Bark like a yote
The simple coyote bark is a non-threatening sound that is both friendly and inviting. To produce this sound place your mouth about halfway up the reed on a call such as the Knight & Hale Mega Howler for an average sounding bark. Then, apply some pressure and give a quick puff of air by quickly tightening your abdomen muscle while saying “what.”
By barking farther up the reed you will get a deeper bark and by going closer to the tip of the call you will get a higher pitch. With a little practice you will quickly learn where the sweet spot on your predator call is for your style of coyote calling to make the best sounding barks.
The aggressive bark is a sound that lets other coyotes know that there is something that is upsetting them that they don’t like. It says: “You’d better leave or I’m coming over there to get you out of my territory.”
A bark coyote call also can be a warning sound to other coyotes that there is something of danger in the area. To produce the coyote sound you make the simple bark, but it’s a shorter sound and with an air of authority. There also is less space between the barks and more of them.
Now on to the friendly howl. Again as with the friendly bark, this is a sound that is non-aggressive and inviting. It’s saying, “let’s get together” or “let’s just do some commutating.” To make a friendly howl place your lips at least half way up the reed then start out with a quick puff of air.
Keep blowing for a few seconds then let the sound taper off all the way to the end. A friendly howl starts out gradually then gets higher in the middle. Then hold that sound for a few seconds let it taper all the way off to the end. Nothing sharp or quick about it just a nice long lonely sound.
