    They're traveling in pairs up here right now. They love to be out on the ice in the wide open, even during the day, for some reason. I've seen several pairs.

    And that's all I can help you with. I'm sure they would respond to a howler, but I'll defer to someone a lot more knowledgeable than I, and that would be a lot of people.

    February is the breeding season...I've never read anything more specific that would suggest early February or late February. But, February is the month.

    One thing I've learned over the years of hunting and trapping predators is not to assume there is only one reason for how animals are behaving at a certain time of year.

    last 2 weeks of february is the peak breeding season. Hunt the 4 days prior and preceeding the new moon at this time of year. dont be scared to use a dominant yote howl.
