well, i just finished my first day of coyote hunting and it turned out just as i suspected...it ended up being another day of scouting but this time carrying a rifle. I ended up having to go around noon because i had to finish up sighting in my dads ole relic .222 rem. needless to say the scope from the 70s was a little finicky to get spot on. i got some calling in but im pretty sure it was just too late in the day for coyotes to be out and about. this is all just theory because i didnt see any but i did hear them taunting me on my way out. i did find some prestine spots to set up stands but ill have to try them out tomorrow bright and early. i did end up clipping a prarie dog in the head right before i made my exit. enough with the story of the day its time to ask the predator pros some questions.lol when you set up a stand how long do you stay? how long do you call for and how much time do you allot between calling sessions? how do you locate coyote dens? everything ive read says set up where you think they are going to be coming from but how do i know where they are going to be coming from? Im sure all these questions make me look like i dont know what im doing and by all accounts that is completely accurate. If any of you have answers to any of my questions that is greatly appreciated or if you have any advice or pointers please share them cause currently im just out there scaring up birds with my distressed cottontail call which is fun but i feel getting a coyote to come running would be even more fun.
