yeah i dont think its so much of a fear thing for them as maybe a distraction or annoyance.about 4 years ago my father and i came up onto a cow moose on an old road. she seemed to be acting kinda strange.as we got to within 75- 80 she headed into the woods just as 2 coyotes came out from the other side.we tried to get a shot at them before they bolted back into where they came out of.they were definately harassing her.we didnt see a calf anywhere but they were up to something...I don't think moose have a lot to fear with coyotes unless there is a lot of deep snow,but I agree it's not the company you want when it's mooseseason.
thanks for the reply Rem.I always kinda figured that with the younger coyotes out and about,it would make for decent calling.The rabbit in distress just seems to be a good go to call year round i guess.To beat the heat i'll try calling first light and last light.When I used to call a lot, I found late August and early September a very good time for the rabbit-in-distress calls. In fact the 1st coyote I ever called in and shot was in the month of August. Lots of younger coyotes out and about and zero hunting pressure. Also, easy to sneak into areas (no crunchy snow) and lots of cover.
