Barking ' yote

3 posts in this topic

Ever get barked at by a yote? My buddy and I were set up in a pretty good stand and had the fox pro playing away for about an hour one evening and didn't have any luck. We stuck it out until dark but had to leave to finish up the weekends honey-do list. We started walking across the field away from the edge of the woods and and one mad 'yote started barking from about 300 yards away, down in the safety of the woods of course. We kind of looked at each other with amazement as three different packs started howling and carrying on. We figured (probably wrong) that they had been moving in on us and when we got up and started walking away the one dog saw us and started barking. It was almost spooky to have that many dogs that close but we couldn't see them. It was a nice confidence boost to know they are there, now we just have to figure out the trick to get them to expose themselves. I am not sure who was being hunted that night!

Yes I have been barked at, and I have chalked it up to they saw me move or smelled me. were you only distress calling? Right now is mating season so maybe a challenge howl or interogation howl could help seal the deal instead of straight distress. We were out two weekends ago (yep the cold one) and had two sit down at 400 yds. they either saw us move or wanted to see the hurting rabbit. I did one interogation howl and in hindsight, I think that is what brought the pair in.

Its was more than likely a "warning bark" I hate to throw that out without hearing it. I am guess he caught you moving and he was warning other coyotes. They are very tough to call in once they let the warning bark fly.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
