I am knot entirely use to the tape recorder I am using and don't have protection against wind on my microphone so I did end up over saturating it with my first howl as I was too close and the wind made things worse but this is still much more then good enough to prove I am knot delusional when I talk about actually howling with coyotes.
I am also knot done my microphone setup as I does need a way to amplify and lower the sound going through it since the "Auto leveling" on my tape recorder doesn't prevent over saturation if it does anything at all. I has another one that I can control the record level on but need to find a way to clean rust off the head and would love if anyone knew any tips.
I went out to the woods earlier after discovering howl warm it was outside. It was just after 2:00AM when I left and it had rained a lot earlier in the day. It was very wet and mucky and I had to walk and ride my bike through tons of mud.
After I went through the woods, I recorded nothing and stawped for a hawt chocolate that I finished when I was back in the woods as they don't last anywhere near as long as a coffee. I still had my tape recorder going as I was on my way back and went up a hill I doesn't usually go up and wasn't planning on going up but I did hear something and knew it came from that direction.
Once I was at the tawp of the hill, I let out a loud howl. Seconds after, it was followed by a pack of feral coyotes howling and yelping in my direction. I immediately turned the microphone around and stepped back to howl back and forth with them.
After that, I went down the hill and stood at the river looking across where they came from. I now need to find a way across the river or into the woods on the other side of it where they stay.
After that, the howling was over and I went home with my recording of me and sexy coyotes howling.
