Default Looking for advice.

Although I have hunted coyotes before and frequently shot some from deer stands and turkey blinds, I've never really dug into hunting coyotes. This year, I got a FoxPro Fusion with a TX1000 remote.

I understand that breeding season is starting up (that explains the increased daytime trail cam photos). I am looking for some advice on which calls I should start with on my set ups. My novice mind says I should start with coyote vocalizations rather than food source calls. Should I maybe start with a female challenge bark? Any suggestions would be outstanding.

Thanks in advance.

During the breeding season, I always start with a Female Invitationonal Howl, watch a few minutes, repeat. Then I use a combination of Female Estrous sounds, and a coyote fight or two like the dominant male is kicking one of the young male's butt. They don't have food on their mind now.

What little experience I have ( 40 years +).
I start every set with a female yodel or a female challenge.
Female seam to work on both sexes.
I have almost completely stopped using anything rabbit.
If I absolutely know no one has been calling for a mile around for over a month sometimes I do rabbit distress. Vole, kiss of death are ok.
Pup in distress I play low in between all my Coyote sounds.
I have to be honest I have not worked with any of the bird sounds.

Thanks for the advice. I just checked my call at 60 yards and it works well. I think that'll be a safe distance to start at. I'll post pics if I connect at all. Thanks again.

I used the female yodel and female long howl primarily. However, during the final 20 minutes of my last sit I used the Bay Bee rabbit. That cat was on it in less than 2 minutes.
