    How fast is a coyote when he is in that walk thats covering ground but not alerted or spooked? This seems to be the shot I get alot, especially @ 500 or more. This is probably not the ideal shot to take but on a coyote what the heck? You got to admit it is interesting and challenging!!!

    Do you yell/bark at them to try and get them to stop ?

    I've seen very few that wouldn't stop for a good look back once they feel safe out there.
    If i have a coyote come in from behind or just milling around way out but won't commit -i spin around into a prone position -put the handcall in my mouth -get lined up on the coyote and blow the call as loud as i can -be ready to shoot when it stops for a look.

    I've had them hide behind sagebrush and peek out never offering a shot ,once while laying prone i had one staring from 300-350yds -i curled my leg up and twitched my boot back and forth until it offered a shot -hit a sagebrush limb about 25yds in front of me -oh well.

    Over calling is one of the biggest mistakes made -imo-.

    If you get one leaving out try the call and be ready to shoot when it stops.
