Kauyon (Patient Hunter) is one of the two major military doctrines of the Tau Empire, the other being Mont'ka.[1]

The Kauyon is essentially an ambush, where the enemy is drawn by use of a "lure" into a carefully prepared killing zones. The lure can literally be anything - from the allied squad to the vital object. The force of the Patient Hunter deployed in such a way that they can attack the enemy using all suitable advantages. True experts of this tactics may compose so many levels of plans within plans that the enemy realise that all of his actions have been predicted and managed by the Tau only at the annihilating ending of its battle.[1]
