Coyote Decoy Dog

Recommended Posts

K_Josh87

Hi Folks,

I am just curious if anyone out there has ANY experience with Decoying Yotes with a dog. I have seen this on a couple videos I have, and it looks very interesting, but that one would need a couple VERY well trained and obedient pooches. (This is not the same as running yotes with dogs) Its more of a tactic to use the dog to put the yote into a "protect" its territory mode, and then whistle the dog closer, which draws the yote closer for a shot... I am not really thinking i'd do this myself, I just found it very interesting.

Thoughts????

Never done it intentionally, but I had one in my yard running around in circles with my Gordon Setter. They both seemed to be having a real good time until my shotgun came out.

Yotes will pull a dog away from its protected area then the pack will pounce and kill the dog.

My brother has a hobby farm and he has seen this first hand. He told me that one afternoon his dog was going nutz and that when he looked why he saw that about a 150 yrds away there was a yote running a circle pattern his dog was chained up at the time so it didnt run to the yote . My bro ran for the rifle and when he got back he said the yote was gone so he went to where the yote was and saw that just down the way out of site where what appeared to be a bunch of other yote tracks waiting for the kill as he put it.

He said he cofirmed this only when the neighbor down the road dog was killed in the same manor.

I would think that its a territory type killing because the dogs that are attacked are not eaten by the yotes. 2c

Gordie,

I would venture to say that is correct. I Have not seen a lot of this, there is supposed to be a video of this guy hunting with the decoy dogs soley... They start out with a regular calling sequence to bring the yotes in, then once they are say a few hundred yards out (these guys) sent a pair of dogs out... and the dogs were VERY well trained in working the yotes... always seemed to stay a pretty safe distance, and slowly kept working them back in closer for a shot... It was something i thought was very interesting to watch...

I have done it as well, also not on purpose. I was coon hunting with a new dog, and a younger pup. The new dog, took off somewhere and couldnt call him in, so I hooked the pup up to a tree, and walked away, hoping the pup would start yelping, and the older new dog would come back to the pup. Well within 2 minutes of having the pup yelping, a large pack came in, and was howling and coming in hot, I had to run back out to the pup, and start making all kinds of noise, to chase the yotes off. Scarry stuff really. I have also had them come in on the dogs as they were treeing, so I usually try to hunt with at least 2 dogs, and try to get to the tree as soon as possible.

I've tryed it with varying success, i have mt curs and have gotten dogs from guys that are quite successful at it, really it only works well in the spring when the coyotes are real territorial and you have to sift thru to get the right dog, if their too gritty and stand too fight that don't work you want a runner, its not too tough if you can get a dog that barks and howls at the coyotes and then once they start after the dog just tone it with an e collar and it will come straight back to ya etc...its worth trying
