A landowner that lets us hunt on his land, uses chickens. He hangs them up from a tree limb, high enough that the coyotes have to stand on their hind legs or jump for them. He usually puts them just inside the woods near some fields.

You might want to caution your landowner friend to check the laws regarding the use of live bait , it isn't legal in many places .

Sorry forgot to mention that they were already dead. He owns chicken houses and he uses the ones that die. I hunted about 80 yards from one, one day and the smell wasnt very pleasant.

A friend of mine showed me a great way to bait a coyote, he showed me some video from a few of his coyote hunts I cant beleive how well it works he used turkey decoys put a flock of about 6 decoys together on the edge of a field he says you have to be quick on the trigger or you may end up having to buy a couple new decoys one of his videos shows a coyote run off with a decoy.

What about a road kill rabbit and use a cotton tail in distress call. Anyone tried that? I have been running the roads trying to find a wabbit that fell victim to a car to try this out. Think it will work?

It outta work great. Doesn't matter what condition the rabbit is in, it'll still smell like rabbit. All the coyote wants is an easy meal, and he'll come running when he thinks he's found one.
