great night to hunt, did you see the moon last night, very full and bright. if yuor new you might like to use electronic calls. You could treat it like deer, just before end of light or first light of day, play the wind. Good luck, I'm about ready to go out for an "all night" we plan on hitting a dozen spots. time of day seems to be relative to location, presentation of sounds/call

well..let me say it was a cloudy night for us in Genesse County. We did have some luck 3 coyotes taken. Got busted by more then one coming in, as it usually is, the caller is last one to see dog, and the shooters dont get a chance. Man was it cold! we sat for an averge of 40-50 minutes per spot give or take. Best spots were the same ones that always produce: railroad track/up against swap, which protects our back side, golf course, TONs of visialbity, and a fence that protects our backside, and old abdoned office building in residential neighborhood. WE hit each spot (12) once and then picked out a couple to back track on...This sport is very hard to master in my eyes, I went weeks without seeing a thing, but the moment I bring in more guns/eyes I started to have succes. Sometimes we sit with our backs to each other, other times we just know where each otehr are and have at it. Good Luck and keep trying! It supposed to be clearing up, I hear so we might go at it again monday am time and be late for work!
