Convergent’s Coyote Hunting Tips
Russ Chastain 11.22.19
I recently received a PR email from Convergent Hunting Solutions, about coyote hunting. We have a bunch of those critters on our hunting property, and they need to be thinned out considerably. After all, coyotes ate my first 2019 deer before I could recover it!
Therefore, I’m ready and willing to learn more about coyote hunting so I can help thin out the songdogs, so I gladly read the hunting tips in the email. And while they are certainly trying to sell their products, there’s also some practical advice in here.
Here’s what they call “Three Hot Tips for Calling in More Coyotes.”
First, don’t give away a free education. With so many new and inexperienced hunters heading afield, it’s common to see older, cheaper calls getting a lot of airtime in the coyote fields. The result is a highly call-literate coyote population, which makes these notoriously wary critters even more challenging to call into shooting range. A call with poor sound quality is a great way to give a free education, which is why a quality call like the Convergent Hunting Solutions Bullet HP Bluetooth electronic call is so crucial to the success of your next hunt.
Second, stick to the basics. Instead of getting fancy with exotic call patterns and advanced hunting strategies, the best way to improve your coyote hunting game is to drill down on the fundamentals. This includes setting up appropriately for wind direction, maintaining concealment, and mastering the use of a good electronic call with a few go-to, high-quality sounds. A premium electronic call helps newbies, as well as hunters of all experience levels, to produce the most consistent calls. Available in the Google Play or iTunes App Store, Convergent’s Predator Pro app features a sound library with the most reliable calls, from cottontail sounds to different coyote howls. The app can be used to wirelessly pair your smartphone with the Bullet HP call up to 300 feet away, with four presets to save your favorite calls.
Third, use better calls to produce better sounds. Many older electronic calls typically feature a horn-style speaker system and run off AA batteries, neither of which is ideal for creating the highest quality of sound. Convergent’s Bullet HP, however, features an integrated Li-ION rechargeable battery and conical speaker design, which is the style of speaker most used for premium sound quality today. Because it produces richer, fuller sound, the Bullet HP is a simple, yet effective way to draw in those extra leery, call shy coyotes that hang up at 400 yards.
The Bullet HP can be viewed on their website. It’s essentially a high-falutin’ rechargeable bluetooth speaker that works with their app (Andriod or Apple iOS) to play pre-recorded calls — or you can use it to play just about anything, including music while you’re relaxing back at camp.
Oh, and it’s also a motorized decoy.
