The only coyotes I've killed have been during turkey or deer season. This year I decided to go after them, instead of just happening upon one. I keep a mouth call tied to my stand and have turned them to me after seeing them.
I bought a FoxPro Wildfire and went to my neighbors 30 acres where I have seen them in the mornings. The area is so thick, that a tree stand is best for visibility. I always hear them before seeing them.
I was attaching the stand before dawn and clinked some metal and about 50yds away a pack of coyotes starting yipping and howling!
I went ahead and finished setting up and waited about an hour and then triggered a jackrabbit distress. Nothing, except for every crow in the county seemed to descend on me. Between them and the call, I couldn't have heard an elephant walking through the woods.
About 15 minutes later I heard yipping a long, long way away, but they never responded.

Was I wrong in continuing to set up in this spot, or should I have bagged it for the day?
How long should I activate the call and then wait?

A lot of time when the coyote hear the crows they will come to see what is going on. As far as whether you should have stayed or tried a different place it would be the flip of a coin. I think I would have stayed.

Thanks KPH.
I stuck around for another 45 minutes (waiting for this big fox squirrel I have seen). Nice to know about the crows.
I'm heading out to the farm, 300 acres, tomorrow so I will at least have some longer distances between me and them. This 30 acre patch is real up close and personal.
Last deer season this guy took two arrows.

I'm no expert, but from what I've read, the only way to even put a dent in the population of coyotes is to trap them. So far since deer season ended, I've caught two,(plus three bobcats) with only six traps on less than 50 acres. Lot's of fun!

What kind of traps are you using?
