Mouth call recommendations for coyotes

Recommended Posts

What do you guys use? I don't want anything crazy expensive and would prefer something off the shelf if there is anything worth while. The big C by me has the Ruffidawg calls. Has anyone used them?

I've got a drawer full of calls - not counting the ones that are permanently assigned to the white backpack.

Honestly, yotes are not music critics - and just about any one of the dead bunny calls will get the job done as well as the next one. I have settled on a couple of them simply because they are wooden bodies (don't freeze to my lips) and sound good to me. Those are mostly Sceery models, with a Faulks and an old Weems Wildcall. Don't forget to get a squeaker, really nice for pulling them in that last few yards....

If you decide to try howling, there is a lot more variation, but I have found that an open-reed call - one of the cheaper models with a large bell - is the easiest to blow. The Johnny Stewart CYC2 is easy to learn on, and does a decent job. After that, if you're like me you will start buying and trrying a bunch of them, tossing most aside into the "maybe I'll use it later" pile.

Oh my God! This is hilarious. I swear no two callers agree on what actually works (even though they are both right).

I have had good luck with bunny calls in Minnesota, better luck out West with the howlers, and I can't stand the Red Desert Howler (its in my "maybe I'll use it later" pile of calls with the Primos Hot Dog). Favorite howlers are the Johnny Stewart and a Sceery one (both open-reed) None of the "easy to blow" calls that I have tried are worth the packages they come in (and I swear I've got 'em all).

Roughly the first 50 or so critters I called in were with the Weems and a Lohman dual-tone. The Lohman was actually the more successful, but I no longer use it. Go figure. I can't even agree with myself!

I love my hot dog howler, but not so much with the red desert one. I have howled plenty in, mostly you need to have more patience and not so many howls, two three and wait 5 min and then go to the rabbit blues. Just depends, but i do most of that at night in mn, nd is a different story.

I use Tweety alot and have a lot of luck with it, but the absalute best calls I've got are from a guy that custom makes them and sent me 4 calls as a gift when he found out that I was deployed. I will have to look at the calls to get the name of the guy, but they are by far the best I've used so far.

I've also used the "easy to use" type of calls like the EZ-Howler and let me tell you; There is NOTHING easy to use about them!!!

    • Little late to the answers, but I switched over to NAP KILLZONE and could not be happier.  They are the cats meow.  I like them better than the Rage I was shooting before.  The pictures are from a doe I shot at 13 yards.  Needless to say she didn't go more than 30 yards before she piled up.
    • The whole reason behind getting a new bow is that my 17 year old son is now standing 6'3" and the little bear bow he has is too small for him.  He likes to bow hunt, but with sports and school activities he doesn't get out a ton, so i am going to crank down the poundage on my Elite and he wants to shoot that.  So Dad is in the market for a new bow.  I can't say a bad word about the Elite, its been a great bow for me.  I have always shot a double cam bow and was just looking for opinions about what other folks like.  Not sure if a solo cam will be smoother with the draw or not.  Soon as I have time, I want to get out and shoot some bows and see what I like.
    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
