Tip #1: Choose the Right Gear

Selecting the right gear for a coyote hunt is crucial. First, and this may go without saying, but opt for camouflage clothing that matches your environment as it will help reduce your visibility. Next, make sure you’ve got the right firearm for the job. Invest in a high-quality, scoped rifle with a flat-shooting caliber in order to get more accurate shots. Finally, equip yourself with an electronic predator call for versatility. As a bonus, you can also invest in scent eliminators to mask your human smell and increase your chances of success.

Tip #2: Scout Good Locations

As with most types of hunting, location is key when it comes to bringing down coyotes. Your best bet is to look for areas with a mix of open fields and dense cover, as coyotes often hunt along these transitional areas. It is always best to focus on locations with fresh signs of their presence, like tracks and scat. Wind direction also matters, so choose spots that allow you to hunt downwind of your target area to avoid being detected. If you choose to book your next Colorado coyote hunt with Longmeadow, our expert guides will help you take all of the factors into consideration.

Tip #3: Master Predator Calls

One of the most important things to master when it comes to any type of hunting are calls. When using coyote calls, start with subtle distress calls like rabbit squeaks or bird chirps to pique their curiosity. Gradually increase the intensity of the call, mirroring the rise of urgency in the distress. This can often trigger a coyote’s instinct to investigate and come within range for a successful hunt. Calling in coyotes can certainly be a blast, but you’ve got to know what you’re doing. That being the case, don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our guides with questions or to book your next hunt today!

Tip #4: Understand Coyote Behavior

To succeed in coyote hunting, understanding their behavior is essential. Coyotes are opportunistic and primarily hunt during dawn and dusk. Learning their social structure will help ensure your success, and targeting lone coyotes can definitely be more effective. Pay attention to their body language, such as raised hackles or nervous glances, as these cues can reveal their mood and alertness, guiding your approach. Again, if you’re new to coyote hunting, going out with a more experienced hunter or a trained guide is strongly recommended.
