Default New to coyote hunting, need help.

Im new to coyote hunting and I have a few questions. I bought a Foxpro spitfire and while I now the basics of the distress calls I would like to learn about the coyote sounds, such as when I should use what sound and what application I should use it for. For example what coyote sound should I use in febuary during beeding ect. Lastly, I would like to know what my calling sequence should look like. When using a distress call should I run it for 2 or 3 minuets and then shut it off for a few more minuets, watch and then repeat or should I run it for the full 20 minuets Im on stand. For your convienence I have attatched all the sound preprogramed sounds on the call so you will know what sounds Im working with. Hopfully I will be able to get out and use my call for the first time this weekend.

Default Howling during mating season

I use howlings mainly during mating season (mid January till end of February).
I start with female invitation for a few minutes and stop for 5 min. Do it again. If nothing shows up, I switch to challenge howls for a while. Before I leave, I always do some pup distress. If more that one come, always do some pup distress after shooting the first one to get the second one to stop or come back. In the east, I never had any respond or success during the day. Good for me only early mornings or at sunset.
Easier to hunt with rabbit distress. Harder to make mistakes. I always call for about 30 second bursts and wait a few minutes. I like to listen and let them search for me. If you see one far away, attact it with a mouse squeaker a few seconds.
Watch my latest video to see what I mean :
Rifle: Tikka T3 Varmint stainless 22-250
Ammo: Hornady Superformance 50 grains V-max
Scope : Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16 X 50mm
