Default coyote hunting help

My brother and I have only been coyote hunting a few times. We live in West Virginia. When we go at night we use a coleman flashlight with a red lens. The flashlight is very powerfull until we put on the red lens. We have called them in to about 50 yards, But we still can't see them with our week light. Also, How do you hold the light and fire your weapon? Thanks for the help

use the red light until theyre up close, then blind them with the spotlight and POWWWWW. have your brother hold the light and you shoot or vice versa.

Definitely check your local sporting goods store. The lights that mount to your rifle with a red lens, I have seen sold as either a 250 yd or 350 yd range, that should be plenty.
