Coyotes are just like any other animal in the wild, they have their won language and they communicate with each other. The better you understand their language and what the different vicalizations they make may mean the better your success rate will be in harvesting them.Coyotes are just like any other animal in the wild, they have their won language and they communicate with each other.

The calls a coyote makes are high-pitched and variously described as howls, yips, yelps, and barks. These calls may be a long rising and falling note (a howl) or a series of short notes (yips). These calls are most often heard at dusk or night, but may sometimes be heard in the day, even in the middle of the day.
Although these calls are made throughout the year, they are most common during the spring mating season and in the fall when the pups leave their families to establish new territories. When a coyote calls its pack together, it howls at one high note. When the pack is together, it howls higher and higher, and then it will yip and yelp and also do a yi-yi sound, very shrill, with the howl.
To understand the basics of coyote vocalization, first we have to break down the different barks and howls and how to make these sounds on a coyote call. Then we can put the different types of barks and howls back together to make the sounds we need to bring Mr. Coyote into gun range.
Most predator calls on the market that are designed to imitate the sound of the coyote are open reed designs. Closed reed designs on the other hand are good for producing those aggressive female sounds, and also makes prey-in-distress sounds. So let’s just dig right into making sounds using these coyote calls and get started with the simple bark.
