    Im new to coyote hunting. Im from western wi and i was wondering how to call coyotes and what types or kinds of calls work well. I was also wonder if motion decoys work at all. Any advice will help me. I have a remington 700 in 204.

    Call into the wind.
    Wear a face mask.
    Don't worry about motion decoys.
    Stay below the horizon while approaching the site.
    Sit on a slope overlooking the calling site.
    Always sit in front of a tree---never behind it.
    Animals typically like to move from downhill to uphill so don't call to something that is elevated above you.
    Call at dusk and dawn.
    Watch for any shape or color that is out of the ordinary from the time you sit down to the time you are about ready to get up.
    Put some emotion and variation in your mouth-blown calls.
    Call for about 30 seconds after you sit down and relax a bit. Don't call for another 15 minutes if nothing shows up after the first calling.
    Shoot the animal in the chest at close range, if possible. This will prevent a large exit hole, especially with the powerful .204. Calling something in 1 out of 7 attempts is about as good on average as you can expect. Better habitat may mean a better ratio.

      As a side note, I like to practice calling my house dog. He falls for the prank every time, except once he is called in the first time, he won't come in again until a few days have passed. It's amazing how little a volume I need to get him to come in. These canines have amazing hearing.

        When I deploy the trap this spring, I'll need at least one hive....I hope!...
