when i first started i used 100ft of camo cord and a rabbit distress call a shotgun and double ot buck. id tie the cord to a small bush use natrual cover to conceal it and keep it low. then id sit with the wind to my back in a natrual blind. blow the call a few times pull the string when i did it. and kept my eyes open for a yote to come in. i was hunting wooded area so they came right in almost on top of me before id see them. but they always came in down wind. longest shot was 50 yds. my buddy used the same technique in montana except he uses a rifle and took much longer shots.

i like the thinking of the cammo cord might have to try that.

That is a good idea, I might try that as well. Although, I use a bow so that will be a long shot but doable. Any other recommendations with calls that you guys use?

go to your butcher and ask for scraps. bait a spot and put a camera on it, if you hit the money, get it established to keep them around and use a wounded rabbit call or pup in distress. the pup in distress should work really good within the next month or 2. ide say for now the wounded rabbit would work better.

scent control is important in close proximity areas. 99 percent of the time they are going to try and wind you before they come in.
deer trails usually make a good starting point or any clear trail. yotes usually take the quietest route in.

Franklin,

Thanks for the info, I am definitely going to get into the Yote's this spring. Something else to shoot during the deer off season.
