All three places will produce yote's for you. But you need to go out and scout and locate the them before you start to hunt them. Coyote's like a lot of animals are animals of the edge. Meaning they will hunt where two different habitats meet. This can be a field along the edge of a woods, or a creek,ditch that runs through a field. It could also be a two track through the woods. Coyote's will follow a path of least resistance when hunting. When hunting in the woods, find an area that allows you the best place to see the yote coming. It's like deer hunting. You have to be able to see the yote first. So don't get into a area thats so thick you can't see. Also try and locate where the coyote are first, so you have idea which way the coyote will approach you. When your hunting fields, you need to break up your outline. Sit with your back to something, and at least camoflage your hands and face. Always hunt with the wind in your face, or hunt a cross wind. A coyote will almost always circle down wind before coming into a call.

If you hunt the open fields it will be best to actually call with the wind blowing straight from you to the place where you expect the coyote to appear. This flies in the face of what most people will tell you, but it simply works. If you have at least 200 yards of open field in front of you, then this is a deadly tactic to use. It is much easier to call a coyote when all things are in its favor including the wind. You have the advantage of knowing the coyotes behaviour and can be ready. I lay prone in the field and point the rifle downwind. I tape a white thread to my gun barrel so that I make sure I call with the wind blowing away from me. In fact, I will not even call an open field unless I have the wind blowing into the area where I think the coyote will appear from. You also gain the edge that the shot will be a face on shot as the coyote will be coming right at you. If you place the dot between the eyes you will get him. The wind plays little effect on the round when hunting this way so the bullet flies true without any drift. I have taken hundreds of coyotes using this tactic and plan on taking hundreds more.
