SUBTLETY AND PATIENCE
Start your appeal with a quiet call. The squeak or soft squall of a small animal adequately represents the prey coyotes prefer. Think mice, rodents, rabbits, and hares. If nothing shows, you can increase the volume and even change to a call that carries farther. Regardless of your choice of prey, wait. Coyotes along roadways and in suburbia are used to being shot at from roads, chased from lawns, and hounded by domestic canines. This means veterans may approach with curbed enthusiasm as they keep their eyes open for traps.
