Finding areas to hunt coyote is relatively easy, the Coyote is widespread, and found in all of North America. With such a large area to hunt with so many different terrain, it is impossible to suggest any one area that is most suitable for coyote hunting.
No matter the area you are planning on hunting, coyote do prefer cover, they will move out from cover for a meal, but they generally will not travel in the open. Look for areas that offer a combination of dense to moderate cover, but that offers you the ability to see for a good distance in all directions. If you can't find this perfect combination, it is more important to see a good distance than to have moderate cover immediately around you.
Locating coyote is fairly easy, tracks and scat are dead giveaways, as is talking to local farmers and others who work in or around the woods.
you can also locate coyote by simply driving around possible hunting areas at dawn and dusk and listening for coyotes calling to each other. Stop every mile or so and listen for 5-10 minutes, if you here coyote calling, mark the location on a map and keep going, with a bit of practice you can pinpoint the probable location of the pack.
Remember, public land is getting increasingly rare, check with the land owner before hunting. Chances are they will let you hunt coyote on there land, even if they did not let you hunt deer. It seems nobody likes coyote, especially deer hunters and cat owners.
Good Luck and Happy Hunting
