One of the best ways to introduce someone to the outdoors is on a predator hunt that involves calling, moving around and, hopefully, a successful ending.
When I started deer hunting 40 years ago the versatile .243 rifle caliber did the trick for my first whitetails. It should work just fine for coyotes, too.
Just because you’re hunting something other than predators doesn’t mean coyotes aren’t around. Be aware and remember these locations for future hunting opportunities.
As you scout and check coyote densities this summer via howling and firsthand observations, be sure to monitor the prey density at the same time.
Popping a few coyotes in a day’s hunt isn’t bad, but hitting double-digits on songdogs is pretty doggone outstanding.
