Looking for a new sound to use when coyote calling? If there are a bunch of hogs in the area, maybe you should consider using a hog call instead.
The "rabbit in distress" call is perhaps the most popular sound predator hunters use when trying to call in a coyote. However, coyotes are smart and it doesn't take them long to learn what's going on. If you're in an area with a ton of feral hogs (like Texas) it might be worth it to use a hog call to bring in some coyotes.
Watch the video to see what I mean.
With as many hogs as there are in Texas, it shouldn't come as a surprise that coyotes eat more than their fair share. After all, they are opportunistic predators and will eat just about whatever they can catch. Regardless of whether it's an injured rabbit, a fawn, or a piglet, an easy meal is an easy meal to them.
You never know what will happen when you turn on that hog call though. A couple of coyotes could come in looking for dinner, or you could have a couple dozen hogs charge out of the woods straight at you. So, be ready because things could get exciting really fast!
