    Dry run this evening. Called for a solid hour....no show on the yotes. It was great to be out watching the snow fall though. Enjoyed every minute of it.

    Yote59,
    When you say you called for an hour straight, do you mean at one setting or different sets and total calling time?

    The reason I ask is, if you've not gotten a response in 20 min., you're most likely wasting your time and possibly educating the coyotes to your presence...if they're there.
    * Have you tried howling to locate coyotes?
    * Do you know, for certain, that there are coyotes in the area you're calling?

    It's not uncommon to call in 5 or 6 different locations and only see 1 coyote. Just some food for thought. Hope this helps. :)

    I guess it's like fishing. If you killed one every set, it might not be as much fun. Then again, I would like to give that a try.
    You will get them next time.

    Partner for this hunt called in with a sick kid. I will try to go next week. Arkansas has a youth deer hunt this weekend and I am going to try to guide my 9 year old to a big ole slick head.

    Thanks buddy. He has had a good year already. Killed a spike earlier in the rifle season and a really good 8 point a couple of weeks ago. His 8 pt is bigger than anything I have killed in a few years.
    You going to get in a coyote hunt this weekend?

    I'm also in KY, hunt mostly in the central and western part of the state. My buddy and I went friday morn, made several stands and called in only one. It was 11:45 when she showed up. She was his first ever and we had a blast. This yr has been tough hunting in my area, the weather has been absolutely nuts...Best of luck and shoot the hell outta them mouth breathing rabbit eaters...:rolleyes:
