I'm still trying to take my first coyote or fox. Tonight went out early right after dark. Turned on Baby cottontail and at the ten minute mark eyes appeared and disappeared quickly in the brush.

Switched to adult cottontail a little later and 3 coyotes sounded off a few hundred yards away down in the bottom. I played that off an on a little then went to coyote death cry and picked up eyes about 125 yds, definately a coyote. He started circling to our left to get downwind. He was about 100 yds out facing us, I flipped the safe off and just settled in on his chest and he started moving to our left again to get downwind.

I could never get him to stop long enough even muting the call I couldnt get a good shot on him!

Ahhhhhh so close.

I know the feeling... Went out this evening and made a quick set close to home. Got out of my truck, there stands a fox watching me. He runs off...
Get to my spot, caught eyes again. Gone... Set out caller, get back to spot, and find out batteries are dead??... Replace batteries. Started calling. Within 2 minutes had a fox at 40 yds. It was snowing so hard, I could not see him in the scope, even with the power turned way back... Never did see him sneak off. Then just about hung my truck up in the field... Figured I better just call it a night....

You can always bark at a coyote to get it stoped. I havnt done it but alot of videos show guys doing it. I have lip squeaked a fox coming in hard and stopes it. That might work for a coyote too.

It was snowing so hard at one point I could only see about 40 yds through the scope.

Hind sight we thought about barking but inexperience caught me again.

It's still fun though.

Exact same thing happened to me on Thursday. Those yotes are impossible compared to fox. Good to hear the death cry brought them in further. Maybe I will give that one a try next time out for coyotes. I've only had luck with coyote vocals. Good to hear BabyBee brought them in...everything loves that sound.
