Re: Summer hunting
Railroader82, I would be very interested in how your coyote hunting efforts turn out. I hunted coyote in Western Kentucky a couple of years ago in an area where the locals said they hear coyotes all the time. I and my partner saw some sign on the trails around there, but weren't able to get anything to come to the calls. Strangest thing, though, on our morning set a turkey kept answering to the coyote calls. Go figure.
I am not an experienced coyote hunter. I found it frustrating that most of the information I was able to find regarding hunting tactics was oriented to hunting coyotes in more open territory in the west. Trying to hunt them in the eastern woods is a whole different ballgame, IMO.
Interestingly enough, my partner killed two beautiful coyotes within just a few minutes of each other while on stand for deer last year. He took a nice buck in the same spot a few minutes later.
