I've always planned on getting around to it, but every time I saved up for a nice electronic caller, I'd either have to put it back into the family budget, or I'd find something else I just had to have. From what I understand though, a remote controlled electronic caller is the prime way to go. Also, some kind of decoy would probably help too.

up here all we do is basically get a white bedsheet and cut a couple of holes to see out, then hunker down in a snowbank.  I've got just a cheapo predator call (goverment hunter from cabelas) and i've had really good luck with it.  When you start calling if they are going to come in they will within a matter of minutes if they are hungry. One other thing, when you do finally get them into range when you want to take a shot, simply stop calling.99% of the time they will stop dead in their tracks and sit down........i've never used decoys, but i've heard that a plain white rage tied to a short stick works fine as long as there is some wind..........

good luck

I've never heard or seen that last bit of information. If/when I get around to lowering the coyote populace around here, I'll have to give that one a try.

Check your state regulations to see if electronic calls are legal to use for predators.  If so, get a Cass Creek call (below is the link to their calls).  They're really easy to use and relatively cheap (around $25-30).

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
