    Has anyone tried using a robo dove as a coyote bait when you call them in?

    "What is a robo dove?"

    They're battery powered dove decoys with wings that spin.

    They work best when set up on a post. Between waist and chest high (where they're visible to flying doves) is ideal. Doves flock in to them.

    You can also go to Cabela's and they have some items that will jump around and look like a wounded rabbit. They are nice items for any hunt.

    Just go to the feed store and get a live chicken. Tie it to a stake or leave it in a cage. Nature will do the rest.

    Landshark, thanks for reminding me of almost the same trick.

    Get two grown cats. Say 2 male or two female cats. Put both in a small basket that has just enough room to just move around. Turn it upside down and then put a good rock on top. They will start to fight and make alot of noise. The ox and coyote will here the diner bell and come running. Just don't shoot the cats. LOL. Both love cats and will go after them if they can.

    Anything that moves will help. I get some to come in with a mojo crow and distress calls.

    I've tried a Quiver Critter, but so far have not connected with a coyote with it. So the jury is still out.
