Gut pile, no good!

Sounds like your using the wrong call.

be very careful on how much you call cause calling to much can actually scare but really if you have a couple of squirrels or bad rabbits lay them out and see what happens

My brother was given or read a tip on how to put out a bait that supposedly lasts a long time in the winter and keeps them coming back. I can't verify it since he has not tried it yet... A trimmed up deer or animal carcass is a good start, then make a "bait-sicle" from pouring warm water along with any blood, scraps or trimmings you have into a greased bucket and then freezing it. Pull ice chunk out of bucked and put it out at the bait site and they supposedly will keep working it for a while. This sounds like a lot of work though, and I would think covering more ground and using calls would be more effective.

A friend that hunts bear in central Saskatchewan says hes seen coyote tracks around his baitstands, he uses rotten meat and kitchen grease. I have shot coyote in southern Alberta in the past and usually just go back a few hours later to the field I was shooting gophers in earlier.

I tried to answer a while ago but used a vulgar word to describe a female coyote a commonly used term in dealing with females of the dog family and was censored will try not to use correct terminology in the future.
Contact your Game and fish they in the past had a sprayable essense that announced that there was a female in season in the area .Males will come for a chance to breed ,females will come to defend territory.Walk with your nose to the wind.
Good hunting

I've heard that calling before a storm is the best time. Also to think like the rabbit. The way it was put to me is that if you were a rabbit that had claws in its back how would you scream? probably pretty loud. So don't be making wimpy little calls on the rabbit squealler.

Use live chickens. tie them to a tree or stake in the ground.

Some one didn't like my answer so I think I should elaborate on it. Don't let the cyotes eat the chickens. Strategically place them outa harms way or put them in a crate so a pretador has no chance of getting them. Should've explained that.

If you were in tree stands when you saw the coyote earlier and were on the ground when not seeing coyotes try some sent blocker. "Scent Shield," works well. There are others that also work well including the brand that W-mart sells.
