We hunt with a decoy dog or two, and if you've never tried it, then you are in for a treat. The dog eases a coyotes mind enough that they will let down their guard against scent and sight long enough for you to feed them a little lead. We've got a couple Blackmouth Cur dogs and a couple of Catahoula dogs. The E calls are great, but their popularity has created more and more educated coyotes. I use a Foxpro Shockwave, but around here, you have to be pretty creative with it. An E call combined with a few mouth calls and a dog is a lethal combination. They are fun to hunt, but if you've got a coyote problem, foot holds and snares are the only way to go. If you really want a rush, try a spot and stalk hunt. I've tried hundreds of times, and was even successful twice!


Can you elaborate on the on the decoy dog? That's interesting.


There are some good videos on youtube of decoy dogs, but I'll do my best to explain. Just having a dog hanging out with you will put yotes at ease....even the old salty yotes. A good decoy dog will fight when a yote wants, play when they want, pretend to be interested in a date when they want, all while easing them closer to death. We(she belongs to a buddy of mine) have an old Cattahoula be nice that is spayed, and she plays them like a violin. She will even go find coyotes and bring them in. We've waited over an hour on her to come back, and sure enough she had one in tow. A decoy dog lets you get away with quite a bit more as well. Wind doesn't matter as much, and you can get away with a little movement.
Here are some pics of the Turbo, the Catahoula I mentioned.

That is awesome. I love any thing I can hunt with a dog.

I wonder how you would go about training for that? Having a dog that does it already would make it easy then you could could just monkey see monkey do train them.

It is definitely easier to start a pup with an experienced dog, but it's just like starting a dog on anything. Just start taking your dog and wing it. It's a good idea to start with one that's not gun shy. lol You can put a light drag on a coyote that you've trapped, and let your pups play a little.....or so I've heard. The dog I'm hunting now took a while to come in to her own, but I still killed a few old yotes when she'd just jack around and not get 5' from me.

Thanks, I've been watching video all over the enet the past couple days.

The coyote population is on the rise here. Most days around 10am I see a coyote crossing some where. They are healthy too.

I have a couple pups coming that I was going to use as bay dogs but I may give this a shot also.

We ran them with Walker hounds for years. Coyote can cover a lot of ground before he decides to fight or go to ground.
