coyote calling....what works right now?

6 posts in this topic

got home for the weekend last night and went on a little scouting drive, mainly to see where the geese were and if there were any deer moving; ended up glassing a large coyote on the perimiter of a 40 acre crp valley we have. all i could do was watch him, meandering around in some soybeans about 175-200 yards off the road. all i had was my ruger .22 so taking a poke at him was out of the question. ive never been calling outside of the winter months and wonder what types of calls would work right now on yotes. im interrested in trying to call 'em in with 'yote vocalizations instead of prey distress sounds. any help would be appreciated!

one of my buddies that I hunt with has had success in the summer time using pup distress sounds, Ki-yi's etc. The parents are still training those pups and if they are in the area, they will come in to help their pup.

Another good call this time of year is a deer fawn distress call. I have used a piece of cardboard cut into a deer silhouette with a couple rows of white spots as a decoy.

I would start with a few howls and then work in to the pup distress, kinda like setting the table that someone is in there area and now beating on the kids. That should get the old ones in. Don't over do it though, take more time between sets and wait alittle longer, as they might now just run you over.

I would say pup distress, or even pup howls.

Fawn Distress are great right now! Be careful in bear country though!

Pup distresses are decent too though as long as you're in their living room.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
