Try Coyote Distress calls or a Female Wimper call. They are Breading now.

This time of year my tactics change. I have had zero success with distress sounds lately. I’ve literally watched dogs mouse around in a field and I’ve thrown several distress sounds at him with no success.
Lately I’ve switched to all vocals.
Start with a female invitation howl.

Coyotes will circle down wind and can smell you and or equipment hundreds of yards away, so set up where you can see down wind. I usually prefer a bit of a cross wind and avoid the wind directly in my face in thicker cover. Make sure you stay on stand longer than what the typical western/Midwestern hunters do. They are usually hunting wide open spaces. I usually stay on stand 1 hour at least and stay on stand for at least 15 minutes after my last call sequence. Oftentimes they will hold up just out of sight and wait for the sound to stop before they close the distance. These two things have increased my success tremendously. However, some days it seems like nothing works. That’s why they call it hunting. Good luck to you.
