Hi all, I'm a life long deer/small game hunter but new to coyote huntin'..and this forum. I live in S.W. Ohio..Clermont county. all my hunting buddies have moved away and my dad has hung it up. sence it seems huntin' yotes has its own set of tricks of the trade I'm hoping to meet a fellow hunter that would hopefully let me tag along and show me a thing or two. I just bought a alpha dogg and would love to try it out and maybe put a dog or two on the ground.

First of all welcome to the forum. If we were alittle closer I would love to teach you. But try and stay hidden, like out of the sun and make sure you try to sit in front of something to break up your outline. When you walk in try to be as quite as possible so you don't spook them. Sit with the wind in your face because 9 times out of ten they try to get down wind. I always use a decoy to try to keep the coyotes attention on it while they come in. I also got a alpha dog and love it! Called in quite a few yotes with it.

What caliber are you using?

Welcome to the Cabin! Everyone here are really helpful and we are all one big happy redneck family that love to hunt and fish, and well just the outdoors in general!

Anyways, if I were you, start looking up youtube videos on coyoting hunting. You can spend hours and hours watching videos and you learn a lot to.

A few things to remember when you huntin dogs is, always try to keep the wind in your favor by having it blowing in your face or at least cross wind. Never sit on top of a hill or something to where you will be skylined. a coyote will see your human outline and will run away before you even see him. and always hide your truck!! Good camo is a plus and keep your body movement to a minimum when your making a stand. use your eyes to look around more then your head.

Good luck!

Ok I agree with everything the other guys said except one thing. I very rarely keep the wind in my face. Coyotes circle downwind so if the wind is in your face they come in behind you and a lot of times you won't see them before they smell you. I actually like to keep the wind at my back and just shoot the yotes before they get to my scent cone. The best advise I can give you would be to purchase Tony Tebbe's Predator University "So You Want to be a Predator Caller. It's a very informative DVD. I've been huntin yotes for almost 20 years and still learned quite a bit from the video. I'm actually goin to hunt with Tony this fall. Well good luck and safe huntin!!!!!

Thanks for all the info guys, I've been hittin the woods pretty hard last couple weeks. Last night I even took my alpha dogg and gun to work with me and after I got off I went to the field/woods behind where I work (my boss owns it, and is OK with me doing that)...I think I may be a addict now. lol I've spent all my Wife-dont-know-about-it funds for the month on the new caller, so I'll have to replenish the huntin account to buy a rifle ,not allowed to hunt with one in ohio for deer so never had the need for one (exept my .22) I've been huntin with a shotgun. I am thinking about a Remington or Savage 22-250. any suggestions?

Theres a few calibers out there. My next gun will be in 22-250. There also 223 which will be the cheapest too shoot and the 204 ruger etc.

I shoot a .223, its a great caliber for yote hunting and other varmint hunting and its not too expensive to shoot. But the 22-250, and .204 are great guns as well. Good luck with the gun shopping and hunting the coyotes!
