    Coyote Calling With Decoy Dogs

    The art of using decoy dogs on coyotes; is certainly not one of the older hunt disciplines out there. It’s rather a new ingenious hunt method of playing on the coyotes natural instincts, how it came about was by basically, hunters taking a dog along for company and noticing the different behaviors and reactions of the coyotes with the presence of having dogs near by or close to the call devices. Just observing the coyote’s reactions around dogs, this was the start and eventually figured out how to use their dogs to play on the coyotes instincts.

    When you shoot a coyote and you send in your dogs to recover, other coyotes in the area do not venture far from the dead or wounded animal, they even forget the noise of the rifle fire over their strong instinctive nature, and will keep a few yards from the dead or wounded animal, not knowing when to retreat.

    What is the better way to way to hunt coyotes, with or without decoy dogs? What are the advantages and disadvantages in running decoy dogs? personally it would be an individuals preference but to answer the question, yes, absolutely, there are many great advantages to running and working decoy dogs, the main one would be that, chances are, you are going to go home with allot more coyote fur running dogs than if you were calling and shooting without decoy dogs.

    This is an absolute fact if you are on your own calling without decoys and you happen to call in 3-4 coyotes, we know that most coyotes hunt in pairs but for this scenario lets say you happen to call in 3-4 coyotes, unless you are an excellent shot and have all the luck in the world on your side, you are not going home with 3-4 of the called coyotes. No matter what a hunters shooting status is, they are probably going to go home with one or possibly two from one calling, which is in general, is excellent by all standards, but if you were running decoy dogs, you would be going home with three, if not four of the coyotes.

    We all know if you call in coyotes, every step from the predator is a curious one, the closer they get the more curious and skittish, all it takes is a skittish coyote to catch sight or even pick up a sent from the hunter shooter and there are out of there, if you manage to take a shot and hit one, you can guarantee that the others are not going to stop after seeing or hearing rifle fire, no sir!, they are going to hightail it out of there as fast as they can and just not going to return.

    Let us look at the same scenario, only this time we have decoy dogs. What happens is, the coyotes are being called and still curious and skittish with every step, a majority of the time, coyotes come in and see the caller or calling device, in a split second, they are about ready to hightail it out of there until they catch a glimpse of the decoy dogs. Coyotes have now gone from being curious and skittish to a defensive predators, they run back and forth with the decoy dogs, not taking their eyes off the decoys for a minute, each time the decoy dogs are drawing the coyotes closer to the stand, close enough for the hunter to take a clear shot.

    If you miss the coyote, they are so focused on the decoy dogs, they will not run far before stopping, they will return and engage with the dogs once again, playing the trolling game, back and forth testing each other, even with rifle fire they are still very focused and engage with the decoys dogs.

    If the dogs manage to draw the coyotes back to the stand, and if a shot is taken, if it's a kill or wound shot, the decoy dogs rush out to engage and recover the dead or wounded animal, if there are other coyotes in the area watching the dogs shake the dead or wounded animal, they turn from curious predator to predator, aggressor trying desperately to help or save the downed coyote. When a coyote is down, the rest of the pack will make several attempts at running in on the decoy dogs, and then run out about 10 to 20 yards, making sure that the decoys don't grab him, every time the coyote does this, he gives the hunter, shooter enough clearance from the decoys to down another coyote.
