    I think that's a pretty good list. I would add a few things: 1) Don't just go with prey in distress calls. Know that as soon as you start the distress call, the coyotes are gonna start circling downwind. 2) Start off with some coyote vocals and mix them in with distress calls unless you're also targeting fox or bobcats. I've had a good number of coyotes come running right into the initial howls. 3) Use confidence calls like crows gathering or bluejays going crazy help to put wary coyotes at ease and seal the deal. 4) Don't assume the hunt is over after you shoot or miss a coyote. Stay quiet and go to a KiYi or coyote in distress. You will be surprised at how many second opportunities you will get. 5) If you are not using an electronic caller and you get eyes on a coyote, be very wary about continuing to call unless you're using something subtle like lip squeaks. They can pinpoint sounds with great precision and they know exactly where the prey is supposed to be. When a mature coyote doesn't see the prey, they won't be around for long. 6.) After you scout, check the weather forecast, plan your hunt and get to your hot spot to find that the wind is wrong, do NOT be stubborn and hunt that spot. Hunt somewhere else.

    I'm an old bow hunter but thinking about getting into to coyote hunting, thanks for the tips. I've softened in my old age an feed most of the animals I used to eat.

    I've read if there are wolves in an area there might not be Coyotes around because wolves chase them out of the area or kill Coyotes. Coyotes can sense if a wolf is around and will most likely high tail it out of there.

    What's scary about hearing a few coyotes howling? I sit out on the porch and sing along with them.

    I feel as though I may have made a few mistakes on one of my "coyote hunts". I went out to feed my horses and heard a coyote off in the distance. It was quite cool and I really didn't want to go and bundle up, so I went and got my rifle, pulled my SUV out into the pasture next to my carport (about 40 yds from my back door), set my game call on the front of my truck which was sitting in the carport, started the engine, turned on the heater, and opened the window. In about 15 min. using vocals first and then pups in distress, I had a coyote down in the pasture about 50 yds. from my SUV.
    A friend of mine said it must have been a stupid coyote. But ya know what? I will put a stupid one down just as fast as I would a smart one.

    My 10 pound dog just got attacked by two coyotes. The birds tried to help my dog since they have grown fond to them and dived down on the coyotes. They were also screaming when it happened. By the time my mother looked back the dog was in the coyotes mouth. My mom started yelling and the coyote dropped the dog and ran away. He’s still alive and this just happened yesterday… now i need to eliminate them. It’s too many of them and they boldly come out in broad daylight it’s getting scary.

    How about when u here them pin pointing them in a section near town which I'm from well
    I go out at night out in yard I don't call at all ever I'm finding location which I did or no where there at
    So I'm finding and putting down dates and times together hit them on the fly .

    I was wondering if anyone has tried using bait. I trapped a beaver a few years ago, and I tied a fishing stringer around the beaver..because he had been dead under water for a few days and was stanky. So I dragged the beaver behind my 4 wheeler about a 1/2 mile back to the house. Needless to say I left a scent trail…and the coyotes followed me home. They came up in the front yard after the beaver. And I live in rural Oklahoma where coyotes are terrified of humans. So now Im thinking its a good way to bring Coyotes in. Because the 4 wheeler doesn't require you putting feet (Human scent) on the ground. I thought about getting a dead chicken or some road kill and loading it on back and just riding out and dragging it back and then hiding and waiting. Has anyone tried this?
