Welcome to the world of yote calling!
"but i did hear them taunting me on my way out."
What does this mean. On your way from the house to your vehicle or from your vehicle to your 'spot'.
If from your vehicle to your setup......you've been busted!
The next trap to fall into is you've gotta hand at least 25 different calls around your neck. That's mostly for intimidation of other yote hunters you may meet.
A pointer is that when you are without the aid of a second shooter, the yote will come to the call and circle the source of the call and come in with the wind in his favor.
With two shooters or one shooter and an electronic call, place the source of all that noise, 50 yards or so, depending on terrain and cover away from the second shooter.
Ensure max stealth during the approach to the set up spot. Getting busted is pretty easy.
Once you get yotes coming in you'll settle on your techinque. Some blow constantly others infrequently as in every few minutes to every 5 minutes.
The less you're blowing the more apt you are to see their approach.
My experience is that in close cover, shots under 50-60 yards there is less than 2 seconds from seeing the yote to making the shot. There have been many yotes disappear from the scope just as the rifle goes boom.
If you're in the open there is more time to get on the yote, get the jitters prep for the shot. Then the sucker disappears from about 200 yds out and magically reappears at about 20 yards and ya miss anyway.
Keep at it. That magic moment will happen!
Oh, I noticed my luck improved when I camo'd my face and hands. I like the camo head net head cover and gloves. (Keeps the bugs off your face
