Gain the advantage with these great deer hunting tips.
Good planning when making your prehunt scouting, or in choosing places to actually hunt coyotes, is 75% of the battle, so-to-speak. This includes gaining permission to hunt on private lands. I profess very adamantly to ASK FIRST to Hunt on Private Lands! And don't go out knocking on ranch house doors in full camo, looking like Rambo, while you're on a hunt. It tends to turn alot of folks off. We, as responsible hunters need to always bear in mind the anti-hunting images that have been pushed upon the general public. Even rancher's wives, who are affected by predators to their own livelihoods, don't always look upon fully camo-dressed people in the best light. If you want to hunt an area, make a scouting trip in normal attire, and make the first impression a good one.
Out here in the mostly wide-open spaces of New Mexico and the southwest, there is a transitional area between the desert type areas and the juniper/pinon covered hills. Rolling, tree covered hills open up into finger like ridges, with dry wash gullies in between. Even in the lower desert type country, there are dry washes. Open in the bottom, brushy along the sides and, if you stay on higher ground these are the perfect ambush sites for making coyote calling stands from.
Throwing caution to the wind (sic). This is a deadly strategy when hunting the coyote with a buddy. As the coyote is paying attention to the caller's location, and not the sniper higher up and on the downwind side.
