Default Need Advice

I just started calling this February and havenít had much luck, Iíve called in maybe 3 coyotes since then. Iíve called fairly consistently, maybe 2 times a week excluding the summer. I still have had no luck. I hunt in south west Minnesota so itís basically all farmland with a few areas of trees. I sit on the outskirts and call into these areas and seem to have no luck. Iíve tried prey in distress calls and coyote vocalizations and have had no luck with either. The places Iím calling Iím almost certain there are coyotes I just canít seem to draw them out. Most of my calls are in the evening as I donít have a night vision scope. Anybody have any tips to increase my success.

Just one, keep doing what you're doing.
When something works repeat it If it doesn't do something else.
You decide !!!

Do you run any mojo or decoy? Movement could be something to pull those yotes out. I know exactly terrain you are hunting and spend time bird hunting your area, can't say I have spent time for yotes that direction. Lot of open space and using something w movement may pull yotes out of timber strips, I am sure they are moving towards your calls many time but may be held up on cutting open field?

Don't overlook sloughs or cattails sections that are large or even small, good cover to den up. Any irrigation line that is a low spot will be a prime channel for em to move through, if you can use that as a connect point to cover you may be able to pull em down that.

I am only a few years in and same with you, have days where it can be tough. I hunt more up north so cover is the challenge, they can move close to you but getting into an opening is always hard. Can't say any specific call has given me success but there are some good threads on here for starting, finishing, cadence, seasonal tactics, etc.

Assume you are running e-caller?....pick up a hand call and practice, for me I personally feel this is a phenomenal change of pace and pitch. in between or at end of of set I will use hand call for 30 second intervals of very hectic calling with starting light into louder and more frantic. No matter how you do it you will never replicate a sound and if you have educated dogs. few chirps at em from that might be the difference maker for em to commit to cutting distance to you.

last- you mentioned calling consistently. Coyotes are smart, if you are using same call or setting up in same spot or hitting a certain section too consistently I would think those dogs you know are there have become wise to you setting up. Make sure wind and set up spots are to the best you can do. If you are hitting those frequently you may burn out a spot, calls some peeps or door knock, lot of public stuff your way. put some miles on and start creating a log of spot w how you access and call, the more spots you have to slip in and use wind direction to call will definitely minimize the amount of times you educate instead of give a yote a snow nap.

Good luck, share your success!
