Start off calling softly in case there are any in the immediate area so they don't get spooked. A locator howl isn't the best this time of year as most females are really hungry right about now. Try a rabbit squeel first or some small critter call to get their mouths watering. Are you going to carry a side arm?

We are hunting with ar15's. Probably won't have any sidearms. My brother bought a fox pro electronic call so that's what we'll be using.

Only call I have ever used is a wounded rabbit  mouth call never have used electronic calls. I have had good luck and pulled em in from a mile out (remember they got good ears). Check the wind and watch each others backs. Had a friend go out alone an got jumped on by a bobcat  :eek:, course the cat jumped off pretty quick when that 165 # rabbit started screaming  ;D

We try to give them a break this time of year.

They have pups in the spring, and I don't want to kill their mommas and cause them all to starve to death in the den!

If your intent is to eradicate them all from the earth, go for it.

But we like to see a new crop every spring so we got them to hunt the rest of the year.

First tip: ditch the fauxpro and buy a real caller!

second: coyote vocals (locator call) works all the time. It creates a territorial response.

Wow.

That's harsh. Mine works fine, and plenty of others have success with them.

You want to add some suggested models, brand, techniques ?

I get out as often as I can but not nearly as much as I would like to! That thing called work keeps getting in my way!

I have killed 6 this years so far. I like using my 243 for them during the day but at night but at night I gear up a bit.

Always keep your eyes moving. I've had hawks swoop at me thinking I was an easy meal. I've also had deer check me out. A rabbit distress sounds similar to a fawn. Last fall I had a nice 8 point within 5 yards trying to figure out what I was and what was going on.

Never hunted coyote. It does sound like fun and a service to the community. What do you do with the coyote once you kill it? Do you bury it or just let it be eaten by buzzards?
