I have been an avid coyote hunter the last couple of years now and the dang dogs are always teaching me something new. We are just coming into their mating season up here in SD and my morning hunt was exciting to say the least. At sunup a coyote up in the Missouri river ridges behind me started howling from about a half mile away...I quickly repositioned towards its` direction and got on him loud with my howler. After about a minute he cut loose with a howl and some barks from about 200 yards away, but was hidden back in some base timber along the ridge...we challenge barked and howled back and forth at each other for about 10-15 minutes, but he would not come out in the open for a shot. I was fully camo`d and it was dead calm & 10 degrees out so figure he had to hear my lip squeeks as a final attempt to pull him into the open for a shot. Finally, after hearing no response for the next 20 minutes I quietly got up and out of the area in hopes of better luck the next time. Hoping to hear some tips if any of you have ever been down this road before and succeeded in getting them to come all the way in...I`m getting better at this addictive sport of varmint calling, but the more advice the better cuz that coyote hasn`t heard the last from me!
