I've duck hunted in this area for several years with some friends of mine. It's always been a good trip and plenty of birds to kill. The amount of birds on these islands is pretty cool Pink Flamingo's Pelicans and almost every shore bird known to man. The sheer number of yote tracks has always had us considering hunting them. This year one of the guys brought a call, and I picked up a box of #4 Buck. While our buddies were cooking lunch, we walked around the island a ways and set up on bluff overlooking a mud flat . I'd say we were about 12 feet or so above the flat. No more than 15 min into the calling she ran right down the flat to the call. She almost got by me and I hit her in the back end before I could shoot her again my Lab Birdie was on her. Luck was on my side and I was able to call my dog off her far enough to let my buddy shoot her again. It's always a rush to call one in but this took the cake, broad daylight, unfamiliar area, my dog attacking a crippled yote., and it all working out just right

Hunted a cattle company property that has lost some calves and calving cows to coyotes. At second set we set up in a pasture with cows laying down. I put the caller out and all the cows stood up. Walked back to our tripod setups and started calling with some eastern cottontail. Immediately down on the woods line a coyote breaks cover. At the same time the whole heard of cows comes over to check out my CS24C Foxpro caller. They actually get between my caller and the coyote. As I watched with my thermal they got danger close to my caller and I had to run retrieve it before it got trampled. The cows ran off and so did the coyote. Second set we put our backs to a lot yard and called across another pasture. Dadgum if a dawg did not come up through the barns in the lot yard and backdoor us. We have had the worse luck. Out of 7 dawgs called up since January 2nd, we have only killed 2.

After a dead first set we went across the road to another field. Upon entering we scanned the field and a coyote was already in the field. He made us and eased over to the woods and disappeared. We continued through that field to another field and walked about 400 yards down a fencerow and set up. FoxPro Eastern Cottontail had a female charging hard after 15 seconds. She came in to around 30 yards and I took her with my thermal and 6mm creedmoor. We trekked back the 400 yards and scanned the first field and that coyote or another had come back out into the field. Eastern cottontail was played again and brought the male to about 100 yards and Mark killed him with his 4k and 6mm creedmoor.

Killed 2 yotes on 3 sets
First set for about 45 minutes with no action. Over to next spot just down the road and howled and young male snuck in at 50 yds. Final set a group of yotes were sounding off to squeaking from the truck. Went down and turned around and parked. Set up on bottom of field and scared that group off. Few minutes later heard some more and one male broke off from pack answering female howl. 86A00F16-5196-406D-A3B4-01C0F9C56071.jpeg 30AF9B05-7A70-4157-ACB6-C247247B6099.jpeg 1D1851C1-12F7-4098-96C5-2C304E104EF5.jpeg

Trying to help a guy with coyotes on his game camera. We set up on his food plot and opened with some howls. Got an immediate response. Switched to Tony Tebbe border wars and after a minute or two we had a coyote show up at the edge of the food plot. It would not come into the plot but instead went back into woods and circled us. It never would stop for a shot.

Hunting a property that has produced 7 dawgs since September. Played a little light eastern cottontail and had this female circling around to us. Mark got a bead on her and shot her with his 6mm creedmoor topped with his 4k. The dawg ran off and made it to the woods. We continued calling for a bit and then went to look for her. Finally found one drop of blood and kept tracking till we found some more. Finally tracked her down and recovered her.

Went for a morning set just at day break. Started with a few female howls, then switched up to some rabbit distress. Had 1 come out on the edge, but he saw something he didn't like and never would close the distance.

Really quiet night, hunted some spots we haven't hit in a few months, but it was just dead. Did call in a red fox on one set and a gray on another but the yotes just didn't want to play

Do you hunt them at night only to be successful. Is there any bait used for sent.
Coyotes and other predators are largely nocturnal and more active at night. We do not use baits or scents. We use electronic callers using coyote vocals and prey distress sounds to call them in.

We hunt the Hunters. Once we start calling we become the Hunted and have to beat a Yote at his own game. They are killable 24 hours a day. I have the ability to night hunt so I hunt more then because it doesn't interfere with work

I hunt mostly at night because Coyotes are more likely to come out in the open at night. They will come to a call during the day, but you have to get in the thickets where they feel safe to have much success.

I'll stop and hunt on the way home after hunting with my buddie on occasion. Hunted a track near the house that is in a populated area, it usually always has a yote or 2 on it. Called one in but didn't shoot it couldn't be positive it was a yote when it was in range. Never want to shoot someones dog by mistake

Started off with a few blank sets, on the 3rd set of the night started off with a few female howls. Had a pack in the distance respond, played TT's showdown for about 4 minutes, right after muting had a black yote pop out about 250yds. Switched up to pup distress and he skirted around us about 175 yds, he was down in a hole and I tried a long head shot but missed. Very next set started withe a female howl again and the woods lit up all around. Went into Eastren cottontail and had one come up the edge and skirt around us in the woods. Never offered a shot

Walking to first set we had a pair come out of a drainage ditch about 75 yards in front of us. The male just watched us as we set up but the female went back in the ditch. We got tripods set up and took the male with a coordinated double shot. Called that stand anyway and called female back to us with eastern cottontail. She circled downwind and we tried a long shot before she got in our wind but we missed her. Second set we started with some howls but got no response. Played rabbit but nothing bit on it either. Went from rabbit right into fight sounds and after a minute of that we had a pair hard charging to us. We cut the caller off and the male pulled up and Mark took her with his 4k. The female took off and I was able to take her on the run with my thor.
