I called on in on Saturday morning but the coyote stopped at 300 yards in a firm stance with his ears up. I thought he busted us but it turned out seconds later a helicopter flew over us only 40 feet above and ruined our stand.

Hey PCH can I ask what kind of calls do you use. I am new to the coyote hunting and would like to hear what works best for you.

I think all he uses is hand calls.

I had some luck on Friday night. Called in two black backed jackal. From two different stands though. The first one was a young one. Second one was a mature male. It came in after about 10 minutes of calling , but only presented its head and neck at about 200 yds, so did not want to take the chance. Thought it would give me a bit more , but dissapeared. Then finally came in at about 03:00 am , 3 hours later than the first sighting. Stopped it at about 100yds, and that was the end.

Just one? Haha, just kidding. I called in two on one stand last weekend. It was my first time using a hand call so I guess I was doing something right! I always used my foxpro before but I think they are learning that. I dropped one dog 25ft in front of me but the other took off and was too far out by the time I found saw it. Talk about a rush! They snuck up right behind me and surprised me. On another stand, I called in a fox to about 30ft from me. I won't shoot foxes though. They are too cute and don't threaten anything really like yotes do.

Wondering about big predators and how you avoid having those jump into your lap when your predator calling?

Can you guys elaborate?
Thanks,

Make sure you have something behind you like a large tree or embankment and have a partner. They say that a cougar can drop 40 feet without injury, so keep that in mind.

love the setup in the truck. If I had that truck, someone to drive it for me and someone to call for me and someone to shoot for me I might get a coyote. Oh yeah, I need to borrow a rifle.

would be tooling around mogadishu hijacking aid shipments.
i love it but i'll venture to guess we can't utilize a rig like that in ca.
when i eventually get to africa im putting night tactical ops at the top of my list.
looks like more fun than setting up over a water hole waiting to jack a zebra.
those jackels look just like yotes, just a little darker.

Hunting Jackals are way too much fun. I would love to say that i'm doing it to aid the farming community, because they are a real problem in South Africa. Currently the stock loss are at $ 200,000,000 a year. Thats $200 million. But, the truth is, the challenge, the calling, working out strategy , is just as much fun as any hunting I have done. Whenever I have a chance, I am out.
Those rigs , like the one on the back of that truck, are actually pretty standard when it comes to calling. As I said before, there are even guys doing it as a full time job these days, and thats the severity of the problem.

But fun, is and understatement...

I sure hope to make it out there sometime to aid you with the eradication of the jackals.

Thanks guys,
The honest truth is that the rig on the back of the truck is basically a must for shooting jackal. I have spoken to a couple of guys who have had the priviledge to hunt coyotes, and they all agree that the jackal is a bit smarter and a bit more difficult to call in. The rig basically just cuts down your shooting time from when you stop the jackal to pulling the trigger, because its basically like shooting off a bench. You can clearly see where the rifle gets mounted above the spotlight, and then where the stock fits in above the backrest of the chair.
I use this rig for clients wishing to shoot a jackal as well. But , as you know you can go and call every night, but it doesn't mean that you will get one. I think that is the part that is so addictive.
