The farm i hunt is small, about 100 total acres. I am the only one hunting on it that i know of. I just got a foxpro and on my 2nd time out i called in a coyote after about 10 mins. It poped out of the brush about 20 feet away on my right. I was turning to get a shot and it started to jog away. Being my first hunt i got excited and fired, i missed. i could have waited for a better shot but what can you do about it now. I was using the lightning jack call and thats the only one i used on that stand. So heres my question, how long before i can go back and hunt the same farm.? I have read alot about call education and it has me worried i messed up that spot.! lol thanks.!

I called in a yote, missed 4 shots, and he wasn't even running fast! I was back a couple weeks later & he showed up to the same stand. Got him that time, as this time I brought a rifle with a scope & didn't miss.

I've called in critters at other stands, and have nothing show the rest of the season. Who knows if they were smartened up OR if they just weren't around, maybe even killed by another hunter. Hard to say.

My guess is there are a lot more coyotes that travel that property than just the one you missed, so I don't think you messed up that stand with just one miss.

I just called in three coyotes yesterday ! Didn't have a clear shot on them and then they went undetected off in the brush and never saw them again! Idk if they smelt me or just didn't buy the ecaller and decoy but I wanna go back today ! Ya think that's a bad idea ?

Yep. You might try a different time of day, use a different sound just in case, but there are most likely transient coyotes around.

I've called in coyotes that I or a client has missed the very next day with a different sound and a little different angle in the same area.
