    You are going to have a hard time to get anyone to tell you about a spot that is good for calling, since it takes a lot of time scouting and alot of set ups to get animals. I would recommend getting out and making stands and enjoy the winter. It might take a 100 stands to get anything, but the winter is a great time to get out. One thing I will say is set up on sign and enjoy yourself.

    Default Coyotes

    Try Tailgaters or the Mugshot---usually a few coyotes there.

    There is a faster way off the mountain, might hurt a little though.

    Red, your best bet would be to hook up with one or two local callers, to cut your learning curve a bit and have some fun.

    Default Calling in the valley

    Red,
    Would like to help you out, but the valley is where I trap and I already get enough competition for fox and coyote from other callers. You might consider Houston and points north on the Parks highway. The farther you get from major towns and the further you walk in from the road, the better your chances will be. You might also consider the lower end of the Palmer Hayflats from the Fairview Loop access point. Good luck!

    Big Lake/Houston north has quite a bit of pressure too...

    redsox - The reality is that while plentiful, the fox and coyotes around palmer and wasilla are called to quite a bit. I'm no expert, but I've tried calling in those areas and have been very unsuccessful. That being said, it doesn't hurt to try. Find some area with tracks and spend some time blowing on a call - you may get lucky. As others have hinted at, though, the further away from town you get and the further away from a road, the better your odds. Where you were hare hunting a few weeks ago might be a better area to try. Animals are more active at first light than in mid-day, and you might even want to try calling by moonlight the next time we have a full moon.
