    They live there but are pretty educated.

    As LuJon said, there are lots of em, but VERY well educated. I call down their once a week in different areas.. close, far out,, day, night.. doesnt matter.. they are their.. tracks, scat.. you name it..but I have yet to call one in.. I run a trapline down their also.. a fox will walk right through my snares and get caught.. but the wiley coyote will come up, pause, and go around..

    Hoytguy,
    Are you using coyote vocals, rabbit distress, combination? Maybe one of those coyote decoy's would help? I hunted with a guy out of state this year and we used the Edge Coyote decoy and it was simply amazing how the coyotes would hone in on that thing and keep on coming. They're definitely not the dumbest canine around.

    coyote decoy would remove any chances of fox coming in to the call, right?

    I'd venture a guess that the coyote decoy would definitely deter fox from coming into a stand. I have one, but only use it in areas where I'm pretty sure there are high coyote concentrations. The Edge Fox decoy might be a good route to take as well, but I don't have firsthand use of that one.

    This is exactly right. There are quite a few coyotes out there mousing. Go out there at night and talk to them with coyote sounds. They will talk to you but good luck getting them in on a prey call.

    Why dont you guys use a snowshoe hide on a string for a decoy... Works well for me
