That's kinda what I figured, just based on the country I saw in the south east. I'd guess that callers there educate more coyotes than they realize just because they can't/didn't see them. Once they've become educated (even out here in the wide open spaces) it's much harder to get them to come out of cover to check out a sound. The smart ones will just stay there in the cover and watch. Having a decoy dog on the set helps alot to give them something to look at/feel comfortable about coming out in the open............so long as they haven't been chased/run with packs of dogs
