Coyote hunting is a sport the whole family can enjoy. When taking the younger generation out to call in some coyotes make sure they are dressed properly so they can better handle the adverse conditions. You also want to pack plenty of snacks and water. The kids aren’t as likely to enjoy suffering like their crazy parents are. We can be a lot more focused on the hunt than the children. Also make sure they are wearing good camouflage to blend into the terrain, kids can get restless so the better they blend in the more likely it will hide their movement.
Before getting into a spot that you know has a good coyote population it is always best to set up a couple times before in a less desired area to work out any of the kinks like restlessness and loud talking. Teach stand etiquette to the youngster before hitting the coyote honey hole/s.
It is also good to get your son or daughter their own calls to practice on. This will prevent your favorite custom predator call from getting ruined or all slobbery, plus they enjoy it and once they are able to blow the correct tune it is one less thing you have to do
Coyote Hunting can be far more exciting than other types of hunting for kids, because you make multiple stands and see a lot of country. Make sure they understand and respect firearms before taking them to the field. It is your job to make sure they are safe .
Remember to be safe, patient, and most of all have fun!!
