Interesting about the non use of scent cover (I use scent eliminator). Around here the coyotes only come in down wind. You get the odd young pup that doesn't know any better, but most mature dogs will not let you use the wind.
Matter of fact, when I lived in Corpus and hunted that area they were so thick you didn't need cover scent. New Mexico hunting is much easier with cover scent. I have had dogs come in close down wind with scent eliminator but without it I'd be SOL.
