I had some time this afternoon and made three sets. This is my first year hunting coyotes, and calling them in is an absolute blast! Had coyotes come in at all three sets, got one at each of the first two sets, and then missed one at the last set.

It is quite the rush seeing them running in! I shot a .223 today and love it! I shot one at about 100 yards and it totally smashed him. The other one was a hit a little far back and it did the spin in a tight circle biting at the wound thing until I hit it again. The biggest mistake I made today was trying to shoot them while they were trotting - I was afraid to make a sound to get them to stop.

yeah, just let them come as close as they want then give'em the kiss of death.

I usually have a 12ga sitting next to me with some #4 buck shot for the close ones

If you just bark like a dog they almost will always stop

The pro hunter teaching the seminar at cabelas uses a Benelli with Hevi Shot with like 00 shot something or other and has this in the sticks ready to rock and has his AR at his side for the farther ones. Apparently gets surprised with really close ones regularly so chose the shot as his primary shooter.
