I've hunted with guys in brown car harts and been successful, but I wear full cammo too, I think that having a good back drop and a call/ decoy out is the best, they come running in so fast to the call they don't see you,

Beach Dude im sorry bro but Coyots are extremely mart animals they have all the features and tools of a dominate predator they are a pretty tough animal to kill. Scent control, the right gear, and the right camo are very critical to be able to kill the animals.

The fact that beach-boob actually used, "LMAO" and "maroon" just proves he spends more time playing video hunter than real hunter. The use of Ghillie suits is the evolution of hunting...you know, evolve...i guess you haven't the slightest clue what it means to evolve,adapt and change to one's surroundings. I'm sure you wear Flip-Flops and a Hawaiian shirt when you hunt Lion's in Mozambique, However, for the rest of us "maroon" hunter's, We will try any new and legal tactic available. Happy Hunting on the beach???

beach dude your an idiot! coyote is one of the smartest animals out there and you must think they come trotting in with ease. good camo and scent killer is the only way you will call them in! the only reason your laughing your ass off is because your a dumb ass and have no idea about this subject.

I hunt coyotes in the no.east and a couple of diifernt camo blankets is all you need for cover. A few calls and my favorite riffle (Marlin lever 30-30). Know your enemy and terain. make them before they make you and keep the odds in your favor.

Beach Dude you really must be joking. First its not sniper camo its actually plain ghillie. Sniper ghillie suits are much more advanced to blend in. Second in some situations no you don't need camo. Hence people wearing orange during regular season for deer but hunting a dog is totally different. Obviously you do not hunt predators or you would know rule one is be invisible.

You are not going to shoot many Eastern coyotes without camouflage. At least where I hunt. I will agree with the comment above, I do not believe a cagier animal exist.

I hunt coyote year round and I think blending in with the landscape is very important, maybe the folks out there who think camo is not important are not killing any song dogs? Thanks for the tips it was a good article.

I wouldnt call camoflauge a scam, but I will agree that it is not necessary. I've hunted with some people who need all the help they can get - every time I looked at them they were moving their arms or something.

I have to agree with Beach Dude, camouflage is the biggest scam out there for hunters right now. Our grandfathers killed deer in nothing more than blue jeans and a t-shirt. Also, in my opinion, being dressed head to toe in camouflage(especially a ghille suit) makes you look like a clown. Just my two cents.

Beach Dude, if you were sitting on an open sand beach you should be sporting a "sand suit" so as not to draw attention. Flat open prairies like the open in the picture demand camouflage to break up your outline.

In response to Beach Dude, Step one in any hunting situation is to blend into the landscape. That is hunting 101. Judging by the pic that hunting area appears to be out west with little more then sage brush for cover which isn't much. I have a suit I made of netting and I tailor it to each hunting area. It has allowed me access and setup with ease of more open spaces when cover is limited. It is a good tool as fisherus stated. Everyone has an opinion and it can be great when we chat about experiences. Sometimes those discussions lead to experimenting in the field and success. Articles are here for us to take it or leave it. Not for disrespecting the folks who put these up for our enjoyment. Beach Dude if you have open hunting ground make one as I did and give it a try if you haven't. You may be amazed! Take care folks

If you are hunting where there are freezing temps.Try using a yote pop cicle! I own a slaughter house in cent Ohio. We take a 5 gal bucket ,fill it with liver, spleens, lungs ect. then pour blood over it and freeze it. Run hot water over the bucket and out pops your yote cicle. I'll place them around variious areas to see if they are eaten. Once you find a place where they have cleaned one up. You are ready to hunt just place another. Hawks love these thing also!

Beach Dude...you know this from experience? Coyotes are the most difficult wild animals to hunt in North America. They're very smart at staying out of harms way. Their nose, ears, and eye-sight are among the best.

I don't know what Beach Dude's problem is with wearing a ghille suite hunting coyotes but, from my standpoint, it becomes a question of stealth. There have been many times I wished I had the benefit of wearing one while hunting yotes. Sometimes low topography and limited cover can be traversed, without alarming adjacent critters, while making a set-up. It's just one more tool to have in one's bag of tricks. I generally shoot over 150 yotes a year and being inconspicuous in the hunting area has spelled a huge degree of my success.
By the way, were you calling him a off-red color or were you trying to spell moron?
