Re: How Bout Some Tips on Yote Calling.

Man, I am getting my butt kicked at this. But I will stay with till I figure out what I am doing wrong.

Yesterday morning I woke at 5am to 6" of fresh snow and it has been cold all week. I headed out to where I know there are yotes. 2 miles from where I was going to make the first stand,, big ozark hill, non graded country road and this area got 1/4" of ice under the snow. My 3/4 ton 4x4 spun out 1/2 way up the hill then promptly slid backward off the shoulder of a steep bank.

I walked to the nearest farm house at first light. While I was talking with the farmer at the back door I spotted 3 yotes playing grab azz (breading season) about 700 yards behind his house. I was invited in for coffee and we contacted the county to see when they would plow the road so I could get my truck out. They said afternoon.

It was now 9:00 and the yotes had been gone for 2 hours. The farmer told me to get my stuff and go get em. I walked back to the truck, got my rifle and caller ( FP Fury) and headed in. I was very cautious. Stayed in the trees next to a creek and the wind in my face. About 500 yards past where we last seen the yotes. I set up. Caller 100 yards in an open field, me in a brush push pile, called for 15 or 20 mintues using rabbit distress calls. Nothing.. from any direction. I waited another 10 min. packed up and headed in further.

I found where the 3 yoted had come back this way and hunted a large strip of brush in an open valley. I put the caller in the edge of the brush and stood in the edge of the timber between some trees. I was well hidden. This time I used rabbit distress, then woodpecker and then waited for 15 minutes and tried some Fem yote howels and whimpers. Nothing.

I packed back to the truck, it was now noon. The county showed up at 2:00 and plowed the road then gave me a pull with the road grader. I headed to the spot I was origionally going for an evening hunt. Sitting at the gate at 3:30 I spotted two yotes go over a hill about 1/4 mile in. I packed up and went in. There were 3 big hills between me and the yotes with wooded brushy draws coming up to a point near the top of each hill. I moved slowly. Set up at the point of each draw and tried to call the yotes using the same sounds. Nothing.... I sat where I had spotted them till sunset just looking and tried some fem yote howels and whimpers at last light. Then even tried the locator...... no answer.

Sorry for the long post, and thanks to anyone that reads it and can lend some advice. I have been out several times on many stands and I know yotes are in the area. I must be doing something wrong..... wrong sounds? to Loud ? (I start low and work up then back down to finish) Day calling tough??

My legs are sore today from several miles of snow and ice walking. But I will not give up. I am heading up to Iowa this weekend to my old stomping grounds where I took many many yotes with hounds.

If you are a successful caller please lend your thoughts or advice!!

Thanks! Jeff

Re: PLEASE!! How Bout Some Tips on Yote Calling.

i guess the only thing you could try is a male challenge howl and try to piss them off ,act like ur there to take their girls from them, but by the way it sounds that probly wouldnt work either. i figured the rabbit distress would be a sure thing hands down. stay with it........

Re: PLEASE!! How Bout Some Tips on Yote Calling.

I have no experience with e-callers. I can think of a few situations where I think that they would really work well. I am wondering if you are calling too loud with it. Coyotes can hear really well. I get them to come in from quite a ways with mouth calls that I am not blowing loud at all. You might be calling too much to. Make sure that you wait two or three minutes between series of calls. I live where I can see the coyote’s way farter than I can shoot them. I also know that if one rabbit call does not start to bring them in when I blow it another different sounding rabbit call will sometimes. Try to call where you think there has not been a lot of hunting pressure. Do not give up and keep after them. I was not very successful at all when I first started calling coyotes. There are a lot of guys that are better at it than I am.

Broz that is a really cool picture of the hounds and coyote in the pipe. I used to have hounds out here in CA, but lost everything I owned in a flood a few years back. I just posted The Rainy Day coyote post. You can see every thing I take coyote hunting in that picture. Really try to call where you think no one else has. I have better luck at new spots, than at ones that I hunt all the time.

Benlow, I REALLY miss my hounds. Just can't have them living where I do now. Sorry to hear about your loss. I am sure I am calling virgin grounds. I will check out your post.

Thanks!

Jeff
