I am hunting in central NY. When using a mouth call I was wondering how long I should call for when hunting in woods for fox and coyote? How long should each call be for and rest periods be? If I use a cass creek call could I leave in on the whole time or turn it off and on over and over again.
"A deer hunter knows which woods the deer are in; a bowhunter knows which trail they use; but a trapper knows where his quarry will put his foot".
The Thin Blue Line
"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
I am no expert,I will blow on the call for a minute and watch for a few. Do whats comfortable for you. as far as the electric caller ,I would leave it on. less movement. What ever. I hope you have good luck. ed

I do just about what ed has described. I use a mouth blown call. Call for a minute or two then wait ten minutes or so. I use a rabbit in distress call, with a built in mouse squeaker. The last 45 minutes to an hour of daylight seem to be the best. That's when I have had the most success in seeing them. Also a fox will come in to the call as well, keep you eyes peeled an movement to a minimum and you should have good luck! It takes a lot of time thats for sure!! But fun!
I'm a caller on the eastern side of NY. When hunting in wooded areas, I do the same as previously posted. Stay up to 20 minutes this time of the year. Electronic callers... Depends on what I am using for sounds. Bird sounds (woodpecker/squealing bird) are on for a few seconds, pause for about 1 full minute, then on again (few seconds) off for 2 minutes, and repeat. For each five minutes passing, allow a minute or two longer of slience before sounding the calls again. This makes the K9s search for the sounds. Puppy whines and kittem cries do well this time of the year especially the pups. Leave the elect. caller on, but vary the volume from low up to mid volume (no higher). You want to make it seem like something is chasing/dragging it around. Finding a loud mouse squeaker (mouth call) and creating the puppy and kitten disstress sounds with that has worked better than most hand calls I have used. Rabbit disstress sounds, same way. Remember, in the woods, it's better to keep the volume lower than you would in open farm land. Good Luck!!
