Not unless your coyotes are WAY ahead of schedule. Usually they start about the middle of next month, into early March!

Jake, they will howl this time of year. Coyotes won't always respond verbally to howls, any time of year. Often, they will come to the call quietly, including howls!
I doubt that they are breeding yet. They may be pairing up, but not breeding!

Had a pair hang up and howl at me over the weekend.

They stayed at 667 yards and one even laid down.

I dont know if they were a mating pair or not, and a third came in from a different direction.

There is a fairly new sound that has been documented that has been called a Female estrous chirp. The sound is made when a male is courting a female, wanting to breed but she isn't ready so to speak. The Predator or Prey/Verminator video has a clip of this in action. The estrous chirp is several mono toned yips with a pause, then several more yips several times over. There is also a howl known as the Female Invitation howl, and this is a higher pitched lone howl that is cut off, in other words, unlike a lone howl, the invitation howl cuts off instead of gradually descending in tone!
Both howlssounds seem to work especially well come mating season. Probably for two reasons: 1) most callers use distress calls all winter and not as much howling, 2) most callers start using more howling during mating season and this is when the coyotes will respond the best to vocals because of territorial instincts and breeding instincts.
Your basic howler that is capable of high picthed howls will work just fine in reproducing these sounds!
