Coyote Hunting Canis latrans. Ky'ote. Ky'otee. Whatever you want to call it, it's one of the most popular predators hunted in the world today.

Default No success

We’ve been hunting predators in central Texas for about 10 years now. We’ve never had any great success calling in any coyotes during the daylight hours. Our go to sound on our foxpro has always been baby cottontail and for the past 1 1/2 years it hasn’t really worked great for us. Any suggestions on getting the coyotes in during daylight hours? TIA

Welcome to the FoxPro Forums. The proper set up of your stands is more important than the sounds. That said, try different sounds. Just like fishing. If one lure or bait isn't working, try another lure.

We feel we do everything properly, check wind, try not to spook anything and keep an eye on our down wind side. We choose locations that look like prime spots but never have a lot of success. We’ve tried wide open areas, tight locations with a lot of cover, etc. we’ve tried a lot of different sounds (Crazy Critter, Mrs. McCottontail, bay bee cottontail, mom and baby cottontail, woodpecker distress, starling distress) just to name some.

Have you scouted the Areas to be sure they are holding Coyotes? you mention "tight Set ups" One of my biggest Problems starting out was setting up in the exact areas Coyotes would come in at, once I figured out the most likely route for a Coyote to come(especially in tight set ups) it upped my percentages....

Good point, hilonesome ! Our areas are heavily pressured. Open areas are okay right after the pups leave the den, but as the season rolls on the tighter places pay off.
