    I start by Halloween when the furs are better and end at the end of Feb when mating season is over.

    I like being in the snow thus I'm out more when there's snow on the ground.

    I go to the same spot as close as morning and evening on the same day and have been successful at both times.

    As to when to come back to an area after you called in, I agree with Roy. Coyotes can have a pretty decent size home area, around 6 sq. miles in some areas. Obviously, if they aren't in hearing range the first time you call you aren't going to spook them. If you do spook them while calling, wait a week or so and go back in with a different call and set-up. A different stand location is a good idea, too.
    As for the second, depends on your location and if you want to keep the pelts or not. I have seen Montana dogs starting to look good the first of Oct. If you don't care about the pelts, get going before the regular hunting season gets underway. The pups are about full grown and are still stupid. Hunting season wises them up, the ones still left. Otherwise, do like Roy does and wait till after Halloween.

    If you are gonna call the same place more than once, don't call from the same spot. Try mixing it up - call from a different section of the field, lie prone out in the field, whatever it takes to throw a curveball at them.

    coyote calling

    I'll go out in early October to build blinds and prepare calling locations.
    The landscape changes from year to year with landowners building new fences, developing land, or breakign new land.
    I build blinds that provide me with comfort, visibility, easy short distance foot access becase I don't want to wast time walking far in the season.
    I like to be in the shade when the sun is shining, and even a cradle for holding my rifle. I carry snippers and clean up shooting lanes of new growth trees and overhanging branches.
    I start calling from Oct 20 - Feb 1
    The full moon nights are great and the full moon daylight hours are worst.
    As the season progresses the calling gets more difficult becuase they're looking for love and more wary.
    I change up my calls ...rabbit distress...chicken distress...jackrabbbit....howls...barks....fawn distress...use a different call each time.
    I wait 20 minutes at each stand early in season and by Dec 1 I'll wait 45 minutes.
    I insure the wind/breeze is in my face and have good visibility of the land downwind. They'll circle you up to a 1/4 mile away.
    Coyotes can smell you up to 500 yards !
    I carry a huge jar of trappers scent formula that I place open downwind to mask my scent.
    Make sure your face is covered in camo screen
    good luck...

    You can hunt the same place time and time again year after year. I can't count the numbers of times that I have called a place in the morning with no takers and then come back and call in a couple later that day from the same spot. If you have a lot of private and controlled places to hunt then you can rotate through them. Most people have to work and such and get to hunt on weekends and the time in between those hunts is plenty enough time to rest an area. If you are calling on public lands, then you might be giving it a two or three week rest, but what about the other 20 coyote hunters that are hunting the same places?

    I start in mid august and go through the end of March and then it is turkey season.

    I hunt yotes all year long, every year, every chance I get. I go to alot of the same spots 2 or 3 times in one day I just use a differ call and differ string of calls. I find some yotes wont come in with one call but I'll go back a couple hours later with another call and they come a running. In cooler times I sit about 20 minutes or less, when its hotter I will sit about 45 minutes. OH, if its warm enough for my kids to handle it we are a fishin too.

    Yep, we hunt dogs pretty much year-round also. Usually start in August and stop around June for coyotes, cats actually have a season out here. I start with mostly prey sounds in the fall, then switch to coyote/cat sounds in the winter, and use bird, fawn, and mating calls in the spring/early summer.

    I've called the same place for coyotes a lot, but not usually the same day. Cats have no memory, so they can be called in the morning, shot at and missed and called in again in the evening. I've done it. Cats are VERY patient, but don't learn much.

    Remember; while coyotes and cats both use their ears...dogs hunt primarily with their nose....cats hunt with their eyes. Keep that in mind and you will do well.

    Good hunting to you!

    I hunt them all year day or night, I don't save many of the hides I just want them thinned out, they have really hurt out groundhog hunting. I think a lot of hunters will make a set up and possibly get busted and then the next couple of times when they call from that spot they feel they have educated the coyotes. I believe that about 75% of the time there are just not any coyotes in hearing and that is why they are not responding if they are 2 miles away your not going to call them in. If you have ever tried to teach a domestic dog anything how often have you done it with just one lesson. In January I called one in and it got downwind of me and and busted across an open field I shot at it and missed. The next evening I called from the same spot and when I was getting up to leave busted again. the 3rd day in a row I called the dog in from the same place and killed it I cannot be sure it was the same yote but it was the same size all three times. The key to killing these things is not the perfect set up or the perfect call its persistence.
