re: Coyote hunting, Tips

The sardines is that for cats or coyotes. Here is 1 I got making a decoy using a old batt charger box good and light took my spining wing duck decoy apart. Cant use them any more not leagle. NOW do I want it to spin up in the air in a circle or or have it out the side with a spring or shoe lace tie a pelt on it. It would look like a rabbit jumping and flipping what you all think?

I have used sardines and other fish for coyotes. I have a decoy heart decoy now but I have used turkey decoys and a coyote pelt with wire to hold up the tail. If you make one on a spring use lighter than 10# test mono fishing line to make it move. The sardines will give them a conformation when not if they get down wind. I've tried fox urine as well as deer dander on the decoy with the sardines I can leave the decoy/gear in my truck. Otherwise I have to put the decoy cover in a ziplock and freeze it or my wife will toss it out.

I got this one spot picked out. on a hill looking in to a swamp (not your duck swamp but deer the stuff you have to crawl though) the hill has been clear cut a few years back. Do you think if I were to set up a decoy up were you can see it from there it would work? what decoy fox coyote or rabbit? to day it is going to be just calling?

I'd use a prey type decoy
Your set-up for 1 calling session is great provided you pay strict attention to you entrance/exit and wind. They learn fast faster if you miss them.
I'd wait for a good cold snap that is usually best for calling. Make sure you have very good warm gear on.
Are you positive coyotes are there or do they just pass through that area. I'd check for sign/reports if your not sure.
You can kill'em if your not out there

Well I got out couldnt get to the spot I wanted. the wind wasnt right. Did some scouting found some tracks about 10 sets. I think thay were fox small and on top of the knee deep snow remember I live in MN. On the way out I tryed my hand at howlen on my new call (primos hot dog) think it is to loud and I need a lot of practice.
