need calling advice

In the past, I have heard coyotes in the distance yipping on the way out to the set. I have tried to do a distress call to call them in, but haven't had any luck.

I walk out as quiet as possible!

Wandering what to do in this situation for calling? Howl?

How long do you do a distress call? How much time between callings?

I you haven't started out with a howl, I would try that...I would also try sitting in a different spot and trying a different distress call. maybe even try a hurt pup kiyi after you howl, Keep after them, make sure you don't skyline yourself, mind the wind also.

Try something different, park further away, use a cover scent.......I think these coyotes know your call and what it sounds like. Remember to start out quietly, call for 10-20 seconds and then be quiet for about 3-5 minutes and start it again, keep that up for about 30 minutes and see what happens. Don't do a thing for the first 5-10 minutes. But Try starting out with a howl.....

I know there are others here that can help out as well, good luck

I'm certainly no expert here, however I'll take a stab at this. I'll assume you're paying attention to the wind and getting into position as quietly as possible...

I think I'd go for more of a locating/greeting call in the beginning. Tell them "you" are there and new to the neighborhood. Just to get their attention. From what I've seen, yotes can be very territorial and will come to "greet" any new arrivals in their domain. See if you can get a response. If they respond or continue to yip, you're still well in the game. It not, don't worry. All is not lost.

Now if this call you're using is a rabbit or other prey distress call... I'd start this after a locater/greeting and at low volume being a bit sporatic. Call for a few seconds and then wait. Then increase your volume and call again. This time a bit longer in duration. I'd keep this routine up until I'm causing quite a ruckus and thought Mr. Bunny had bit the dust. By then, the set is usually over and it's time to move on...

In some areas, the yotes become "educated" from hunters just dropping in and blasting away on their calling. In fact, there are areas that the rabbit distress is almost like hoisting a red flag to them. I try my best to mimic what I think the course of nature would be. Change things up. Keep them guessing. They're already smarter than I am... No reason to give them any more schooling.

Please keep in mind, every set is going to be different. Sometimes just a whisper will do the trick. Other times you'll have to throw everything you have at them. It can and will be frustrating. However, when everything comes together it makes it all worth while. wink.gif

I haven't called one in yet with the distress, both tonight came in to howls. Get good with the howler, and be patient, they either come in a hurry or it takes abit. I suggest getting a good predator movie and learn the howls, it has made a big difference in my success. I somtimes start with a long lonesome howl, wait 5min, start some distress, howl a little and wait, kinda repeat it, and if you are howling, stay 30-45min, they come from a long ways sometimes and they need time. Most often the don't howl back either. Good luck.

Thanks for all the advise I appreciated it!

I have watched a video and read numerous magazine articles to try and figure them out.

I will definitely try your tactics

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
