    I have been doing a lot of coyote hunting lately, and it isn't going to well. I just cant seem to call very many in. I have called in 3 since the start of December, and I have made way more sets than that. I know there are coyotes in the areas that I am hunting. I always play the wind. ( always making sure that I can see downwind too. ) I wear camo from head to toe and sit at the base of a bush to break up my outline. I set up in the shadows to minimize the coyotes seeing me. I don't overcall. my entry routes are hidden from where I think the coyotes are. The calls that I use are a primos double dog, buck gardner ultimate coaxer, quaker boy e z howler plus, a quaker boy super screamer, and a flextone mimic. I also have a primos sit n spin. do you have any suggestions of what I am doing wrong or how I can improve my odds?

    I am not an expert but would say set up in different places. If a lot of other hunting pressure they may be more skittish. Stay 30min to 45min and if nothing move 150 to 200yds if possible. You might cut back to just a couple calls and see if that makes a difference. Also, the odds might be better at night, first light and last light. The TV shows have two people, one to call and one to shoot - may be worth trying. I took a seminar at a local big box sporting store and that helped a lot. Other than that, sounds like you have a plan. Good luck. Keep trying.

      Certainly keep trying what you're doing, it doesn't sound like any of it is wrong per say. If you're limited to 3 properties, you can't expect positive results 8 days a week. Dawn is by far my favorite time to call, and I'd much rather be eating lunch at noon than calling coyotes. Deep woods is a very hard place for me to call, I usually have very poor results unless it's the dead of night. Wind is usually helpless for me as well. I doubt I've helped you any but good luck.

      P.s.- don't expect Randy Andersons calling results unless you're calling in his locations. I doubt as if you've ever seen a pro shoot a coyote video in you're home town... And for good reasons. Difficult scenarios make for poor footage.

        JMO~~ It sounds like your area is LOW in Song Dogs or your not putting out Bait??
        We were gutting out a Hog in the Field and spotted two Yots sitting in the brush line about 60+/-yards out waiting for us to leave.
        Ps: 2 more yots down for the Camp count.

          Are you hunting solo? If so, you are likely calling in dogs that you never see. Try hunting with a partner. The designated shooter should be a bit away from the caller and slightly elevated, if possible. The designated shooter will almost always see more animals than the caller. Take turns calling from stand to stand.
