Have Fun!!!! Pay attention to wind direction, try to keep the sun at your back, start calling at low volume, sit still with something at your back to break up your outline
Don't get frustrated when your not calling em in every stand. Just some basics to start out with.

Be patient....  The video's you have watched are not the norm....  Enjoy being out there regardless if you have called them in or not.

Mix up the calls you’re using, the normal cottontail & jackrabbit in distress is somewhat over used. Try more bird and rodent distress. Just because the distressed animal isn't native to your area doesn't mean it won't attract attention. Be patient, sty a little longer on each stand......

 

ENJOY THE TIME IN THE FIELD!!!

Sight your gun in correctly.

 

 

 

 

And remember to live your life in a good manner. Just because 8 years have gone by since you stole that christmas tree doesn't mean karma has caught up with you yet.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

                                                       

                                                         

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !

 

If you want to be successful, Be like a postage stamp, Stick to it until you get there

    Scout preseason and during season. This includes talking with land-owners/farmers, they are a great source of info.  I have limited time to call for yote in good yote country, so each hunt is very planned.  Once permission is secured and good sign located, check out your property on Google Maps Terrain View and figure out calling locations based on structure and wind direction. DONT HUNT WHERE YOU WANT TO...  HUNT WHERE YOU HAVE TO.  Get away from the truck. Stalk into stand and set-up.  Wind is everything.  In evening, call to last possible legal light. Keep a focused, yet fun attitude on each stand.  They will show up, be ready and wait for them to stop.

Always try and keep an opening (good visbilty) downwind even if thats not where you expect them to come from.

Scott tried a post like this a couple of months ago and it ended with just jokes and guys just trying to be funny. He had a very good tip about setting your e-caller around a fence and where to and not to put it.

If we are going to try and help others we need to be serious about this post.Sorry if this is taken the wrong way but I think posts like this are a very good idea and a great way to get positive thinking on our sport out to ohers. I want to say thanks to Scott for trying and hope it works out alittle better this time. Come on guys give up a little on some of your best ideas.

Your nose never knows all the scents you carry with you on stand.  You'll never rid yourself of all of them (nor would your partner want you to...deodorant, toothpaste, etc.) but you can eliminate a few simple ones. Do not use scented laundry soap, hair gel or anything else. A good way to check is to open and smell the bottle, can, or jar the product is in. If you can smell it from a few inches away a coyote will smell it from a hundred yards away when it is downwind of you.

Very true YD... I cringe at the thought of walking around the gas station with my boots on & pumping gas. Some may think that's a but extreme, but when it comes to scent control these are things that will help lead to success. Everything added together helps. Oh, and no smoking :)

Think about your approach to your stand. The best calls in the world won't mean a thing if the 'yotes are watching you set up. It wont take them long to head for the next county if they see you walking through the center of thier living room.

Hunt with a buddy who helps out with gas money, doesn't move around on stand, slam the truck door, and jonses to go hunt every day like you do...

Having a "like-minded" hunting buddy can help to keep it fun. Then, the dumb mistakes aren't always yours and they are easier to laugh about later.

Call Volume is critical!

 

Depending on terrain and area, volume levels can/should be very different..

 

However, I can tell you in the AZ desert in the thick stuff, its very easy to have call volume too LOUD.  Please ask me how I know this..lol


... it's all easy if you know what you are doing ...

We use a motion decoy and a full-body coyote decoy over it.  It sure takes the spotlight off the hunter.  I also use my own brand of deer-urine cover scent collected from wild deer and put it on my rubber boots and all around the setup.

Make sure you vehicle is out of sight. I left my truck in the open in a conservation area parking lot. A yote came in at 500 yards and wouldn't come any closer. I wondered why.After trying everything to get him to come in I packed up and started to head back to the truck and I could see it as plain as day from my stand.

Hide the truck!

i am new to predator hunting 

but i agree with youngdon and spearodafish

 

all my hunting cloths get washed in scent free detergent and then placed in scent free bags,along with my hunting boots

i never ever wear my hunting cloths or boots in the truck or while fueling the vehicle or going into stores
when i get to the hunting area then and only then do i put on my hunting clothes and boots

i never shower with scented soaps and shampoos before hunting,always use scent free products,i never smoke in the field or on my way to the field,not just because of the odor

but i hate seeing cigarette butts in the woods

i always use cover scents,i like to find fresh deer poop and step in it and get it all over my boots

 

i even do this for turkey hunting,and their sense of smell is terrible,but i have spooked deer while turkey hunting before i learned to do this.and the deer will spook the turkeys

so i figure its got to work the same for predators

 

i also believe on should know the capabilities of their weapon and their own skills with that weapon and never ever take a shot that your not comfortable with,its better to let them walk unharmed than to have them run wounded and not be able to recover them


"The greatest danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the constitution"
