Know the Coyote

I always think it is important to know as much as you can about the prey you are hunting. I have been hunting my whole life. My father, himself a wolf hunter in the 20’s, taught me to hunt when I was a boy and I have been learning ever since.

The more you know about your target animal the better you will get. It also helps if you respect them. And trust me, the more you know about the coyote the more you will respect him.

Coyote Populations Growing

Unlike most of the big game in North America, the coyote has actually expanded its range as people have moved in. As wolf populations have declined the coyote has moved right in to take over the niche. They are more comfortable living around humans than wolves so they can adapt to the changes that people have brought. Their cleverness and adaptability have served them well and their numbers are growing.

This means there are more and more of them to hunt.

Calling Predators

While calling predators is something that can take a lifetime to master, it is something that anyone can get started at right away.

A good call is a call that is well made using only high quality materials and expert craftsmanship – that will get you there. Hardwood is a must to give it a natural sound, and a well tuned reed will help to mimic an animal’s call. After that all you have to provide is the air!

You will be surprised at just what sorts of creatures will come out to see what is going on, even if you are a complete rookie. If you practice outside in your yard don’t be surprised if you call out a few of your human neighbors who want to see what’s going on!

There really is no substitute for a properly made call. It’s the thing that gets the hunt started in the first place so you want a call that is going to make you happy and produce results.

I have always found wood (hardwood to be exact) to be the best for giving an authentic sound. There are plenty of plastic calls out there on the market but you just can’t get the natural sound and tone out of them that you can with a wood call.

The call is the only thing you have to get the coyotes coming to you. And if you can’t do that then what are you out there for after all?

Real Wood Natural Game Calls

Wood calls (and again I mean hardwood) just can’t be beat. There is something about using a part of nature in the in the call that gives it a truer and more natural sound.
