    For real though we pick up a deer carcass off the road or if we shoot one throw whats left in the field and they will come into it.

    Do you happen to have a neighbor that just happens to have a tomcat that you don't really like very much ??? All you need to do is to "borrow" your neighbor's cat, put it in an old birdcage, and hang it in a tree. Pretty soon, the cat will start howling that he can't get out, and any coyotes in the area will be on their way to investigate the possibility of a free lunch. Keep in mind, that scent control can play a major factor, so be prepared. Other things that seem to work well ( if your neighbor doesn't have a cat you can use ) are bait piles. If you can add fresh bait every day or two, you can get the coyotes used to coming around to check them, and just set up on the pile. Use chicken, turkey, freezer-burnt meet of any kind, roadkill, almost anything that stinks. I like to use all of these things. Just make sure that your night-vision scope has fresh batteries, and is sighted in... Later on, when there's a bit of snow, you won't need night-vision. ENJOY !

    On this note, I live around a Prairie Dog habitat, and this year I've found two cat heads and one dog's head, complete with collar, in the P.D. town.
    I've seen one 'yote that looks as big as a small German Shepherd, and very well fed. They've become quite brazen, actually following me while I walked my Rat Terrier along the creek.
    My Rat Terrier is fairly smart, he sticks with me when they're around.

    I'll have to try the nasal spray bottle trick, that's awesome. I've got a couple predator calls I've been trying out for bear but figured they would more likely attract yotes as there's more of them.

    Ran right up on one walking quietly this week, got within 20' of him, nice size one but he vanished into the ferns within a second. Not sure I'd take a shot at one unless I was really bored though, got no use for them. Enough show up to rob the chicken coop, catch them usually in the mornings at first light. Boom goes the shotgun out the bedroom window!

    the neighbors love that I'm sure... wake up time! bang bang bang bang...

    sorry folks, coyote...

    Both mornings and evenings worked equally well for me. It just matters if they are within earshot or not.

    I do not hunt coyotes (there are all over up here) but IMO.
    I would just get a anti gun democrat chain him in the middle of a field and sit back and wait.
    I am sure all his squealing will bring them in.:eek:

    When I hunted coyotes the best bait by far was a live chicken that had one leg tied to a stake. We put another string around his neck and sat in a blind with the string in hand. Every so oven pull the string around the chicken's neck to make him squawk and flap his wings. The only problem was that the chicken would attract dogs, cats, pigs, hawks, bobcats, and raccoons. Seems like every animal in the world likes a fresh chicken.

    Using live bait or live decoys here in MO will land you in jail if caught. The rabbit squall works but you can educate them in a hurry if you let them get away from you one time. Seems every spring turkey season I have coyotes come in to a turkey call looking for a turkey dinner. I hunt them for the fur, but if they come in during the spring I'll kill them too. Rabbit eatin' #*)^@!'s

    Thanks! I suppose this might be considered advertising by some, since the author is selling calls, but I appreciate anything that's free, and he isn't at all pushy about it.

    The book it's self might be a good thing/knowledgeable to have but I never did buy the "guide".
    I did however sign up for the emails and the 1st one was good info for starters. However, after that my inbox was getting stuffed up on "things to buy" I unsubscribed.

    Just on a side note, my neighbor has chickens and guinea hens. Our back yards are up against a state wildlife area. Last night at midnight the guineas exploded in cackling (or what ever you call the god awful noise they make). After about 10 minutes I heard what sounded like a .22.

    Rest in peace Br'er Fox. :rolleyes:
