True, but I have to conciously and continuously keep my self in check so as to not call and change calls too frequently.

It may sound odd, but after a dry spell and not wanting to dish out more $$ for yet more calls I whipped out a turkey call and used it as I normally would for turkey and actually brought in two adults and a youngster in one evening. I was set up between CRP and a cut wheat field. Never hunted turkey in an area like that, but it did bring in the song dogs.
I've had several turkey hunters tell me they called in coyotes while tyring to call in turkeys.
Sometimes I think just using something a little different will stroke their curiosity enough to get them to come in.
Best Regards

I have no doubt that coyotes visualize turkeys as just more yummy-tasty, and would quite happily go see if there is a chance for supper...

I know domestic turkeys often times end up as a crime scene. My next try was actually gonna be a turkey call of some type. When hunting semi small areas they get used to the same calls pretty quick.

I had called a coyote accidently with a pig squeal once. I didn't think the pig squeal was gonna work on pigs and calling a coyote wasn't on my mind. I was not prepared for the coyote that time
