I have plenty of camo ans a ICOTEC GC 500 and a ICOTEC AD400 decoy the places I hunt is farm land and the longest shot you will have is 100 yards or less.I am hunting with a Savage 17hmr rifle.I went this morning nothing but one of the things I think was wrong was changing the sounds on the caller.Next time I go I am going to stay with one call tone like rabbit in destress .That is hunting stuff I have for coyotes.

Rabbit distress works well for coyotes/fox/bobcats. I don't have experience with ICOTEC, but I regularly use a Fox Pro game call. That coupled with a Outrigger Outdoors Red Eye predator hunting light and I've had pretty good success (I hunt at night mostly). Generally speaking, coyotes should come within 20 minutes in most cases. Depending on how much land you have to hunt, you may be able to do 15-20 minutes at each spot and keep moving along. If you don't have that much land to hunt, then I would wait as long as 45 minutes. I've waited an hour before I called in a coyote but in most cases they aren't around or aren't interested if it takes that long. Bobcats are another story though, I would recommend waiting 45 minutes minimum for bobcats. They move very slowly and require constant attention to keep them focused.


It may be beneficial to get you a decoy as well. I personally use mojo critter decoy and have had good success with it.
