Coyote Hunting

Post by Bleeding Red » November 1st, 2010, 8:57 pm

I went with friend this evening. The farm that we set up on and the area around it is loaded with yotes. Last week produced 3 yotes coming in to a rabbit and distress call and one getting shot.

Tonight we started with a rabbit in distress and had no luck. After 15 minutes of calling we switched to a howl. After a couple minutes we had a yote howling and yipping back at us from a couple hundred yards away. We switched back over to a rabbit in distress and he came in to 200 yards and I missed him with my .300 win mag, so of course there are no pics!

Seems like with the weather getting colder the yotes are on the move and anyone that likes to call them in will certainly have fun doing it during this time of the year.

I don't tell this story to often...its pretty hard to believe!

I'm setting in a thicket with my turkey decoys out to my left about 20 yrds. A gobbler is down over a bank answering my calls. Out of nowhere a large coyote comes running through my thicket and sides to a stop...just brushing my leg....turns and goes back out the same way he came in. (my right)

This all happened so fast my heart never had a chance to stop or try to pound its way out of my chest. I've killed a couple yotes but none ever stank as bad as this one!

Were you working a hen call? I ask because I had numerous coyotes come rushing in to a hen call while turkey hunting.

And I think every yote smells rank!

Yes, of course a hen call. I've called a few others in but that was the first one to actually run into me.

I have a ton of Coyotes here in KY. I get at least 1 coyote pic to ever 5 deer pics on my trail camera. I think this Coyote is unusual looking... but i havent seen a lot of them either.. i had him at 50 yards the first day of KY season but couldnt get a clear shot.

Yeah it does look weird. Hardly ever see a yote with a blonde coat.

The reason it looks unusual is maybe because it is wearing its summer coat or it could be a coydog,I have a friend of mine that has one mounted that is jet black has short hair and a white diamond on its chest.

I would say that the color of the coat they have just reflects where they spend most of there time at kinda like a bass in the water. If a bass is in clear water it will be a different color fish then a bass in dirty water. Maybe the coat color just tells if the coyote spends most of its time in the woods or in open fields that it gets a lot of sun, just a thought
