  • On the hunt. The coyote is the most vocal wild mammal in North America with 11 vocalizations. They see very well at night. They have top notch smelling ability and their hearing is impeccable. Coyotes can hear up to a quarter mile away. The shape of their ears is meant to capture even the smallest of movement. During the wintertime, a coyote can hear a mouse moving beneath 7 inches of snow! A group of coyotes is called a band so that just makes them super cool. Near Hauser.
