Night time but, Dawn & dusk if you don't "want" to use lights.................I don't like to hunt at night.

Rabbit, rodent in distress

Foxpro Spitfire - see below;

I think it's great and works well with a Mojo "critter".


It's not super loud (you can buy extra speaker though)...................but I don't hunt big open prairies.

I stop calling once I think they've heard "me"; I let the mojo critter do the rest.

Buy it directly from Foxpro so you can have it customed program by them; ask for Scott Snook.

Anytime you can get out is a good time to go. They are more active in the morning and evening though. You don't want the wind to be blowing a gale either or they can't here the call. Where you are just started you could save some money and get a cheap mouth call. I use a Tally Ho. They are less than $10 and I have shot more coyotes using that call than any other that I have. If you are willing to spend some money Foxpro is an awesome electronic call. The benefit of electronics is that you can set them up a little way away from you and the coyotes are focused on them rather than on you. It allows you to move a little bit more, but you still need to move as little as possible. Good luck!!! Its a learning game, but extremely fun!

Thats the best advice on yotes, its a learning game. more than likely gonna be very frustrating to start unless your area is thick with unpressured yotes. but the first time one comes at you like its taill is on fire you'll be hooked. good luck and stay at 'em.
