Personally... I like to give a spot a couple days... but I notice you are from Central Illinois... I was born and raised in Momence.... I assume the country is the same... Very easy to miss a coyote that has responded to your calls... Coyotes in the midwest dont seem to like to just barrell across a open feild... So to answer your question... If you are positive no one reponded, give it a couple of days... Coyotes in the midwest I personally have found that they are very "nomadic" moving a 5-10 mile route that they stay very "on course" to... so this in itself is a great opportunity to use trail cameras... If the coyote is there, every 3 days... makes your paths cross... That is 92% of the game in open farm country... If they are not there... they wont show up... Use of a decoy helps too... Validation of the sounds.. helps bring them out of the Hedge Rows, and other cover...

I have called a spot in the morning with no luck, and returned that evening and killed coyotes from the same location. It is all about the timing. Coyotes travel, so if they are not in the area you cannot call them in - or spook them. Some will disagree with me, but I have no problem with calling the same set twice in one day.

IMO,.if you make a setup and kill a dog or two, I would let it rest for a couple of days. If nothing shows up and you are confident there are dogs around, keep working it.

Ive killed 3 coyotes from the same spost 3 weekends in a row. If you have plenty of areas to hunt it wont hurt anything to hunt your hot spots pretty hard.
