Trouble calling in yote?

Our lease is 8K of coastal brush and I have been trying to call some coyotes last year and some this year. The only thing that has responded has been a couple Bobcats. Not that that was bad, but coyotes are thick on the place. I have been using a OLD Stewart casset player. I have been using the wood pecker and the jack rabbit. The very first few times I tried about 10 years ago it worked like a charm.

I bet it's been 6 or 7 years since I last used it, but they are still not coming to it.

What to do?

We also have TONS of coons...what sound would be good for them?

Hmmm....convinces the bobcats but not the coyotes? That's tough, but may be time for a remote caller.

Consider changing to a cottontail, and using a lower volume. If there are lots of coyotes, and you start out really noisy, it sometimes scares them off.

As for coons, well, bird squeaks and frog croakings have worked for friends, but we don't have enough coons around that I even try.

How are you setting up? I like to use a motion decoy of somekind, can be as simple as a wing tied up in the air to flutter in the breeze. Also I like to setup UPWIND from a large open area so they have to expose themselves for a shot if they want to come in from downwind. Start soft and don't call much and work up to loud and calling almost constantly. If they haven't shown up in 45min to an hour, they aren't going to, so it's time to move and try again.

Check the wind. Wind is the key to killing them yotes. Get a mouth call and blow on it.

What calls are you using to try to get them to come in? I was hunting this afternoon and got them to respond but not to come in. I am new at coyote hunting and was lucky the first time out and got one. The second time there was one in the field when we got there, since then no luck at all.

Our lease is nearly flat and the wind very predictable. I try to hunt into the wind on all set-ups. The property is solid brush, so we can only see down right of ways, roads and pipe lines. So the use of a decoy really wouldn't help...they never come out of the brush to see it....

When I set up I turn on the caller and let it play at a medium setting and after about 10 minutes turn it up to wide open. Then back down after about 10 more minutes. That worked the first three times I tried it a several years ago. Called up 5 in three tries.

I have another lease in the hill courty of Texas and the coons (which are thick there too) have come in to the wood pecker call. I called up a Bobcat, coon and fox there using the above method. That was the only afternoon I used the call there too. Not that it right it the only way I know to do it.

I also don't call for very long...30 mintues is about it. I'm I stopping to soon? I had heard Bobcats were slow to respond, so I figured if they show I have been calling long enough.

decide wether you want cats or coyotes to come to your calls. Playing the caller constantly for long periods is good for cats but no so good for coyotes. If you are mainly going after coyotes, call at low to med volume for about 2 min. and then stay silent for 2-3min. Repeat this 4-5 times for a set. A coyote can pin piont you from the 1st or 2nd call and does not need to constantly hear the sound to keep coming. Shoot me a pm about some calls to use.
