A First of all, scouting is essential. You can't call coyotes where there are nocoyotes. In southern Michigan, we have a lot of farmland and pockets of coverconnected by fencerows. My most successful setups have been early in themorning, just after sunrise, on days when there's a lot of snow on the ground.Ideally, I look for fencerows that lead into thick cover, swamps or swales. Ifcoyotes are there it shouldn't take long to get a response. If I get nothingafter 20 minutes or so, I pick up and move on.
