    Anyone have bait ideas that have worked? I have a limited area of my property where I can shoot into and would like to bait them to there, instead of calling them to me as they come from any direction and I can only safely shoot one way.

    There was an article in Outdoor Life a couple months ago about a guy in the northeast that gets guts from other hunters' kills and a local slaughter house, freezes them in buckets and then sets them out. Apparently it worked pretty well for him. Said he put it about 150 yards from a stand, around 5-6 yards from a ditch that has approach cover in it.

    The coyotes in my area love chicken! They have dined on mine more than once. I would stroll the farm section of craigslist, pick up a chicken or two for $5 and stake them to a rope in the area of the yard that offers you the safest shooting lane. When they're staked down they often make quite a racket on their own so you may not even need to call. Not to mention the live action will definetely make them more eager to approach and less likely to spot you.

    A liberal chicken works best, they squawk the most.

    cutting their sex organs out and putting in a blender works for baiting atrap i wouldnt see why it wouldnt work for shooting

    Years ago I worked in Beverley Hills late at night. One morning at 4:00 I saw a coyote walking down the sidewalk
    with a toy poodle in it's mouth. Since then I regard them as noble animals and welcome them to my neighborhood.
    If you love your kitty or your rat dog; keep it in the house.
