    Coyote carnage?

    Made a campfire outside last night for a late night bourbon and cigar with the neighbor men to celebrate one of them turning 50... Around 1am, the coyotes started carrying on hysterically - sounded like about 4-6 of them. Fairly close - between my woodpile and a stand I need to check today about 300 yards in... All I could envision was they had a deer surrounded and were about to start ripping it apart. After about a minute, they went silent.

    Do they bark and howl when they hunt? Is it a victory ritual for them after a kill? Or were they just letting us know "we're here" ?

    Gonna go check that stand and look around for white hair everwhere...

    Surveillance says - no deer were harmed, it was just an audio fright show. No hair, bones, crows or buzzards to be found.

    Jack, they seem to do that same ritual around my house late at night, I never seem to find much evidence the next day after the carnage is over, just some clumps of hair. But I'm gonna get them bastards one night. Sometimes it sounds like a bunch of little girls laughing and giggling while there shaving each other's backs around a Bon fire!

    They howl and yeap to group up before going on a hunt. They also howl to locate one another when they are prowling around looking for dinner

    They howl and bark to let other coyotes know where they are or as a warning to stay away.

    It does not mean they have a kill. On the contrary they are actually very quiet when they have a kill.
    Whenever I'm hunting them I don't worry about the ones I can hear. It's the ones that are dead silent that come in almost 99% of the time.

    the more I think about it, my dog started barking at me as I walked toward the house, and immediately that triggered the howl fest.

    Of course it could be they sensed a wounded animal when the birthday boy discovered that a flimsy folding chair and too much Eagle Rare bourbon can create a hazardous situation. Still laughing about this. The picture doesn't do it justice. Man down! Name:  image.jpg
