missouri coyotes

I live in north west Missouri (StJoseph) and would like to here from others in my area. We are covered up with coyotes up here but I have noticed that they are getting harder to hunt since the area wal-@#$% started carying predator calls. Anyone else noticed this? I hunt puplic land only so I cant realy control the preasure.

That and all of the predator hunting shows on TV now days. Alot more guys are out there calling them or trying to shoot them from the road.

Learn to howl, they get wise to rabbit distress. I think that howling is better this time of year anyway.

Re: missouri coyotes

I hunt the area between Butler and Lamar MO. I have definitely noticed the change over the last couple of years. The elecronic callers and shows are making it tough. I've tried the electronics and always go back to mouth calls. I get a bigger thrill out of making the sounds that bring em in. Plus, you can put so much more realism into the sounds. I agree with BrentWin, the howl, if used properly can work pretty good, especially when they are doggin. Good Luck!

Re: missouri coyotes

Are you saying you can call them in with a howler? I've never tried it because I've always heard that it does not work. I hunt in eastern Kansas, about 50 miles from the Missouri border, 70 miles south of K.C. This is my first year hunting after about a 10 year hiatus so I cannot compare against recent years, but it does seem like they are not responding very well to either mouth calls or electronic. I've had perfect conditions this year and have had little success. Last weekend I saw one across a field too far to take the shot. He was moving right to left in front of me. I tried my mouth call, he looked over in my direction but just kept moving. I live down in a valley where there are many coyotes. I hear them howling and yapping at each other off and on all night long. I've got several good spots to hunt them on my land and a couple of neighbors property. It just seems like I would have had more success under these conditions.

Re: missouri coyotes

To be honest, I don't know if howling alone works, never tried that. I use a couple howls and barks starting my more open set ups this time of the year. Use the howls sparingly, "less is more". Follow up with some different distress sounds. I think the rabbit is the least effective distress sound in my area. Probably cause the coyotes don't know what it is, hawks keep em so thinned out. Good Luck!

Re: missouri coyotes

The farm i hunt is a little south of Bethany and we have had no luck calling coyotes. We've used rabbit, bird, and rodent distress calls and even coyote vocals but never had anything come in. And we have more than enough coyotes plus some cats but again never called any of them in either. I agree that there is a lot of pressure on them in the area as there have been way more people around the past few years than before
