    Has anyone had any luck calling in coyotes in NC. What kinda calls and call sequences did you use and setups did you make? Are you hunting in the woods or open fields? And how long do you stay put between setups? Just wondering if anyone is having as much trouble as I am at consistantly calling in and killing coyotes in NC. Their numbers need to be controled for the preservation of all others species.

    I have called in and killed 3 coyotes since deer season went out. We have an unbelieveable amount here in Chatham county. I usually set up on field edges or in bottoms or really anywhere near a thicket and use a few howls to start off then rabbit/fawn distresses ever 5 minutes. I usually stay about 20-30 minutes at each setup

    Great Job Cole.
    Congrats Cole!!!I myself have killed 6 Yotes but have never had much luck calling them in...They are very smart. I shot 4 while deer hunting and 2 came to turkey calls. The ones you kill in the spring are very nasty after they loose their winter coat but the ones in winter are beautiful with a real thick coat but i agree that they need to be thinned out and with the weather we been having it should be a good time to hunt them. I did a head mount of the first one i killed. I'll share a pic.

    thanks
    thanks gobblin i want to mount one like yours if i shoot a real big one or a black one. My uncle saw a solid black one hunting this season but didnt shoot him because it was in the rut and didnt want to spook deer but i shoot everyone i see

    Mount
    Yeah that was a female with a beautiful coat and i got it mounted because i had my young daughter with me when i killed it. I planned on getting it full body mounted but the taxidermist said 'Yeah Right lol' I hit him with a 270 but yeah i have let some walk during deer season because i had high hopes lol. I seen a big 1 first day of black powder and let him go....I have also seen pictures of solid black 1s but i have never killed a black 1. I have flipped a bunch of people out when they walk in and see that mount behind the door.
