Re: distance between hides
I have moved less than 300 yards to some stands. Wind plays a big role and I make my choices based on how far that call was able to reach. On windless days I sit longer and place more distance between my stands because the sound carries farther. I have found that how I approach my stand and set my self up has more effect on the coyote than calling to close together. Calling usually does not educate the coyote, missing the shot or getting busted when the coyote comes into the cal does. He now know's what awaits him every time he hears that sound. There is no text book set-up, gain as much knowledge as you can than do your best to apply it to your situation.
