    I called in a black coyote but no white markings like yours just SW of Mena about 3 miles last year. I had set up about 80 yards in the woods near a thicket with a shotgun hoping to call in a bobcat when I saw him coming in a pasture. He looked into the woods then drifted away so I changed to pup distress and he returned to the field edge and stared into the woods but would not come in and finally left. I believe if I had a decoy set up he might have come into shotgun range? Steve/"Dermott"
