Re: new at coyote hunting

Welcome to what is sure to become a lifelong passion. There are lots of good calls out there, I like the randy Anderson calls by Primos, but the E.L.K calls are good also. Everyone uses distress calls and they do work, but if you want to up your odds learn to howl. Camoflauge is important, all those gee wiz patterns will work, just insure you wear a face mask and GLOVES. When you move your hands to shoot is when they spot you. Scent control is also important, but if they get down wind your screwed. Plan your setup, cause no matter where a yote comes from he will try to get down wind of you. This is where a MOJO decoy comes in handy. If the decoy is out there where they can see it hopefully when they cut down wind, they only go down wind of the decoy and not you. Until your hooked just use whatever rifle your best with. You can get a wiz bang laser gun that you don't really need later. We all think of the long shot, but chance are you won't see it until it's right in front of you. Something fast handleing is prefered, I'm really taking a shine to hunting with the AR-15. Shooting stix are also really handy, stoney point collapsible ones are great, but you can also just make a pair. I've never hunted Oregon, mostly the mid west, but these were a few lessons I've picked up.

Re: new at coyote hunting

Other than location and the above mentioned calls.My only advise is to go often and try to learn something everytime you go out!

But an oldtimer once told me........The skill aint in callin em.The skill is in shooting em!

Movement will blow your cover more than anything.
Be absolutely as still as possible.
Bark with your voice and they will stop, be ready to shoot when they do.

Re: new at coyote hunting

I’ve hunted the Idaho and Oregon border(s) in the North West region for about 15 years. It's a great area for the new yote hunter(s), lots of dogs and they still come to most any calls.
I would agree the AR family of weapons is the ticket for fast movers and multi-yote in counters.
I used a M4 with Acog 3.5x35mm 65gr. Sierra GK at 3100 fps with great results; but my best setup is an older; and in mint condition Remington M760 in 223 Rem with an older refurbished Redfield five star 4x12 scope, next too my long gone H&K 630 in .223 Rem; the M760 is the best... That pump never jams; works every time I pull the trigger’…, hot or cold weather, with any load.
As for a call’…, the old “Herbs Howler” was the best I ever found… made from cow’s horn with a reed…. Don’t believe their around anymore, to bad great call. Back that up with an; Olt M-22 dual range predator call; let the games begin.

I am also trying to learn more about calling. Can you go into more detail about howling? What technique works well for you? How often? Just howling? Barking?

Thanks in advance
