Default setup advice

I have been trying to call coyotes for about six years now off and on, two years ago in the spring I called two in on seperate occasions,since then nothing.I have tryed everything with no luck,the only thing I can think of is my setup is way off and I'm getting winded.I'm using a wildfire call and mojo critter decoy.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks

try some loud bird calls, or some of fxp domestic calls. call shy critters are usually not used to hearing these sounds. Even a crow in distress works. One time back when we used cassettes I had a red fox actually run across a field and actually jump on the caller bag, we were crow hunting and it was pretty cool to see the show.

I think if you have some unusual calls you should try them, I use chicken distress a lot. Have you tried cross wind set-ups? I prefer them, call left or right 20-25 yds about 30-40 yds out so when they get downwind they are in front of me.
Hope this helps.

Thumbs down

Thanks for the advice.I done two stands today both 30min with no luck but it's possible there wasn't any in the area.One thing I'm wondering though is when I call should I be paying more attention downwind than anywhere else?or do they usally come from anywhere?

Wind seems to be the most important, but everywhere is different and the terrian really changes things. Setups that can be down wind of where you think the action will come from and use your terrian to your advantage for backing on setups. Water or rough rock to your back or even open area that yotes have to go around and expose themselves for shots.

I like the High volume calls and here in Canada they dont seem to care the louder the better to them. Ive had them near hit the Fury when a Jack call is on 40.

Good luck with it...

Expect them to show up where you don't expect them. They can be very unpredicatable.

I have to agree with JMAC, they are going to show up where you dont expect them to. But Adrian is on to something as well. I always try to keep some type of open terrain on the down wind side of my setups. Coyotes want to get down wind of you if possible, they really dont like exposing themselves more than necessary to do it, and you should be able to spot them before they get down wind. I never look down wind or behind me, if they get down wind of you they are going to smell you and be gone. Make them get in the open before they can get down wind.

Set up is everything ... stay low move slow and put the caller in the middle of your opening , I like my caller 75 - 100 yrds out , hang it on a branch or fence post if possible ... try and keep the sun behind you when your calling , and most importantly get in the shade and try and be elevated before turning your caller on , keep an eye out on saddles , and low terrain , if there is a ditch like terrain beware ... It has become my belief that something will come to see whats going on you just have to be able to spot it and that alone has led to more kills , if you believe they will come !!!
