back to the drawing board R/C rabbit

i found out that my great and coyote filled spot is filled with coyotes but is so over hunted that i wont see a dog without a spot light and food pile so on to a less hunted spot and heres idea # 2
and R/C car with rabbit fur and ears has any one done this and is it worth the time to try it the car i used makes very little to no noise when run slowly but its too snowy needs to melt some before i can get out
it can go over 30 feet before its out of rang and has over 1 hour battery life
its a little smarter than sitting under a dead deer
here are the pics

Not the first time...

I've used something like that. Never for coyotes, but me and a buddy used a simaler set-up to lure in a very smart and call shy Long Beard one year. Brought him in the extra 50 yds.

That could very well work.

You, my friend, have too much time on your hands.

It's already been done. Good idea, though.

Didn't you say that this area has limited visibility?

Sound is the best attractant. Use it in conjunction with a decoy for good results.

But...

If you're driving/watching the car while driving your decoy around, you're going to make movements...and you'll be distracted.

I'd still recommend the Weasel Ball, or the Decoy Heart.

Coyotes are smart, and are not easily fooled. Stick with it and you'll get there.
