    From seconds to half an hour. I was sitting in a deer blind when a 'yote appeared out of muzzle loader range. I had no calls so "squeaked'" some on the back of my hand. It was 45 minutes later before he came within about 20 yards. Bad mistake!

      I've had them come in within two minutes of a set and I've coaxed them in for nearly an hour. Our baseline set averages between 15 and 20 minutes, we run longer if we see one at range and will change call sequences to try and get it into a feasible rifle range. Of course we hunt the prairies of eastern Montana so on many instances we can see them a mile away with binos.

            I stay about 1/2 hour before moving on.

              I typically will change locations if one doesn't come in within 45 minutes.

                I'll go with the 45 minute rule. I have had them come running at the first squeal, and I have had some wily old dogs sneak and sulk around for 30 minutes or more. Should one ever throw up his head and leave the county, give up and move, you have been busted!

                    Usually you see them approaching on the run within seconds but it pays to wait. This year, the longest holdout came in after 45 minutes of continuous calling. I called a fox last year for about a half hour and gave up. My brother drove out to pick me up and as we pulled onto the road, a fox was coming down the middle of the road in hot pursuit of whatever was making the noise.
