I will be competing in a calling contest this weekend on public ground in southern Indiana.

Much of the terrain is forest with lots of hills and ravines, very different from the flat land I hunt regularly. Do any of you have experience in timber sets and calling coyotes in heavier cover? Any tips or tricks different from flat land calling?

This is from a web site I found, where they were talking about hunting in a forested area of NY state, hope it helps (prob. won't....but I tried)


The squeal of a distressed rabbit is hardly music to the ears, especially when it has been going on for 40 seconds.

But that's what it takes to call in these winter predators. Start strong and long — if you have something chewing on your leg, you are not going to whimper.

You can use an electronic call, such as a FoxPro digital system about the size of a 6-volt lantern that runs on four AA batteries, but mouth-blown rabbit squealers give you the most control.

After finding a set-up area with a cross wind, sneak into the location and then wait five minutes to let things settle down.

Call for 40 to 60 seconds and wait five minutes while looking carefully.

A second series of squeals may be necessary, followed by a wait and even a third series and wait might be good. If nothing happens, change locations.

Predator hunting and calling is either a relatively fast-action sport or a bust.

When you get up from your position, do it slowly and quietly, so if there is something there, you'll have an additional chance.

If you shoot a predator, don't move. They seldom are alone, and you might have a chance of taking a second or even a third.

Good luck Dawgdad.

Like Gelan, I have very limited experience at critter callin', although I have whistled in the odd fox, but I doubt that will be of any use to you mate.

Cheers, Vince

Suzanne summed it up very well.

Good luck this weekend Dawgdad. I've called in heavy timber areas before in north Idaho, and NW Montana. All I can say is when things happen, they happen quickly. It's a tough way to hunt coyotes. Have fun. Very Happy
