Info on coyote

Recommended Posts

BS on 80 and 90 pound coyotes unless Wolc weighted them in with a yard stick. 
 
] The largest coyote on record was a male killed near Afton, Wyoming, on November 19, 1937, which measured 1.5 m (4 ft 11 in) from nose to tail, and weighed 34 kg (75 lb).[6]
 
 
 
How can it be that the largest recorded coyote was a western coyote?  And in 1937 to boot!!!

 
 
4'11" to tail, regardless of tail bone or tail tip, seems like that was one portly yote. I will gather those measurements on the next dog I touch.

Did you miss this link I posted from 2010?  Missouri would say your info is out dated.  Either that or not all yotes are entered in the records.

Zero credibility from you. 
 

“A previous case of mistaken identity happened in late 2010 with the shooting of what also appeared to be an unusually large coyote in Carroll County. DNA test results of the 104-pound canine linked the animal to timber wolves from Great Lakes states.”

The article comes directly from the Missouri Conservation Department and it says they did DNA tests.  Sounds pretty credible.  Where does your statement refuting that info come from?

It’s a cover up. Right?

I could have told you it was a Wolf by looking at it.

Yeah, he was a local in the area.  He used to frequent here as MrVJP.  Got fed up with the site.

because a lot of members were fed up with his constant political nonsense.

But he unlike some others had a lot to offer and share, so it was sad that it went in that direction

Congratulations whacker.  You win a cookie.

i'm still trying to figure out your angle. You want to get rid of yotes, I get that. Then you're going down a path of how big some are. Most of what has been sent your way is credible scientific data and most of what you send back has been refuted or is anecdotal.

And the guys you're discussing this with are all hunter and killers of yotes.

So what are your trying to convince us of here?

Coyotes are definitely way bigger in the East. I’ve hunted out west and Canada a bunch and the yotes there are much smaller. In Alberta on a wolf I hunt I passed up several yotes Everyday for a week and then near end of trip i shot one that was average size. It weighed 22lbs only!

Regarding google searches and Wikipedia, I wouldn’t take it very seriously. I believe at one point the internet said the largest bobcat in Minnesota recorded was 39lbs. However, I shot and weighed a 42lber. My point is that There are big species of game in many states in remote locations that never get publicity.

Going back to NY yotes, In my personal
Opinion a 40lber is a trophy. Anything over 50lbs is something very special and not common by any means.

My friend who hunts Montana , stays at a guys place who used to guide but now just lets you stay in his cabins for $50 a night ( and tells you where to hunt ). 

He was showing old pictures to my friend when he saw what looked like a long board fence , it was a wire fence with coyote pelts  on it ,as far as the eye could see .

His son made enough trapping them to buy a new pick up truck for cash, while  still in high school .
