Coyotes tend to shift to an approach from the downwind direction in the final 50 to 100 yards. You need to position yourself if possible to force Ol Wily to come in cross-wind due to trees/brush.

"Eager eaters"? No telling from which direction or how fast they'll come in on the call.

Keep learning!
Watch every bit of video footage you can!
It is the next best thing to actual experience and can clue you in to how or what a coyote is thinking if/when you call one in. This may help you take a shot before they bug out!
There are a bunch of free videos on Bucking The Odds.

Coyotes are smart! Like Art said, if they have a choice they will come in to a distress sound from the downwind side!
They have one of, if not the best, nose, eyes and ears in the woods!

Keep studying and have some patience and it will happen!
Oh yeah, take a camera! We love pics!
