THE SILENT TREATMENT
To successfully hunt coyotes during winter, it’s often easier—and more effective—to leave the predator calls at home
Too many hunters think the only way to hunt coyotes is with a predator call, and that’s a big mistake. After all, the smartest coyotes have learned to avoid those suspicious noises, making the calls all but useless. And besides, hunters managed to harvest plenty of coyotes long before predator calls ever came along. In fact, I take many of my coyotes each winter without resorting to calling, instead using these proven tactics. Modify them to suit your local conditions and you, too, can become a silent coyote hunter.
