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?

Did they wind you? Or see you move? Since coyotes move easier than I do. When they are answering I just try to keep them coming.

I don't think they caught wind, because it was in my face. Its possible they seen me move, but I figured they were so far off and I had some good cover i could get away with it. You think I should have just stayed put and kept calling?

Thats what I would have done. Maybe some of the pro callers on here could chime in with better local knowledge. . Are you rifle or shotgun hunting? What call were you using. ?? Were you able to see down wind. ?

Were you howling or distress calling?

22-250, distress call, could see downwind, I'm wondering if my call was even reaching them. Thanks for your input

Try some howling. Challenge howls, invitation howls. Not too much barking.
I've had them howl quite a bit at my rabbit distress but I didn't know to howl at them and they hung up way out of sight. Howling will break them loose.

When they howl, they are communicating. Its handy to be able to communicate back to them.
