  • Get out there for the last bit of coyote breeding action. I caught two male coyotes chasing a female coyote as breeding season comes to an end. Eventually a shot presented itself in a safe direction. Check out some unseen coyote behavior in this video.

    The end of breeding season is near but hunters can still get in on some coyote action using female howls. Males obviously respond to the last female howls before the females den up in secluded areas to raise their puppies. Once denning begins, female coyotes will stop broadcasting their locations…

    Calling coyotes is telling a story to convince a coyote to come investigate. Watch the video to hear the love story the Mailman tells to bring in this female coyote during the coyote's breeding season. Estrus, whines, challenges and actual breeding calls work wonders right now, bringing in…

    This year's coyote pups have hit the fields and coyote numbers are the highest they will be for the year. Pup sounds are producing right now so get out there and get on some coyotes.

    As breeding season winds down for coyotes, coyotes go back to feeding heavily. Prey sounds become great again as vocals wind down. Females are less vocal as they seek out den areas and don't want to advertise their areas. Spring means lots of young prey so change up those tactics.

    This hunt took place in Stony Point, NC at Stony Point Nursery and Old Mountain Berry Patch. We were asked to hunt this property from the farmer after there were complaints about the rabbits chewing on his nursery plants and blackberry bushes. We hunted on his property three different times,…

    If you take one coyote out of a double, return a few days later for an easy second harvest as the remaining coyote will stay in the area looking for it's lost partner. This coyote came in within seconds just three days after the harvest of it's partner. Grab those secondary harvests to…

    Go back after those coyotes you had encounters with and pull another harvest.

    Coyotes are coming in to estrus calls,mating and territorial fighting calls. Breeding season is in full swing

    Female calls are productive now for coyotes.

    January means mating season in the coyote fields with males and females answering the calls. Territories are being set and fought for in the coyote hunting world so challenge howls with female calls become go to calls. Female whimpers and whines are best to bring in the males looking for a…

    Running some deer hounds Saturday and they got behind something and chased it around for about an hour. The dogs stopped but kept barking and moving a few feet now and then. I had a gut feeling that it was a bear. Had about a 700 yard hike through the woods to get to them. Got there and saw a big…

    Coyote numbers are at their highest right now as young coyotes are brought to feeding areas to learn to hunt. Vocals are beginning to work really well as the naive coyotes answer howls often and give away the feeding locations. This is the beginning of the time of year to really stack the numbers…

    Coyote numbers are at their highest right now as the pups are beginning to hunt. Naive coyotes are easiest to call as this may be the first time they have heard calls from a hunter. Best calls right now for the Mailman are pup chatter or any pup fighting sounds mixed with prey distress. Mouse or…

    Has anyone seen a Mt Lion In North Carolina??
    I frequently here people say they have seen one. Personally I think they are confusing Bobcats for Mt. Lions. There may be a few out there but I doubt it.
