you got another one in amelia, va... im a big deer hunter and im now getting into fox/coyote hunting during the deer offseason i live right on the chesterfield/amelia boarder.. have a foxpro spitfire call and have only got a couple fox with it.. where i live there seems to be more of a red fox presence than a coyote presence (in the past month iv seen maybe 4 or 5 fox to 1 coyote) i was wondering if any of you guys have any tips for me? i mainly use a red fox distress or a rabbit in distress call... i like to hunt the open fields but i do hunt alot of hardwoods in my area too any suggestions?
Welcome BC, for the hardwoods (i take it you mean hunting wooded ares) a scattergun would probably be best as they move fast enough to make a shot through woods iffy and they can get quite close before you even see them, practically rendering a scope a moot point. But also they WILL probably see you before you do them. So even when in the woods, figure the wind, set up downwind of a clearing in the woods or at least the most open area in the woods and off to the side a bit. An electronic call is better suited for the woods as you wont pin point your position. Lastly IMO you will make many sets that dont produce in the woods because the "master" definitely has the advantage in his preferred environment which is concealment offered by the woods. And dont give up...
I've been using mostly distress sounds, rabbit and birds but I can't call in a yote for nothing. I have called in a few bobcats, which is great fun but the dogs are giving me a fit. Saw one the other day after me and a friend were moving sets but this yote was not coming to the call. I am gonna start using yote sounds though. Try to take advantage of breeding season. It can't get worse.
