    In case you guys haven't noticed I've showed an interest in coyotes my friend told me about this and I thought I'd ask you guys. Ok If I throw a duck decoy out in a field and go nuts on it and it sounds like a injured duck could that entice a coyote?

    My speculation is that it is highly unlikely but you never know. I've called lots of coyotes to a rabbit call and I have blown lots of duck calls in the same area without ever seeing a coyote respond. I suspect that if you could immitate the sound of an attacked duck rather than a duck recognition or feeding call, the coyote might be attracted. We have had several occassions where coyotes came to turkey calls and turkey decoys and actually jumped the decoys... never ducks though.

      How is a decoy going to alert a coyote by you shooting it? Other than him knowing someone's going nuts over there and he better stay away. You could go nuts on an actual dead duck and no sound will be made, but yours. Maybe I misread your post.

        Its worth a shot. Coyotes are very curious, one may take a peek on your operation and you may never know it. But who knows, if your decoy looks real enough and your calls sound enticing enough he just might give you a shot.

          Sounds like a plan, coyotes are curious animals so it would work... but the only downfall is that they are also very jumpy and somewhat smart. You might be able to catch a coyote who doesnt know any better but mature coyotes know not to waste their time with birds that could fly away. But maybe the distress duck call would help with that... but I dont know how you would produce a sound like that? Truthfully, a distressed bunny has always worked the best for me.

            Try it and let us know how it worked. Might break some new ground here.

              I agree with Del. Try it. What've you got to lose? I had one come to my rattling horns during deer season, and my cousin shot one that came to his turkey call last month.

                I don't know the answer to your question about the duck decoy, but maybe this will help with varmint calling in general. My friend and I would work with the wind in our faces, one caller and the other the shooter. We would use #6 monofiliment fishing line and tie a feather or some fur on the end and then go about 30 yards away and start to call. The guy doing the calling was the one who always worked the string to make the fur jump a little bit. It worked great on Fox and to a lesser degree on coyote. Easy to pick up and move to the next stand as well. Good luck hunting!

                  I have had really good luck with a rabbit in destress call. It worked the first time I used it and I thought I sounded like an idiot. They are really cheap and easy to use.

                        We have left out an entire genre or maybe two.
                        Classical piano and opera.

                        Opera:
                        Enrico Caruso - "O Sole Mio"

                        Kudos to MattM37 for the suggestion following Dusty Hill’s passing on Wednesday. We’ll be sure to get to ZZ Top later.
