Re: Reno Coyote
It depends on the time of year to some extent. Winter and spring (mating and denning seasons) are the most intense as far as territoritality goes but, yes, coyotes have some pretty distinct boundaries at times. I've had them come in until they got to a fence and then they acted as if it were a hot wire. They stopped and wouldn't come any further. I've seen them refuse to leave a large (hundreds of acres) pasture. The fences again acted as a boundary. If you can get inside the territory they claim and defend, you can usually get a good response whether they are hungry or not. I called and shot a large coyote in one of the pastures behind my house that had a whole jackrabbit in his stomach. He was not coming to the call because he was hungry. So, the boundaries can work for you or against you.
