    Saturday I went out coyote calling but it started out pretty slow. No coyotes seen or heard on the first 5 stands.

    I did spot a coyote about 80 yards away when I was stopping my truck to open a gate.

    It wasn't a very smart coyote.

    On my next stand I was in a big canyon bottom calling down the canyon against a breeze that was blowing up the canyon. The canyon bottom was about 100 yards wide where I set up.

    I set my Fury on flat ground in the bottom of the canyon and I got in some rocks above the caller about 20 yards away from the caller.

    I played some distress rabbit sounds and after about 15 minutes I played Female Sore Howl for about 1 minute, waited two minutes or so and then started playing Female Sore Howls again.

    Female Sore Howls had been playing for about 30 seconds the second time when I spotted a coyote straight up the steep canyon side about 500 yards away and it was almost straight up.

    Then I saw another coyote above the first coyote. They were just standing there looking down towards my Fury. I switched to Coyote Pup Distress 3 on full volume and both coyotes started running down the steep mountain straight for my Fury.

    I started taking some pictures but the coyotes were to far away to start with.

    By the time they got to the bottom of the canyon they were very close together.

    I was taking pictures of them as they crossed the dry canyon bottom heading for my Fury.

    The coyotes were about to my Fury so it was time to put down the camera and use the shotgun.

    In the above picture you can see how big the male is compared to the female.

    I got a video of the coyotes right in front of the caller but I have not had any luck getting it to download to Photobucket.

    Nice job. They were in a hurry weren't they. You got some nice pictures of them coming in to the Fury. What camera were you using?

    That Rem 700 is a 243 win. I do have Rem 700s in 223 Rem, 22-250 and 260 Rem.

    Great job Bob! Thanks for sharing. I too have found that the Pup in Distress will usually help them commit. I have not had much chance to call lately but will certainly get out during the Christmas holidays when my sons are out of school. Merry Christmas.

    Dang you sure make it look easy, way to go.
    My only coyotes with a shotgun have been while I was turkey hunting.
    Awesome pictures, thanks for posting.

    Take a predator hand call with you when you turkey hunt.

    When you are done trying to call in a turkey instead of leaving try calling in a coyote for about 5 to 10 minutes and then leave. Close to 50% of the coyotes I call in are there within 5 minutes.

    A Pup In Distress works year round or only in the Spring?

    I use a Fox Pro.
