    Default Best time of day...?

    When, have you noticed, is the best time of day to get out and call? I'm off for about the next week and really need to start doing this... I've got a few spots I'm going to hit, just wanted to check with you guys and see what time of day I should try to hit them. Additionally, do you change up your calling routines/times at different times of the day?

    First off dont forget that coyotes are the only thing open right now (except under DLP, of course) but earlier in the winter around christmas time back when I was calling alot around 11pm seemed to be a good time

    Gotta love how we just ASSUME no one reads the regs. IF I was poaching, which I'm not, I don't think I'd be asking for advice on here. I have a few days off to try to call in some COYOTES in UNITS 14, 13, & 16, and was curious of you guys have any advice about what time of day to call and if/how you change up your calling at different times of the day.

    Not really directed at you FFG, just in general. I'm guilty of it as well. I should probably work on it, I'm focusing on coyotes. I know most people go after other stuff, but I'm looking solely for yotes.

    if we get another cold snap you might want to try hunting during hte middle of the day when the sun is warmist, but I think we are past that part of hte year, so I don't really know. Ya might try night hunting with a full moon

    Ah my little drugged up buddy yes for unit 14 is closed but unit 13 is open for fox as well. I don't really hunt in unit 14 anymore, I baited last year but not this year.

    Its the drugs man just go easy don't fight it man... You are tripping man... Put on some jefferson airplane and let yourself go....

    What I'm saying unit 14 is closed to hunting fox and just about everything else except for coyote. But in unit 13 it is open for fox, certain parts of 13 you can hunt wolf, coyote etc. Just remember not all of us are hunting in unit 14, there is more to life than big lake, Ak.
