31 miles on the sled 14 sets -15* very little wind , and bright and sunny.
We saw a LOT of coyotes but we just could not get them to come in.
Did have one get about 500 yards and sit and laydown  bark and howl back.
We worked it for about 40 minutes, no closer. I was packing the 6 and finally planed a shot.
I'm about ready to shoot and the boy tried a rabbit sound AS soon as the sound hit the dog it JUMPED up and spun around and ran off. DANG I tried a 500 yard running shot but to no avail.
We see that a lot Bunny cries = hunters. There just a warning call to public land coyotes.
BUT after 14 sets we try every tool in our kit, time and time again we get the same reaction.
I think it's time to put that one away .OuchConfused
