im from warren OH and was wondering what the trick is with these coyotes there smart and will run away at a rabit in distress call. is night time better? or evening or morning? is it better to bait them in or try to call them in? thanks for your help
A couple buddies and I have been out a lot recently down in hamilton and butler county and have seen a few yotes but no luck yet. We go often in the morning and have seen a few but they seem to be very wary of distress calls. We have found that they will respond and are attracted to howls better than the distress. We have been a few times at night and have had yotes all over. I have to belive that in the extremly populated areas that we hunt along with yourself that the yotes are probaly far more active at night than in the day. They are tough to hunt around these parts. I got board hunting deer (three in one year with a bow) so wedecided to do some yote hunting to experiance a new challenge.
Just dont give up try howls, cat distress if your in an area that is populated. The way I like to do it is scout find where they normally go in their regular routine , that way you are attracting them into a place they feel comfortable. Locate them in the moring before daylight them make a plan wait til after they have cleared the fields, that way your not spooking them . Then sneak in and make a setup in the woods the will usally comeback to a place the have just left if they werent spooked. Give them time . Also baiting works good this time of year just put it where you can see them first . No matter what they are tough to hunt just watch the wind dont let them see you on the way in and remember you wont call one to a place he dosent want to go.
thanks guys.. i did kill one last year and it was 7pm when i did so .. we bated that on in with a dead dear. i will deff keep baiting them in and i will be getting a foxpro fx3 so that way i dont scare them away with my mouth call. lolol..i will deff not give up thats for sure i dont no how to do that. and im deff gona try night hunting.. God bless fellas and God Bless. thanks again
