"Howling" for coyotes

.................... If you are only useing a howler to locate coyotes, you are missing out on some serious action.

Way back when I posted about a Texas pro who said that coyote howling does not work well and that food sounds, KIYI , and puppy whines work better.
You responded to that post that howling was productive. You are so right.
I now resurrected all my howlers, The Red Desert, Sceercy, Johnny Stewart, Magnum and Song Dog Crit-R-Call and the Primos Hot Dog to just mention a few.
Some of the Howlers mimic the female coyote some the male coyote. I tell you I can't wait until later on in the season to play head games with one of those seasoned coyotes. Thats what it takes to get them then. They hear the same dying rabbit over and over and over and they know not to come. You get in there do and Interrogation Howl, Coyote Challenge, KIYI, and throw in a food sound over a 45 minute period and you make them drop their guard.
If anything to would be coyote hunters in the East. Remember not to over call. This is so important. You can call for 30 minutes straight through for fox but not for the Eastern Coyote. When you howl and shut up for about 8 minutes they already know where you are.
Again Mongojo I hope you remember responding to the post I speak of. You even talked about the Austin howler you have. By the way I got me two of them too. The female and the male howler. They do not look like much, PVC with a reed in them but they too work outstanding.
Thanks for posting this topic. I might add that here in the East that hunters should not play around with howling to locate coyotes. You just might call one in and not know it. You need to locate them because how can you call them in here in the East if you do not know if they are there. The population densities are not as great as out in the South West or West. Big thing around here now is to get yourself one of those police or fire sirens and get them to howl to that. then you sneak back in the morning and do some food sounds in the early season or some serious howling to get into their head.

I only have 3 or 4 different actual coyote howlers... That's not counting open-reed calls like the Tally-Ho, which you can use to make passable howls and barks, as well as other sounds. But I also have a couple of howling tapes too... But I only have one BILL AUSTIN call... It is the CALL OF THE MALE COYOTE... I have found that generally it will bring in the dominate males, and occasionally, the entire pack..... But then here, coyotes are the dominate predator...............................besides me.....LOL

I would have to say that my favorite calls are the Crit-R-Calls. LOL
I must have about 200 different predator calls but it's the Crit-R-Calls that I take on all hunts. I have 3 magnums and 2 song dogs. I changed the reeds in all 5. Each one does someting different. Either the old male, old female, young male, young female and pups.
Do you ever still order any of the calls yet so you can drive the neighbors nuts on the porch? The Crit-R-Call Song Dog junior just left the way it comes from the vendor is awsome. Does outstanding pups, KIYI, and gauranteed to drive the neighbors nuts.
