Did not see or here or thing. Get a text from my buddy at 630 this morning that there is a yote howling behind his house and he is close. Right place, wrong time I guess

Like whitetail hunting (x1000), your first time in is your best chance at success.
Coyotes are probably one of, if not thee, smartest North American game animal...you may dupe them once with a given call from a given spot, but chances are if you don't kill them that time...they won't come back to that spot or that call for a long time.
I can remember reading articles from dedicated predator hunters (hunt them like many of us hunt whitetails, year round scouting, some year round hunting, etc)...that they will only call a spot once and then let it sit maybe for several weeks to several months. Or if property size permits, they'll wait for an alternate wind to hunt the other side of the property weeks later with a different call.
Of course, this all depends where you are at, time of year, type of winter, competition for food, etc. But the bottom line is, they aren't dumb...and don't come in easy. Getting them in RIFLE range is hard enough...shotgun range is just downright difficult to impossible in some areas IMO.
Good luck, keep at it...they're definitely a challenge!

A motion decoy is great to have. Once they see it it's game over. They charge it. Wait until they grab it to shoot. They grab the decoy then realise they made a mistake. They will stand there a second or two or start to walk slowly away. This is when you shoot. You know the range is good and they are easier to hit.
Chicken breath down!
