scent killer, white clothing, camo clothing, variety of calls(hand calls or electronic or both), Shotgun or rifle, maybe a decoy, ect.

Basically its up to you on how much effort and patience you are going to put forth. Once you have your first yote you'll be hooked and want more.

AND if you plan on sitting and callin, either get waterproof pants, or use a butt seat to sit on in the snow.

I am also trying to get going in this sport. I have read the regs but am still a little unclear. I am planning on hunting southern MN for the coyotes, and it is alright to use the rifle out there (since its shotgun only for deer), correct? Also, how long do you typically give a stand/calling without any action before moving?

Yes, rifles are okay for coyotes state wide, shotguns work as well. I would give each stand a minimum of 20 minutes before thinking about moving. I have waited as long as 45 minutes before I move to a new location.....

One trick I have done is to sit in my deer stand so my movements and scent are less obvious to the yotes.

It depends on what time of day you are hunting them. morning close just when its getting light and evening when its just getting dark i usually stay a min of 45 min. I only do this because i tried staying longer once and it payed off. I was on stand for 1 hr and had 3 yotes come in just as the sun went down. Its payed off many times staying longer. Now hunting at night i usually wait 30 min and if i dont see or hear anything i move. Same thing if its windy out during all times of the day.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
