I assume that coyotes and bobcats are after turkeys as often as they can get them, but I never hear anyone talking about using a hen call for them.

I was thinking about taking a turkey call with me for this purpose on the last deer hunt of the year, since I'll likely go to an area that has a high coyote population. I don't own any traditional predator calls and won't really have an opportunity to buy one by tomorrow.

Is this not typically done because it's not very effective? I didn't see any regulations on the matter, except that you can't attempt to call them on any WMAs from March 1 until opening day of turkey season.

Thanks for the input!

I have several trukey "distress" call on my foxpro and have attempted to use them late February, however i was unsuccessful. It might work on a really hungry coyote, just never tried it enuff. can take a diaphram mouth call and use it as a predator call...instead of putting or purring use more tounge pressure and be lil more forceble with air and make a sound like a baby crying...WHAAA WHAAAAAAAA....takes a little practice but cheap, effective, and leaves your hands completely free.

Stretch and I called in a coyote at LBL one day while turkey hunting.

Something about stretch's gun and some #6s had a bad effect on it though. \:D

i've used them effectively several times
the best results have been early morning close to water
coyotes figure out pretty fast that turkey like to roost near water and coyotes in my experience like to travel along water ways anyways
i've luck doing that late evening too but nowhere near like early morning

Ive had a total of only two coyotes come to the hen decoy and calling, one took the decoy and spit it out when it rec'd the # 4x6 duplex load to the neck, totally freaked me out....these were both seen and shot at during turkey season. al
