I live in Saratoga County and the Yotes howl all night long. I have hunted night and day the score is 12 down 3 missed best time is daylight and sunset, night time produced Yotes and the 3 misses. At night I carry a rifle 220 slung and shot gun ready that slowed down the misses. There are plenty of dogs here and also in Washington county. That is where I hunt always get answers calling but don't always get them to come in. Rabbit call brings and rodent call brings them closer. In the morning I use Turkey call, works some times real good.
ive been using alot of howls and coyote vocals with no luck.they have been responding but not commiting.are u guys still trying critter distress calls or no?im outside of buffalo and they are real vocal at night so im sure they are pairing up to breed.havent had no luck with cottontail distress in a week so i am changing up to howls.any luck howling yet?
I live in Chautauqua county south off buffalo about an hour.. Just getting into hunting coyotes and I love it. Iv been scouting and have some sets in mind, also just purchased some new hand calls. The primos hot dog and the ki-yi. Iv herd alot of good things about them so I am a excited to try em out
Welcome to PT! Those are some good calls. Do your practicing where they won't hear you. You might want to get a distress call with a little less volume to start a stand with. I have both of those calls and they are loud. The cover is so thick here that you can have a coyote or fox a lot closer than you think. If you blast away with a distress call it can turn a critter the wrong direction. That is not to say it will scare it off for sure but starting with a little caution won't hurt. If I am hunting in some thick stuff I start with lip squeaks.
