A lot of those questions may depend on where you are planning to hunt. It might be helpful for you to let folks know the general area where you live and the types of terrain where you will be hunting. Then, you might be in a betterposition to get accurate info from a varmint hunter who lives in your vicinity.

Ok heres my OPINIONS on your questions (i say opinions because everbody has there own style and you'll find yours eventaully.)

1.I use 3 types of guns, .233 rem. a .22lr. or a shotgun with #4 buckshot NOT00BUCKSHOT #4 will flatten a fox at 30 yrds. the .223 is FMJ ammo, and the .22 ammo is CCI Stingers.

2. No Bait for me.

3. I sometimes usea old turkey call (diaphragm) but I mostly just wait.

4. I hunt on a game trailnext to a creek in a hilly area,(Yotes will take the easiest path possible.)

5. It varies from day to day.

6. when I do call its usually for 3 min. every 20 min.

7. I stay in my deerstand and don't move.

8.I usemy deerstand because ifcoyotes get spooky they will try to sneak up from behind you, and I can see and shoot farther in a stand than on the ground.

9. I hunt coyotes whenever Im in the mood because theresno closed season here, I hunt foxes when they come in season usually around middle fall.

10. On a game trail with a creek on my left, and a pasture on my right, and I'm right smack dab in the middle of a small forest (10 acres of oak, pine and cedar,)

and one other thing HAVE A GOOD PAIR OF BINOCULERS BECAUSE MY FRIEND SHOT HIS NEIGHBORS DOG B/C IT LOOKED LIKE A YOTE, and all he had was iron sights.
