I hear those "coywolves" pretty frequently in the early dawn here in NH too. And see their tracks in the snow in the woods sometimes. They seem a bit more solitary than the reputation of both coyotes and wolves suggest. I haven't ever seen tracks from a "pack."

Hmm, here when I hear them they are in a pack or family. They do have the ability to sound more numerous than they really are. Once I heard what sounded like up to twenty of them outside my window in the dead of night, but when I investigated, it turned out to be four of them making all of that wonder-filled sound.

I have seen lone animals, as I described in an earlier post, but that is rare, in my experience. You may be observing young males looking for a female to start a family with...

Could be! When I hear them, they do sound like groups, but as you say, how large is impossible to determine.
