Going on what I see around here, coyotes will usually approach a caller or a smell (dead pig) from downwind. But if they are just traveling or roaming, they can be anywhere. As for shooting places or positions, I prefer to be up high if possible (ladder stand or climbing stand). If I was hunting from the ground, like I used to when deer hunting, I carried a shooting stick. Nothing fancy, but just a light branch with a fork on the top end and cut to the length I'd need to shoot from the stool. That worked fine for deer if the wind was right, but I'd get more seriously camo'd up for coyote. Those sneaky rascals can just glide in on you and be almost impossible to see as the day gets later. As for bobcats, I don't think they care as much about wind direction.
