The timberwolves definitely kill alot of whitetails up North here. We don't see many coyotes, just timbers, I'm about 5 miles from the Canadian border, and YES, I'm all for it being legal to hunt for wolves! They're thick up here!

What's it take to call in a coyote, I wouldn't mind trying to take a few out. I hear them everymorning from multiple directions when hunting near Remer.

I wouldn't want to go crazy buying expensive calls but if people have success with cheap calls let me know what kind to try and I'll do my part.

I'd like to see a wolf season in the future too.

I'm from the midwest and coyotes definatley target fawns in the spring of the year. A friend of mine hunts them from time to time and swears the best bait is the gut pile that is left behind after a fresh deer kill, no calls just climb back up in the deer stand and wait them out.

I'll kill a coyote if given the chance.  I got one with my bow a few years back, but haven't had any opportunities lately.
I've never actually "hunted" coyotes, but will take one if the opportunity presents itself.

I saw more coyotes this season than ever before, and I only hunted half as much as in the past. Several hunts consisted of seeing deer running through the woods, followed by a coyote or a pack of them a few moments later. Pretty well screwed me up.

Sorry guys, a little late to this topic (new guy).  I feel that the best overall call for coyotes is Rick Anderson's "Lil Dog."  It comes with a long and shot range flute.  This call is easy to use and can produce anything from pup yelps to young rabbit distress calls.  The call is about $20.

My brother read an ariticle in Outdoor Life and the author used an air horn to call in coyotes. I don't know if I was targeting them I'd try it, I think I would use a rabbit dying instead, but if that didn't work I'd try it.
If they ever do have timberwolf tags available, I guess a coyote howl works awesome. I guess the timber will come running if they hear a coyote. They use it in Canada quite a bit.
