S.C. Coyote help getting started

Looking for guidance on getting into coyote hunting. I have access to multiple paces to hunt, plenty of coyotes and an accurate rifle, either a 7-08 or a .223. Most locations are either 20-30 acres fields, cut overs , or power line right of ways. I don't think there will be many shots over 300 yards. What i don't have is a clue on calls, techniques, or other info needed to do it right. I would rather purchase the right call and gear the first time but not looking to spend $1000's of dollars. Any help would be great, thanks.

This guy knows a thing or 2 about calling coyotes. I have been to one of his talks. Of course he makes and sells calls for a living, but he also "lives it". I have not yet bought his video series but I probably should.

Re: S.C. Coyote help getting started

It's hard to cover a lot of basics in one post. I'd recommend looking through a series of articles I've written for LRH. Many of them are now posted on our website. The biggest deal in coyote calling is the set-up so pay particular attention to that. If your approach is good and you have a good set-up, the sound is less of a factor.

Her is a link: Predator and Varmint Hunting Gear Specialist | No Off Season - Articles & News I think you'll find some helpful information.

As far as calls go, FoxPro is excellent with great CS. FoxPro's Firestorm or Hellfire are probably the best balance of features and value in their line. I'm running the FP Shockwave. It's excellent but more than you need to get started. The Primos Alpha Dogg caller has good volume and a good remote for the money. A good hand call will get you started as well.

Here's a link to some callers: Electronic Calls

Let me know if I can answer any questions after you get a chance to go through some of that info. Good luck!

start off with a $10.00 closed reed distress there easy to use just blow on it they work. stay away from e callers until you get 5 to 10 kills, then you will understand how to use them better. when you do get ready to by don't spend more than $150.00.
pm me I will send you a free camo shirt and hat to get you started. any gun will kill a coyote. google charles shawley coyote 101 and read up on what makes the coyote react.

good luck

Re: S.C. Coyote help getting started

Tried my Shockwave for the first time yesterday. I knew there were yotes there from the farmer. But had a tough setup. Horses in the wrong spot, knee deep crusted snow, and such a white out you couldn't really see horizon. At least that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

The bugger was looing at me before I was ready cause I moved. But he was making a B-line for my wiggling decoy.

I'd swear he had Hyena in him cause he laid down just over the crest of the snow and laughed at me with only his nose to ears showing.

Back to the range, I shoulda had em. GRR

40 + yrs ago I bought a $18 accordion call (almost cause an early divorce) ha, but I shot a lot of yotes with my 22LR and never wounded one.

So about anything works. It's about concealment. Have fun, take a body guard along LOL cause they come running.
