    I recently got back from TN and both landfills we worked at had yote tracks everywhere. They must have run at night because we never saw them.

      A screaming cottontail rabbit predator call, cover scent and full camo. Facemask and all. I use a .223 rifle, but have used a .22 LR and it worked fine with well-placed short-range shots. Learn to blow the call and you will have the time of your life. Good Luck!

          Get some calls and practice, watch some coyote hunting shows, some good how to dvd's out there. If you already own a rifle or shotgun for deer hunting they will work just fine, you can always get a specialized gun on down the road if you decide. More than anything, get out in the field, the more you do, the better you will be at doing.............

              Choose a location that contains adequate coyote habitat. Do some preliminary research to find out the location of coyotes. Coyotes tend to travel and bed in heavily wooded areas, creek bottoms and other low lying areas for concealment. These areas often provide plentiful food sources.

              Set up in a position where you have good visibility of the terrain. Use camouflage and shadows of trees and brush to conceal your silhouette. Coyotes are very good at pin pointing where noise is coming from at long distances. Often coyotes will circle potential prey to use wind to there advantage. Apply a cover scent to prevent coyotes from smelling you and potentially spooking it away.

              Use distress calls of cottontail, jackrabbit, woodpeckers, or other small prey. Mouth calls and electronic calls are available at most hunting supply stores. Start a calling sequence about as loud as you normally talk. Continue for several minutes and then gradually increase the volume if you have not spotted a coyote. The first calling sequence should last five to eight minutes. Observe in silence for two minutes and repeat calling sequence if needed. Coyotes usually respond aggressively to calls within the first ten minutes if they are within hearing range.

              Coyotes can usually hear distress calls a half a mile to a mile away depending on wind speed and terrain. If no coyotes respond to your calling sequence, move to another location down wind at least a thousand yards away if possible. Start calling sequence over as before.

              Hope this helps boomer1 ...

                Full camo gilli suit, eletronic calls, rifle/scope combo(long range/.222,.223)shotgun(12ga.short range), vids. and a little luck don't hurt either.
                Good luck and good hunting !

                    You can get a scent killer kit at wal mart that has the clothes soap and dryer sheets, shower soap and shampoo, deotorant, spray, and chapstick for like 20 bucks... well worth it.. I live in Chattanooga BTW. I use a Primos double cottontail, double jackrabbit, and the primos third degree, which is just a extra loud cottontail call. then get at least one coyote howler.. i love my Knight n Hale one.. Those are the only 4 calls i have and dont think i have ever needed anything else.. if you have alot of land your best bet is to stalk and kinda be on the move.. If you dont have alot of land, set up a nice blind or something to conceal yourself, put bait out every night for 2 weeks.. if possible set up a game cam so you can see what direction they come from and what time.. on the 15th day, set that bait out and if your not using a game cam, get in the blind and wait, if you are using a game cam, get in your blind about 2 hours before they come thru.. i use a Remington 870 express with a 3000 lumen light on it.. FULL CHOKE with #4 buckshot.. ive dropped one at about 65 yards with that setup.. rifle wise, anything light and accurate..
