Central California Cayote Hunting

Coyotes are one of the smartest animals in California. They range from the deserts to some of the highest mountains in all types of environments.

A true scavenger, the coyote, will eat almost anything, animal or vegetable. Although their diet consists predominately of small rodents and rabbits, they also prey upon large animals such as deer, cattle, and sheep. A typical diet may contain up to 40% plant material.

Central California Cayote Hunting Locations

We hunt these animals from the valley floor, along the San Joaquin River, to the foothills and mountains of the Sierra Nevadas. We use calls (electric or mouth) as well as motion decoys. A coyote has superb hearing and sense of smell, but their sight is very surprising. It is very important you have a natural blind or wear full camouflage, especially over your face and eyes. Coyotes can be out during the day, but are mostly active at night or in low light conditions. We try to be out hunting at those times. In most of the locations we hunt, it is a good idea to have a shotgun ready with buckshot, but a rifle in just about any center fire caliber will work just fine and is your primary weapon.
