    any tips for predator hunting? i have tried it once recently with a mouth blown call (rabbit in distress) and called a coyote in to about 100 yards but didn't have a shot after about 10 minnutes he lost interst and walked away i've thought about a decoy any ideas?

    Sounds like you did pretty well, just had no luck getting an open shot. Try again, but maybe use a little stuffed animal as a decoy.

          You must be doing a lot right to get one up. Don't know if this applies to you but I have found that you can't blow the call again once they are visible. They seem to remember exactly where the call came from even though they were a mile away when you blew the call. If you don't scare them, they will keep working there way in to where the call originated. If you blow again, they will follow it to your lips and you won't get them any closer. You might be able to get them closer with a mouse squeek but I prefer to be QUIET. You can foll foxes and bobcats this way but coyotes can be smart. Also, you can't move a muscle while they are in sight. I also climb trees where I can to get my scent up off the ground. They can pick up your scent about 100 yds away if downwind.

            You did well to call one into sight and have him hang around for 10 min. Unfortunate that he didn't offer a shot. There is a critter decoy that has a battery motor that makes it flop around, might work. Gives the 'yote something to focus on, taking his eyes off you. As stated above, being still and scent control are important as is full camo. Also have heard that barking and yipping calls (coyote) work too, never tried them though.

              you should try a few different calls to see if that works and if not try that with some decoys

                When you set up you should try to get the High ground. Also, If you go with 2 people and have the caller set up below the shooter. I have used both those to get better chances of a clean shot. Don't loose heart though. You are hunting a predator so you'll have to be a better predator.
