Coyote Hunting

Coyote hunting is one of my favorite types of hunting and is the reason I created this site. My goal here was to share with you some of my experiences in coyote hunting and share what has worked for me. I have experimented with hunting techniques and discovered things that work, and others that don’t. Throughout this site, I have shared these tips and techniques, and I hope, if you took the time to actually read what I wrote, it was of some use to you. I do not claim to be a hunting expert, nor do I feel like I am an authority in the sport. What I have suggested in other post may not work for you, I just know that I have had success in the past and can get lucky more often than not.

Whether or not you read my advice and actually try it for yourself is completely your choice. I simply wrte this stuff because it is something I enjoy doing and enjoy writing about. I figured with all the time I have put into coyote hunting and the things I have discovered, I would share with the rest of the world. I know that it would have been nice to have someone tell me all these things when I first started this hobby of mine (although experimenting was half the fun). If you are a beginner hunter, you will probably find some useful information on this site. If you are already somewhat experienced, this site may be a waste of your time.

Although predator hunting is not the most popular sport and the group of us on the net is probably small, I do know there are those of you out there who enjoy the sport just as much as I do. Chances are, you could show me, and the rest of the world a thing or two about coyote hunting. So, if you have stumbled across my little site and feel you could add to what I have already written, please don’t hesitate to comment and let us in on what experiences you have had and what has worked for you. One of my favorite things is chatting with my hunting buddies and finding out what tricks they use to make them successful hunters. I would love nothing more than to have a group of people on here who regularly share ideas on hunting.

If there is anything you should take away from my site, it is to get out in the field and try things out for yourself. I didn’t become the hunter I am by reading other peoples tips all day and never trying anything for myself. You have to experiment. Doing things by the book won’t always produce a successful hunt. I’m not saying researching isn’t important, you should definitely do it. Researching can give you a good foundation and teach you the basics. However, if you really want to rise above the rest, you have to experiment and learn those tricks that nobody else knows. If you put in the time and experiment, I promise you will be successful in coyote hunting.

Coyote Hunting Videos

If you want to spice up your hunting experience and create some entertainment for after the hunt, coyote hunting videos can really do the trick. There is nothing more fun than you and a friend recording a hunting video together and making your own hunting show. It gives you something to show your friends and provides hours of entertainment for those days you're stuck in the house. You can also use the videos to find errors in your hunting and ways to improve.
If you don't already have a good video camera, go ahead and get yourself one. You will also need a partner for the hunt, one to do the hunting, and one to shoot. Now that you have everything you need, you are ready to shoot the video. To shoot a coyote hunting video, you will obviously need to do some hunting, so get out in the field and start rolling.

The person holding the camera should always sit behind the person hunting, and at an angle you can get a good shot of the kill. In order to do this, you will need to figure out the most likely spot for a coyote to come out, and hope that he does. Once you have this figured out, sit so the hunter is between you and the spot you picked out. This will give you the best chance of getting the perfect shot. You don't always have to be rolling throughout the entire hunt, there is going to be a lot of boring moments in there you probably don't care to watch. Just get a good couple of shots of the hunting area and the person who is hunting.

It is also important that the person who is hunting narrates what is going on. Be sure to announce the time, weather conditions, and what kind of action has been seen so far. When a coyote comes out, you obviously need to be quiet, so narration will not be possible at this point. Make sure you get good shots of the coyote and where he is in relation to your location. When it is time for the kill, have your camera zoomed in on the predator. It is important that the two of you communicate so you know when each is ready for the kill.

The film after the kill is just as important as before. You don't have to stop rolling just because the shot has been made. If the hunter missed the coyote, you obviously don't have much to shoot. It there is a kill, keep rolling while you walk up to the coyote. This is the point when adrenaline is rushing and you can be sure the footage will be good. Make sure the hunter holds the coyote up so that the viewers can get a good look. Its also important that he tells what happened as the kill was made. As I said earlier, you can't narrate while the coyote is in the field, so this is a good opportunity to fill the viewers in on the details. The direction he came from, the direction he was moving, how far he was when the shot was made, etc.

Making coyote hunting videos is a lot of fun and they will provide you with hours of entertainment. Don't be discouraged at first if the video doesn't come out like you had hoped. You will get better as you make them. Understanding how it will look on TV while you are shooting takes practice. Once you master this, you will be on your way to becoming the next hunting team for the outdoor channel....well maybe not, but you will have a lot of fun doing it. Remember, you don't have to stop at coyote hunting videos, you can shoot any type of hunting. Use these videos to your advantage and improve your hunting techniques.
