What is your biggest coyote

Postby peanut8474 » Sun Jan 01, 2012 9:44 pm

Ive only hunted southern illinois coyotes and everything ive read is eastern and northeastern coyotes are bigger than western coyotes and curious if anyone has ever weighed them . I once killed one that was 58 pounds , but that was far bigger than anyone I had ever killed and the next closest was 48 , but some of the pictures I see on here , the coyotes look pretty darn big, but the pelts on our coyotes arent thick like I see in alot of these pics so the size may be decieving

These two big coyotes that I killed were bigger than all the others i had killed and the pelts were much more colorful and fluffy and Ive killed around 400 and I thought they had strange characteristics and thought they may be coydogs as big as they were but I dont know.I killed them a year apart but with in a half mile of where I had killed the big one.

I will find a pic of the 48 pounder. My buddy decided to get it mounted and I dont have a pic of the 58 pounder and my dad was getting it mounted for me , but he passed away a few months later and didnt know what taxidermist he took it to, so it was lost

I found the pics and have them on my phone and going to send them to my email, but Im not quite sure what to do to get them on here. This coyote is very orange and has a strange muzzle. It may be a coydog. Ive research them but its hard to find verified pictured of coydogs

i use photobucket to drop pictures on a post. It's easy, just register and add pics to photobucket and use the image code and post the link to the page.

EOcaller - that coyote looks like he gorged himself at a bait pile LOL. The biggest coyote i have ever seen on a scale was one that tory and todd heid shot at the beulah tournament a few years ago. It was around 42 if i remember correctly. The biggest i have ever shot myself was 38. Nothing huge, but yet a good size coyote.
