What the fuck, am I just retarded? I was told coyote hunting was fairly easy because it wasn't hard to lure them in. I'm a fairly inexperienced hunter but I've been able to get up close and personal to deer and moose. What am I doing wrong with these bastards?

Also, Coyote/Predator Hunting and Trapping General I suppose. Gonna be a cold winter boys
Death to Coyotes
Fucking things walk through my neighborhood nightly. Practically run into them mountain biking
I have the same issue as you. I have no issues seeing them when I'm fucking around on the farm without a rifle but the moment I set up to actually hunt the fuckers they're nowhere to be found

What do you use for a caller? You might be fucking up your calls if you are using a diaphragm caller. Cheap electronic callers like the foxpro patriot are also too quiet and lots of times coyotes just dont hear them.
You try baiting yet? Ive had decent success using a carcass when calling fails.
Johnny Stewart Executioner, I always put it on full blast since its windy as fuck up here in Hyperborea

Never baited, what do you use?
>Johnny Stewart Executioner
Oof, i might see your problem. Budget callers suck and are basically a scam most of the time. I was able to call in one or two yotes with my old foxpro patriot, but there was a night and day difference when i got the Shockwave.
>what do you do for bait
When working on my great uncles ranch i used mounds of Prairie dog corpses and a caller or if a cow died i used that.
In deer season i use the deer i shot as bait. Check your local laws tho, not sure if every state is cool with baiting.
>wake up
>shoot coyote off porch
>get dressed
what is so hard about this?
Want to hunt foxes. Want to DIY a call. Daytime only. No electronic calls (because stupid laws). .22lr hollow points. Gimme advice.
Did some looking. Seems like you can cut the neck off a balloon and just stretch either side of the neck out and blow. Get a bag of balloons from the store and you'll have quite a few calls, even if they slowly rip and tear. You can also fill a balloon and do the same, but my shitty balloons stretch unevenly and would end up bursting and scaring everything off. This guy is overthinking it IMO. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgcB9f4PMC0
Okay, if you're going to try that call I recommend small water balloons. Mine was way too thick and I was getting low tones out of it and had to pinch off half the neck's width to get rabbit-like sounds out of it. Otherwise it was horrible. Might just pin some balloon necks to a block of wood to make it easier on myself. Yeah I guess I could just buy a fucking call at this point but where's the fun in that?
What do you do with the bodies?

They know.
Trying to get a fox to come back to a spot I spotted one before. Similar difficulties here. I think I'm going to try the styrofoam on glass trick to call one in. Fieldsports Britain on YouTube shows that off in a couple videos, so I'm curious.
Just pick up a road killed deer drop it in a field and wait.
