Heck, there are many times when we have all our ducks in a row and the coyote still gets the upper hand on us.

Hhmmm...maybe you need to invite me up to your neck of the woods so I can experience for myself some easy coyote hunts.
We didn't hunt coyotes in the woods. We hunted them in open country. The countryside here is divided into concessions roads.

Some concession roads are drivable by vehicle in winter some are not and were travelled by foot, ATV or snowmobile. We'd place hunters on concessions ahead of the race and use radio to communicate with the guys at the back of the race.
