Coyotes are a fitting topic for this thread now, because it's really gone to the dogs! Lol!

I use a howler, for barks and howls, a distress call and a mouse squeaker. I got the electronic caller one winter when it was so cold the mouth calls kept freezing up on me. Learn the calls and the cadence of the calls. Stop a distress call as sharply as you can to mimic a quick demise of the whatever. Predator hunting is really cool hunting and their senses are through the roof. Enjoy and watch downwind! Lol!

I'm not sure how into this I'm going to get. On public land here, coyote season opens on September 1. That gives me a short window of time before season for other things open. Then there is a short window of time after the main seasons close to continue hunting coyote. And it opens again in June during spring squirrel season. On private land there is no closed season, but I've not put any effort into finding any more private land since I lost access to som a few years ago, I've just hunted public land.

In this area, there's squirrels barking, birds, geese honking, and hens yelping in the spring. I've never seen a coyote here, just their tracks and crap, so I know they're here. On other tracts of land further south, I've had coyote come in when turkey and squirrel calling, but I never shot one.

I may pick up some manual calls. I have my electronic call now. It's got a myriad of calls loaded onto it. I am going to use that first.

Just stop responding directly to LFC. Just put him on ignore. There isn't a single thread on this subforum that's been ruined that wasn't ruined by interacting with him (and yes, I was guilty of that, too). He has zero to add to any discussion except attempted insults and argument.

I had for a time................. But I missed the entertainment value of his ramblings.

Besides that, I wanna always be here for him when he's got rookie questions and wants the advice of a seasoned turkey hunter with years of experience in the woods.

Here's my new call.

[Linked Image from i.imgur.com]

I set it up last night on my property and tested the remote from 100 yards. Works perfectly. Damn, you can crank the volume up really high. If my neighbor hadn't been out and seen what I was doing, I might have teased him with it. He's the one who says there is a coyote in our neighborhood. And there may be. Several people have told me they've seen one. I've only seen foxes.

When I unboxed it, I discovered the remote takes a 12v A23 battery. Never even heard of an A23 battery. Had to run down to Ace Hardare where luckily they had some.

You're gonna have fun with that.

Was just talking to my older boy last night. We're gonna get out here some day soon. Labor Day weekend is sorta a coyote hunting tradition for me and him. But I'd like to give it a go or two before that. Maybe go myself but leave our traditional Labor Day honeyhole alone til then.

Only advice you two bozOs couldn't offer would be to a total moron.

I've tried the distress call and the crow & owl. They both sound very clear and authentic. I'm going to load the barred owl call. I've got several on and around my property at night. Should be interesting.

I'm still impressed with the volume this thing puts out.

I went out this morning to plant my trail cam. On the way in, I found half of a turkey wing feather on the trail. It rained earlier in the morning. I didn't see any turkey or coyote tracks this morning at all. The rain may have washed them away. There were some very fresh deer tracks.

I have no idea what kind of tracks these are. They were about and inch long. Funny thing is, it wasn't a trail of tracks, it was just these three in the middle of a big, wet muddy area.

I have my camera at the bend in a trail where I saw most of the coyote tracks last time I was there. I threw out six pieces of left over fried chicken for bait. So who knows.

I flushed some quail on the way out. This place does seem to have a somewhat decent population of quails.

Quail would be nice to see. They're all over where I hunt Rios in Texas. But at home they've been extinct since before my lifetime.............
