Blaine,

    I'm new to this coyote stuff, I'm a great snap shot on a runnin critter at a couple hundered yards but what I really need to know is what to expect when I'm settin up to call the buggers.  I did get Randy's calling tapes and have picked up the calls, and an electronic caller I found cheap.  So as it goes it's only lack of experience holding me back.  Next month I'll need to start workin on the yotes at my friends farm, 40 acres and there was a pack of 12 dog's, now they got pups comin off weaning.  Any tricks that will help me eliminate mistakes on my setups?  Later this year I might try gettin ahold of one of yer tapes, guess old randy's come out with a new one also.

Thanks,

Spot

 hey spot: the kids have been looking into yotes and set up also. they are saying NOT to use a caller. just use mouth or hand calls.  but the 1 thing i use when i go is a white feather tied to a piece of thead. tie it out off to the side you want to shoot the best. when you start to call and the yotes will pick up on the feather blowing in the wind and take their eyes of any movement you might make. but it is like anything else . when you think you know all the ansewrs the change the ??????.

Early on in the season pup yipes and pup distress sounds work very well, I like the Critter Call Pee Wee as well and try to elevate myself above a drainage or bottom so i can see quite a ways. Try not to over call the stands, just give em a taste, loud and distressfull but in short bursts, try not to allow them to pin-point your exact location, and remain absolutely motionless! If they hold up way out studying the situation, give them a very soft lip squeak or just tap your mouse squeeker attached to your rifles forearm, this will pull em on in, once they begin their approach toward you, then you can ease into position for the shot but very slowly, if they pick up your movement , it is all over. If the wind is blowin at your back, you must take them before they approach too close, say under 100 yds. They can wind you at 60-70yds out, so be aware of what the wind is doing at all times. And as always, in the early season especially, pull your Fur as soon as possible to avoid any Slipped Fur! do not put it into a plastic bag and get it into a cool place as soon as possible.

Eddy,

  Slippery fur?  I really wasn't / aren't doing this for the fur - they don't pay much here.  A few of my friends want me to stuff a yote for them for a Decoy, I was a licensed Taxidermist when I was younger - specialized in birds & small mamals.  Never got on deer.  I had done some crows once - man did they work with the owl dek when we hunted crow when I was a kid.  haven't done that in years

Slipped Fur is a term used to descibe a rotting hide which will no longer support the Hair or Fur of a particular animal and it simply falls off or "Slips", Gut shots are especially bad as the stomach releases acids onto the hide thus rapidly increasing the rotting process. All in all "Heat" is Furs worst enemy!
