Default Locating

Curious to hear everyone’s opinions. When planning a hunt, is it better to locate coyotes after dusk or before dawn?

I hunt big open high desert country.
Listen at night, hit it at first light only to find them a mile away!

My experience, where they are right at can't see is pretty close to where they'll be at first can see. Where they are in between, might be a long way from where they'll be come daylight.

So if I'm locating for the next days hunt, I do it right as it gets too dark to shoot. If I just want to know how many coyotes are around, anytime during the night will do. If I want to know where to setup at first light, I listen before dawn. Note, I said listen. I don't bother to initiate with howling before dawn. They'll make plenty of noise without me prompting them and possibly getting them started my way before I'm ready.

Sometimes we do what we call a run and gun, we'll ride the area stopping in good looking places and Do a locater call to see if we get an answer, if we do we'll sit on it for a few minutes listening if nothing come in we'll mark it on our map and hunt it later. After several times we can begin to narrow down their core area.
