Have a lot of coyotes around here, can hear them calling and catch them running by every now and then but what is the best way to call them in?

Western Rivers Nite Stalker Electronic Predator Call Camo

would this work?
do you need this much? Do you need more? Which type go gun do you use, I've seen ARs to rifles to shotguns, which do you preference? Day or night? If at night how close can you get them? How much cameo you need?

Thanks for the advice.

It's a short answer Sunday. Never hear of that call. FoxPro is the best. Use an AR or other rifle; skip the shotgun. Day is way easier if your yotes will come then. You need tons of camo during the day. At night, you need a powerful light. Red is best.

Whereabouts are you located?

The ar is the best choice for coyotes, they normally will stay out of shotgun range Camo is important At night a red lens spotlight works wonders

I have a fox pro turbo dog.

Small, light, preprogrammed sounds and more can be downloaded relatively cheap. Remote says 100yrd range but real life is probably half that unless you are elevated.


I called in an owl with it once, scared the shit out of me, also brought in a couple of coons but the coyotes held back. I can't blame the call, it was more likely my dumbass smoking a cigarette that kept them back.

Wind in your face, gutted rabbit for bait, be still, don't over do the calling.
AR is a great choice.

I like the mini-blaster by Burnham Bros.. Hand calls will allow you to change tone, frequency, or duration based on your needs. Sometimes changing your call will peak their curiosity, & get them to come in closer. Start off slow so they can't zero in on your location and be patient. First time yotes will move in for the kill real quick, but if they've heard a squall before even the hungry ones move in a lot slower. Once you get'em in make it count since they get educated real quick. If you do take one down wait a little while, and resume calling. Quite often you can get another.

At night I've kept a 12 gauge 00 buck close by for the ones that come up fast, and quick. For the others a 22-250 is my preference. As Remington said a red light works best. Even better if you can find one with a dimmer. Keep lowering the intensity of the light until you get'em were you want'em and then full power the Q-beam. It'll stop'em in their tracks long enough for you to get off a shot. You can also hold the main beam in front of them to keep'em coming in, and remember 1-2 million candle power hurts their eyes causing them to shy. You don't need much with the red lens. It'll still look like 2 big reflectors coming at you.:)

I personally like day calls better, and will use a 308 so that I can reach out and touch...

That actually works on most animals, cougars also (well, at least on the 2-legged variety).
