Im new to predator hunting and all.I have a been reading the last posts about everyone wanting to start predator hunting. I now know all the basics, but i dont know if all the information given would work in Arkansas. During all of our snow i saw alot of coyote tracks and our rabbit population has gone down to almost nothing.So i know we have a bunch of coyotes and all.My question is what kind of call would i need for Arkansas.I will only be hunting 80 acres, where most of it are fields and a small patche of woods. Im just trying out coyote so i'm not going to go out and buy a $300 dollar call. I will either be using a 30-30 or a .308. If i start to injoy and kill a couple of coyotes i might go out and buy a new gun. But for now i will just use what i have. So my main question is what are some good easy calls to start out with. Thanks in Advance,
Alec

The lil dog by primos is a great call. Grab one and get practiced up with it. Then go out and kill some dogs! Good luck.

i'd start with a closed reed cottontail move onto a open reed when you get the hang of them.
then for set up and megga information on calling go to predatormasters.com and search the old posts for any questions you might have.
once you call one in you will be addicted then you will find you need more calls gear rifles camo scopes AR's custom calls foxpro's and every other gadget anyone comes up with lol
hello i'm casey and i'm a call a holic blink.gif


--------------------
i never saw a coyote call i didn't want.
calling elk would be as much fun if you could do it every weekend.
some folks collect coins I collect calls.
hello i'm casey and i'm a call-a-holic.

Thanks for the info. I'm going out this weekend to see if I can stir anything up. I know where a couple of fox are living, might get a shot at them. I'll post pics if I get Anything. One question I'll probably be using a 30-30 on the coyotes and a 22 for the foxes.Will both of these guns be alright to use? Thanks for the help

Think ya gonna be very upset when you shoot at a fox with a 22, I SURE WAS laugh.gif
I wouldnt advise anything smaller than a 223, 22-250 is (in my opinion) ya best wpn of
choice, yer 30-30 will do the trick, but lil more damage.(if ya wanting the pelts) 243 with V-max ballistic 58gr is awesome as well! I have both 243 & 22-250. I love my 22-250 Howa with the 55gr, ballistic silver tips. No exit wounds!
Best of luck to ya, HAPPY,SAFE HUNTING!
As for call, i realy like the Primos Hot Dogg, and the Lil Dogg! but then, I have 27 mouth calls, 3 electronics! tongue.gif Yea, i got a SLIGHT addiction rolleyes.gif

That's a good suggestion. Stanley Srcuggs makes a good closed reed cottontail distress that's super easy to use.
