Our last trip of the year we took the very end space at the camp ground. Everyone else was way up front by the bathrooms and showers. We like our privacy. It is along the river on one side and a huge wooded area on the other. Just my wife and I that night. No kids to make a bunch of noise. Didn't even have a radio on. Just nice piece and quiet. Around 10 pm my phone rings. (My ringer is a turkey call). You should have heard the coyotes start howling. One was within 50 yards of the camper. Wife said the hell with this im going to bed. I sat up a little while longer and listened to them

Don't let your dog out if your phone's going to ring!

What a wonderful concert! A turkey call, eh? What a setup!

The coyotes around our stix & brix start up many times when the trains go past 1/2 mile away. We keep the cats in and don't have a dog, so no worries, just music to my ears.

Cheers,
Sue

I was 'stealth camping' on a small pond once. Across the pond a guy pulled up in a van conversion. Once it got dark, he let his small dog out to 'do it's business'. A pack of coyotes began singing all around us. My first thought was, "Ah! Live bait!"
That little dog started barking. Those coyotes really got excited. The guy wisely took the pooch back inside.

I was sleeping one night at the Jenny Knob Shelter in VA along the AT. I was the only one there, A coyote yelped right next to the shelter. Scared the heck out of me. What was interesting was that, as the night progressed, I could hear the yelp getting fainter and fainter as it got farther away. Good thing that he didn't want me as a meal!

The longer I sat out and listened the more I heard. There were a few really far away like the one close to us was calling in his buddies.
