yup and lucky to have so much hair on my top knot (I'M BALD ON TOP NOW) . I started chasing accuracy a long time ago for clean kills and at that time factory ammo had some to be desired in that department they have also come a long way . Factory rifles needed some help also it was hard to find a good builder and I couldn't have afforded one back then any way so started studying and learning to help myself with it .

101stCurrahee , If you would like to see how some coyote respond to the call in Wyoming you can watch Powder River Predators long range coyote dvd . they aren't professional videogrifers but do have some good footage of coyote behavior around Gillett Wy. spring summer fall and winter as well as some of the calls they use .

They are definitely coming in on a call now. I guess the fox pro was just overused in the area? My cheap hand call has them screaming in.

Hand calls have several advantages they don't sound the same with you blowing them as they would with me or any one else blowing them , they have a wide range of tonal frequencies , the volume changes and most people don't over call with them . It's so easy to call too loud and too long with e-calls . when any animal is in distress they can only scream for so long before they run out of breath and have to rest, even if they don't die before they can start over again.

Went out this morning to call in a Coyote or two.
Made 3 stands using a KI-YI hand call, mainly with the reed not the mouth piece.
Used a Lone Howl, Challenge Bark, and Pup in Distress calls.
When I started this stand there was no wind on the hay field, no luck.
Stood in the shadows of a round bale and glassed.
Not seeing any movement I decided to make a move, made two steps and to my surprise a Coyote was sitting there looking at me.
When it registered that it was a coyote he ran into thick brush.
Score me 0, Coyote 1.
This was at 10am, warm and sunny conditions.
Learned a big lesson.
First Coyote that I ever called in in a pasture that gets a bit of pressure.
Next time I will also bring out my wounded razblit call too.
Learned a lesson, called in my first coyote so to me that makes me a winner.

PBR Driver did you use all those sounds at the same stand ? Wyocoyotehunter , yes I have noticed that the coyote lay low around golden eagles I don't think they like becoming prey to the goldens .

PBR Driver, bring your bino's, with many a time when no coyotes are seen, you can scan with bino's and spot one sitting there looking at you or coming from a long ways off.....

I can't count the times that I have stopped calling and just sat for several minutes just looking around and seen coyote just setting or laying looking at my stand site . You may be just outside of their territory and they don't want to cross over into the others area or they may just feel uncomfortable with the situation . May be they saw you move , or they may have heard that sound or it may be a little loud for them . Several times I have waited up to 20 minutes or more just looking in their direction , not straight at them , before they would move in my direction or start to mark their territory then leave . Often it seems like they are frozen as they don't even twitch just set or lay watching that is where after you have seen a few of them doing this that you learn to pick them out of the back ground as being what they are . This is an art that you learn with time and experience . You can be told of it and read about it but doing it is the best teacher for learning how to do it . Often you will feel that you are being watched then find that you are when you take the time to just look around . What an interesting world we live in .

Eye exercises, are HUGE deal maker for hunting. I learned this shooting trap, daily eye exercises up your game in spotting prey and keeping good vision as you age.. Just like lifting weights up your physical ability, eye exercises work the same way.

I have a friend that teaches pistol shooting . He was a SEAL sniper instructor and has a few on YOUTUBE . he also says eye exercises are very important . If you want to look up Chief Chris Sajnog on youtube then find the brock string and it's use as one form of eye exercise there are many more that help also .
