Also good info...with experience you can read body language, but sometimes, you just don't know what to expect. Here's a video of my partner calling in a pair by himself. First spotted out beyond the farthest wind mill, and he never called again. You could tell by the body language, that they assumed the sound came from the grass in between their original location and the shooter. This let them stop short and start to look for what they heard.

Here's a situation that was similar, but you can tell these dogs already had a pretty good idea where the noise was coming from, so they were starting to circle. My cousins set up in a spot that allowed them to protect their flank, so that if/when a coyote did circle...it was actually circling right into their lap. Fortunately, the prediction worked. Since they were concealed VERY well. The 2nd coyote didn't really run from genuine fear of death, but more of being startled from the strange sound of the suppressed shot, and so it stopped to look back, even without the need of a (tried and true) "pup in distress" call

And finally...this situation was unique. We set up overlooking a wetland that had been relatively dry during the summer and expected coyotes to come out of it. We did NOT expect 7 to come charging out on a dead run directly at us with the call blaring on full volume. SO LOUD IN FACT, that when we tried to bark, to intentionally stop them...they couldn't hear us or didn't care. at about 3:25, the call is the very darkest black spot so you can tell, these guys were also trying to get downwind...but it was more of a dead sprint down wind, as opposed to a general "circle". When shots ring out in this video...coyotes SCATTER, but the "pup in distress" sound causes the last one to slam on the breaks and look back one last time. A fatal mistake.
Point of the whole long post....you just never really know so you gotta try and plan for the highest probability based on the wind and how the terrain looks.

I am still shooting up a huge stock of 85 grain SGK HPBT over H100V. Works good. Not to bad on the fur either unless you hit the shoulder.

When those are gone I will be trying the 62 grain Varmint Grenade.

Cool videos, c_bass
