Elkriver, sounds you are doing ok to me, except your set-up spot may be wrong. Evaluate wind direction, and when you call, call in only one direction, and force the yotes to come in the open. (a couple of feathers on a stick works for me so they head for that and don't try to spot me) A remote ctrl decoy is fun. I only hunt them in the daytime. Remember your set-up spot is the most important of all. They see far better at night than we do in the daylight.... good luck

Day/night same rifles and scopes. We use 22-250Ai, 6-284, 243AI, 6x45 and 223 all scoped with illuminated Leupolds 3.5-10 or 4.5-14. At night we like the good old Brinkman varmint special lights(200,000cpl) with the red lenses. mix of FoxPro and mouth calling.

I looked at a rifle the other day which was a 6/284 ? 6.5/284 and I'm thinking about getting one. I don't know much about it yet... whether its considered a magnum or what? Still i got to have a lighter rifle, and getting rid of 2 AR rifles.
