I've located them. Now what?
I'm pretty new to calling coyotes, and haven't had any success yet. Today I found what seemed to be a perfect spot. some very large sagebrush draws, small cedar covered ridges, plenty of good places to stay hidden and look out over large areas backed by forest. Start calling, after about 5 min I hear a pack howling from pretty far away. Hit the call again, doesn't seem to phase them so I decide to try and get closer to them. Set up again, start calling, but this time their howls seem a lot farther away. Is there a trick to get in closer? Or is there a calling technique that will bring them in? Or is it just bad luck? How far will a hand call carry?
