1. Game Trail Ambush
Find a deer path running through the woods and you're in business, says McKendree. Bring your shotgun and set up about 10 yards off the trail and downwind of your electronic caller. Try calling softly at first, alternating with a hand call if you prefer. Expect a coyote to circle downwind of the distress cries, so take your shot when he crosses the path. You should also be prepared for a coyote to trot in along the trail, says Johnson, so the thicker the cover you select, the better. Be ready for a snap shot if the coyote abandons a cautious approach and moves in fast.
