Agreed! I've seen them shot on one side of the fence and then drop stone dead 3 or 4 hundred yards on the other side I've only ever met one rancher who got mad at my story, he was a real piece of hell anyway and seemed to enjoy the coyote infestation he had on his property.

Re: Will a coyote jump a fence?

Im going to try calling them to the "safe" side of the fence Saturday morning.

As far as shooting threw the fence or onto there property, NO WAY, I was out there the other night and a helicopter buzzed us. I did not know helicopters could be so quiet. I swear it was in stealth mode. There is no problem hunting around the property but it is clearly posted every 100 yards on the fence.

Re: Will a coyote jump a fence?

Back when I lived in the midwest I ran coyote hounds. I have seen them clear a 48" woven wire fence with an easy jump. Of course this was with dogs after them. I had an 80 acre training pen with coyotes in it that I used to start my pups. The fence was 9' tall. To keep the coyotes in we had an electric wire at the base ( to keep them from digging out) and another hot wire 5' up the fence to keep them from climbing out. They will grab wire with their mouth and climb up. I once put one in a wire corn crib over night. In the morning he was clear at the top (16 to 20') and not coming down. That was a rodeo we should have videoed.

My point is if they want to come to that call they will. Especially if you have a couple young ones that get to racing to the call.

One other thing. You described hearing sveral yotes. Having had 30 at a time in the training pen we have spent lots of time with them. 2 or 3 yotes doing their yipping and howling ritual will sound like a dozen. It is amazing the serenade 3 yotes will put out.

My question is, they are all on military property and i do not have access to it. it is fenced off with that 4 inch square "chicken" wire fence that is about 4 feet tall. Will they jump the fence to come to my call?
Fences do not stop coyotes. If they want to see the other side of a fence they will go over, under, or through it.

I'd never heard of such, some day you should write those stories down.

Re: Will a coyote jump a fence?

Do not underestimate the ability of a coyote to get where he wants to go. Fun facr... They travel a six minute mile in that easy lope they use. But when calling near obstacles, natural or man made it pays to be patient. They do tend to "hang up" and can be challenging.
