how do coyotes run?

Ok i have a question for you guys who run yotes with your hounds..how do they run when the dogs are on em?..i ask because the last two times i have bin to my favorite farm to hunt i end up on an hour or so long chase...I'm all most positive its not a deer cause ill cut them lose with deer in the field an the dogs will run right past them...but anyway when they are on these chases(i don't have a garmin) but is sounds like what they are running will be going flat out then stop..i can tell because my female runs with a squal mouth an when what ever it is stops switches over to a bay.. by then my male will have caught up with it an he will start to bay then all heck breaks lose an then the Chase is back on... the way it ends is me tryin to get ahead of the dogs an cut them off an tryin to call them off it usually takes two times of me doin that to be able to call them off ..so i would like to hear your guys thoughts on this...an also if it is a yote is it turning on the one dog an once the other catches up an puts sum more pressure on it is this why it would start to run again?

Re: how do coyotes run?

Most chases will go on for hours if you allow them. Most hounds aren't fast enough to catch a yote and most yotes don't stop and face off a dog, especially with no snow to slow them down and wear them out. Still, it could be a yote. Wait for a skiff of snow, take them to the same place early one morning and see if it happens again - then check for tracks.

If it is not leaving the county, it sounds like a bobcat treeing and jumping out to me.

Re: how do coyotes run?

My guess is a cat or maybe bear...i know bears will run hard...and they like to stop and play with the dogs and catch their breath and either beat up the dogs or go again...both will climb and bail the tree...


I had a walker dog burning a yote one nite...it was making a half mile or so circle..after 2 or 3 circles i knew what he was doing and what he was running...then i saw the yote...poor ole fat dog was a half mile behind lol...i went and got.him caught....that dog was goofy....some nites we'd cut him loose and he wouldnt go hunting...then i could smell the coyote...other nites he would run them (rare but he ran a few in his day)...funny part is he was attacked by yotes 3 times! Figure he would learned his lesson..one time was pretty bad..vet had to sew him back together...

How many dogs you running? 2 it sounds like?? Dont rule out a bear...when we ran in NC i thought the guy was nuts turning out 1 dog on a track and 2 on another...but the 2 dogs ended up treed under a sow and 2 cubs pretty quick..bayed or treed hard a few times...when we went into the last tree i watched the sow bail...and boy the chase was ON...we had another truck gather then up on the next road..

Re: how do coyotes run?

I really suggest you ask for a Garmin Astro System for X-Mas. They make a world of difference. I hunt with CasB and he can attest to it. We've had coyote circle in one area then pull out and circle in another miles away. Then you'll get others that don't circle at all but just make a bee line to God Knows Where.
Red fox can pull out of an area and run elsewhere as well. Greys typically run almost like a cottontail.
Back when I was younger my dad would always leave an old blanket out where we had our trucked parked. If the hounds pulled out and we couldn't locate them typically they would be laying on the blanket the next day.
Modern electronics have definitely changed that. Not to mention you can attempt to head off your hounds if they are running toward a well traveled roadway. No critter is worth losing a hound to getting hit by a car.
When a yote gets tired he will bayup. We've had chases that went for well over eight hours. I don't know if your hounds are fighters or not. Some dogs will fight others turn tail. Depends how many hounds you are running as well.
Snow will tell what's going on.
