.. It took a long time for me to get started on'em also.. And it still isn't a common occurance to be successful even tho the population is expanding a good deal.. Even so, I have fun getting out calling after a long deer season of sitting still.. If nothing else I see a lot more of the woods and there's nothing wrong with that..I live in Mississippi, and we have many coyotes in my area, I have tried to call them with mouth calls, electronic calls and have had no luck. I have tried in the woods, in fields and I don't know what is wrong!
