Hi everybody. New to the whole forum posting thing so please be gentle. Anyway, here's the deal. Decided to give coyote and fox hunting a try this winter for the first time. Myself and my brother have been out a few times now and thus far no luck. We've tried using rabbit squeals, coyote challenge howling, coyote fight mocking, and another number of tactics (basing our strategies off what we've seen on predator hunting movies). Just wondering if it makes sense to start out with a rabbit squeal and then switch to coyote vocalizations (usually 30 seconds of calling then quiet for 5 minutes)? We do this usually 3 times and then begin to challenge howl. Will yotes vocally respond to the squealing or is it more of a "just keep scanning the area for movement/eye reflection?" Wondering if it makes sense to do rabbit squeals then turn it into coyote howls (in the same setup) or are we giving away too many of our "tricks"? To my knowledge these animals have not been pressured hard or at all. Also, it obviously makes sense to go where we have been hearing them at night but is it absolutely neccessary? What I mean is just because we don't hear them in an area, does it not pay to hunt them there? Maybe we're expecting too much, but just thought we'd have some sort of response (guess what they don't show you on the videos is the 10 hours of footage with nothing happening!) Anyways, thanks for any and all replies in advance and information is much appreciated. By the way, dang nice forum! Lot's of good information.
