Re: Nevada Coyote techniques?

In NV its mostly all public land.
As of now, I'm only using a mouth call, and I ONLY have a distress rabbit (kinda under-equipped ) When I do call, however, crows come in, which from most of the other forums I read is a good sign to how real the call sounds.

If I had a FoxPro I'd be alot more confident in my calling and I would glass longer, but when I sit for 30mins with no sign whatsoever, the confident fades.

What model do you have? I'm looking at a FoxPro Firestorm atm too

Re: Nevada Coyote techniques?

I have the older FX series. Have had it for a couple years.
I too began mouth calling.. and still do. I keep several in the pockets of my huntin jacket cause you never know... batteries die and electronics fail. Sometimes back to basics has real advantages! If you are calling in crows, hawks, owls and such your sound is good enough.
The trick is seeing them before they detect you and being persistent! Don't get discouraged , the first one is the hardest.

Especially if you don't have an expeirienced hand to show you the ropes. I was lucky. I killed my first at 7or 8 yrs old. My dad and uncle have about 60 yrs experience and I remember falling asleep in brush piles on moon lit nights to the sound of a dying rabbit.
My dad bought a very early model Thompson Contender pistol in 223 and affixed a cut off stock + leupold scope for me before most kids got their first BB gun.

Re: Nevada Coyote techniques?

Heres a pic of a very early bobcat called in. Sorry bout the quality..its old. No thats not a huge cat... I was very small... Not yet the 6'2" & 190 lbs I am now. Lol
So don't get frustrated I had a 20 yr. Head start and great teachers.
Wish I was closer..always love to take new guys out and show em the ropes!
And I still get skunked occasionaly.. I did in my last predator tournament as a matter of fact.

Re: Nevada Coyote techniques?

Ah, Very nice, A bobcat is on my list of trophies I'd love to have, Aswell as a couger.
Im very young, ( under 18, hope its not a crime of this forum) but i hope you can respect that I'm not as ignorant as other kids.

I began hunting with my father, but I no longer live with him so I have to learn new things myself. Which is somewhat a challenge but I get pride out of my success doing it. At 15, my mom bought me a remmy 700 ( love her to death haha )

I only have ONE distress cottontail call, should I get multiple calls? I was thinking a howler or distress 'yote

Re: Nevada Coyote techniques?

Sure get two or three, see what works for you. At 10-15 $ ea. Why not.
The cool thing about predator hunting is the accessability. You can find em every where. Whatever gun you have will work. ( calls, decoys, dedicated rifles, lights and gadgets) are cool and one of my down falls but essentialy unessecary. Just get out there and eventually you'll cross paths with one.

Hey and congrats on having the desire to get out of the house and hunt! Young hunters are awesome
