they are locating each other. people usually vastly overestimate the number of coyotes in these vocal communities.rarely is there more than 3 or 4 in each group. a single coyote can make 5 or 6 different vocalizations in each howling sequence.


They could have fooled me!
I know coyotes don't attack humans, but I tried not to think of the game camera photos showing the coyotes taking down the mature buck.
If you let your mind get away from you, it can freak you out.
Thanks for all the info. I really need to try coyote hunting this winter. I have game cam pictures of some beautiful dogs, black and red.

They are not cool if the howling is between you and your 4 wheeler after dark.

I heard some one evening as I was leaving the stand. Sounded like they were fairly close by, but I knew their sounds could be deceiving. I knew they were more scared of humans than humans are of yotes. Especially since this human is called Moondawg. \:D

To shut em up, I simply fired one round in the ground, thinking that would scare them off. Nope. They kept howling and yipping. I just walked back to the house...looking back ocassionally.

I heard exactly what you described back during muzzleloader season. Pretty cool.



i heard the same thing muzzleloader season. i had a guy that wanted them killed out but now he like he's too good to let anyone hunt them now.

We use to be friends until he accused me stealing stuff for his farm and we had a big knock out drag out. Now he found out who was really stealing stuff and he came by the house and everything trying to get me to work with him and everything but i told him to get lost and not come back to my house.

When I first started hunting, I did not like this sound at all. I agree, these groups sound like 15 or 20 'yotes when they start sounding off. Probably much smaller.

I now enjoy listening to them during these vocalizations. Browtines and I heard this three times on one of our Ohio hunts this Winter.

I have recorded several of these episodes and I enjoy playing them for folks. Freaks some of them out.

A few will sound lot a bunch. I used to deer hunt Benton County. I've seen some of the biggest, prettiest coyotes that Tn has to offer there. Some were as big and healthy as big German Sheperds. I used to sit around the campfire at night and listen to them run deer. When and if they ever caught one the fight was on between themselves. They made some racket.

One afternoon Wildcat and I quit deer hunting early just to set up for coyotes before sunset. We set up in a section of timber between a farm field and a ditch with solid timber on the other side of the ditch and we turned the player on. Within minutes we had a pack of coyotes surrounding the section of timber we were in. They were all along the edge of the field and they all began howling at us. It was neat but very eerie. We sat there until after dark. Once it got dark from on the other side of the ditch (opposite from where the coyotes were sitting and howling at us) coyotes poured in on us. There were 12-14 of them and they came within feet of us. That was really eerie!

I heard that! The first time I heard them all go off like that, I was headed away from camp in the dark to go find the "bathroom" area. Yotes started going nuts pretty close and I turned around and went by the truck. I was NOT wandering off toward them.
