Set up on some new ground, was setting up and dropped my FoxPro remote so the foxbang started playing pup screams. Let it play a few and heard a coyote tipping in the next field over. Switched up to TT's the catch. Had a pair come running in, we double tapped the first, no shot at the second. Another nice female

First set again, started with some light rabbit distress with no response. Followed up with a howl with no response. For some reason I decided to play woodpecker distress and had a double come running in hot. One came to our side of the fence while the other veered of towards a thicket. We dropped the one that came out way, another female. Can't seem to get a double in the truck to save our lives right now, but we still working on them.

After a 3 week break because of work and hurricane Michael coming through our area, we finally got back out to hunt a couple of sets. First set we had several talk to us but they were just too far to come in. Second set started with a lone mfk howl. Had a couple way off almost out of earshot answer but nothing close. Used boss yips and howls followed with boss pup panic and brought in a big male that I shot. Fox bang kicked in pup distress again and two more came into the field My hunting partner dropped a female and I missed getting the triple on a running shot. Dogs are really responding to vocals, not any rabbit distress.

Mark and I went after them tonight. First set right at good dark we started with MFK hello howls. After the 3rd howl we had several open up around 200 yards away. We waited a few then gave them some Boss Lippy 1 and that had this female coming into the field to check us out. Bad mistake as the 6mm Creedmoor with 70gr. Sierra Blitz King bullet gave her a dirt nap. #huntingthehunters #atn #predatorparacordcreations #gotbossed

We braved a muggy, humid, foggy night but made the most of it by calling in this female. Used MFK howls, FoxPro whimpers, and Boss pup panic to bring in this one.

Hey GA coyote hunters!

I know this post isn't specifically about a coyote hunt so please delete if not allowed:
I'm a graduate student at Georgia Southern University collecting data for Master's thesis research. My project focuses on heartworm disease, tick-borne diseases, intestinal parasites, and ectoparasites in Georgia's coyote population. Due to rules on the ethical care of animals, as a researcher I'm not allowed to hurt or kill the coyotes, so my data collection relies on awesome hunters like y’all!
Currently, I only have 15 of the 45 (minimum) coyotes that I need. If any of y’all would be interested in donating your coyotes to science I would greatly appreciate it!! All you have to do is record where they were killed and bag them up as quickly as possible to contain parasites like fleas and ticks. Please let me know if you would be interested in participating either on this forum or via my contact info below!

Thanks so much!

Hunted some new ground in north Thomas county. When we got out of truck we heard one being mouthy before we got to the field. Opened up with two MFK howls and got an immediate response with 4 dawgs coming in on a string from across the field. They hung up at about 400 yards and would come no further. As we talked trash with them 3 more showed up. There was an invisible line they would not cross no matter what we did. They barked at us and we gave them Boss Lippy1 back which brought immediate challenges. These dawgs were aggressive and only responded to like sounds. Any submissive sound turned them off. As they started to leave we played Tony Tebbe Border Wars and that fired them back up but would not bring them past that line they wouldn’t cross. All total had 7 dawgs on us for 23 minutes. Got a lot of cool video watching them posture and fake charge.
