sun at your back. Hide your silhouette. Start your calling sounds low and work up to louder. Keep an close eye on your down wind. Everyone that hunts these critters knows these tips. These are the basic ones. But as you hunt more often, you will pick up on tips of your own.

Re: Coyote hunting tips

hunt with the wind at your back so if he wants to wind you he has to be dead set in the middle of your killzone.

howl first

my close range gun is a 44mag carbine, just got some 305gr gas checked hardcast to try. Your close range gun doesn't have to be a shotgun.

learn how to locate coyotes, and do it, often.

use hand calls and learn how to read reactions and responses, then respond correctly to pull them closer.

always keep calling after a shot, I've called dogs back in or new ones in even after a buddy and i fired six rounds into his friends.

Re: Coyote hunting tips

Some will say wind in your face and others at your back. The main thing is be aware of what the wind is doing and get the dog shot before he smells you. A coyote can come from anywhere, but they will work their way down wind.

As time goes by, the single most effective advantage I have learned is to shoot longer range. I used to shoot most coyotes under 100 yds and now most are 400. It's getting harder and harder to find a coyote that isn't call shy. Focus on shooting more consistent at distance or finding fresh territory to call. If you can't find fresh country, don't call at all. Just hunt them like you would anything else. Don't let yourself be seen or heard, and use your binoculars often. Then reach out and touch them.

Re: Coyote hunting tips

My best calling spots continue to produce year after year. For example there is a particular knob overlooking a large bowl that I kill several coyotes off of each year. Don't over hunt your good areas but keep checking back on them occasionally and they will likely continue to be good in the future.

My next best tip is to be extra stealthy on your approach to the stand, over the top sneaky and be mindful of the wind. I typically hunt open country and I have blown a few stands spooking coyotes on the way in that would have almost definitely responded to the call had they not been spooked.

Re: Coyote hunting tips

Watch the TV show Carnivore. It is the best I have found for teaching and learning the ways of the Coyote.
