Brad & Sam came out to Arizona to hunt predators with us in October. Despite being a little warm for calling predators they had a great predator hunting trip, which included 5 coyotes coming to call & 4 grey foxes!
Watch as a pair of coyotes come in fast to a distress sound while on one of our guided coyote calling hunts. The hunter misses the back coyote, but then makes a follow up shot on the 2nd coyote, after the guide gets him to stop.
Coyotes are surely some of the smartest animals on the planet, but they are not humans. Coyotes don’t know exactly what a gun shot is, however they are typically scared of loud noises & humans. Occasionally, coyotes will hold after a shot has been fired & sometimes you can even call them back in.
Keys to increasing your coyote hunting success rate:
Make the first shot count.
If you miss 1 coyote, don’t quit calling & do NOT panic.
Refocus on the next coyote & make it count.
Stay quite until you are sure NO more coyotes are coming or are in the area.
When you book a predator hunt with us, you not only get to enjoy the Arizona Desert & calling predators, you get a chance to hunt with some of the most experienced predator hunters in the world.
We are now booking for the 2015/16 Predator Hunting Season!
Last season we called-in over 50 coyotes, 15 grey fox, 7 bobcats & 1 mtn. lion while hunting with clients
(18 daylight hunts)!
Craig, when should I try to book my predator hunt?
Last year, Lee Murphy & I called in and shot 7 coyotes in 1.5 days in mid-April. With that said, I prefer hunters come between November & March. I would advise to try and book on weekdays, but it’s not the end of the world to hunt weekends. If I had a crystal ball, I would tell you to come 1 day after a major storm system, but that is out of our control and I would not advise waiting to book.
My forecast for this calling season is an educated guess, but we have seen a ton of coyotes and quite a few bobcats during our early season scouting (several mtn. lions and fox). El Nino is suppose to bring wet and cold weather to Arizona, so it may be one of the best calling season we have seen in a few years.
I am out in the field a ton, but feel free to call me at 928.315.5889
or email me at Craig@PredatorExclusives.com to book your hunt.
If I don’t answer or reply immediately, give me a few days!
I will get back with you as soon as I can!
