I got to my hog hunting spot this evening right at dark to play a coyote locator for in the morning. I stopped in the road where I was going to play it and a coyote started howling not 200 yards from me where I couldn't see it. I fell to the ground and pulled the caller out and put it varmint al's 16 min sequence and let it play for about a minute. Waited another minute and coyote didn't show. I turned my head and put it on coyote locator and when I turned my head back it was standing exactly where I hoped it would. But it was so dark I wasn't sure if it wasn't just a dark spot in the road. I pulled the scope up and decided it was a coyote and I was going to shoot. About that time he started off and I had about 1 second to shoot and missed it. I hateeeee doing that and educating them.
So I've came home and started reading up on call wise coyotes and realized that coyotes mate exactly at this time of the year and that it's really successful to use female coyote mating whimpers and howls but I can't find an mp3 for it and don't have a mouth call. I downloaded the dominant male challenge and now I need a female mating call to go with it. If I can find one I'll bet I can get a yote in the morning in a different spot that is loaded with them.
