Re: Wolf, Coyote or Coywolf??
Thanks for the input guys. In this area like I said beforee, we have all three, wolves, Coyotes and Coy-wolves ( Which is a wolf with more Wolf genes than Coyote genes.) The wolves in this area are what are known to be the Eastern Red Wolf which was once thought to be extinct and has come back in a big way.
I was fortunate enough to have a met and now a friend, who is an area biologist with the Ministry of Natural Resources and he requested a meat sample from the one I shot a few weeks prior. He is getting DNA testing done on it and I will post the results when I get them. I was told this could take some time (up to 6 months) so please don't hold your breath.
Area farmers have complained about the number of Coyotes/Wolves in the area which have taken down their calfs, and sheep, and for this reason Wolf and Coyote hunting is open year round with no bag limit.
Your right JE Custom, they will hit deer hard during the time the fawns will fall. I took out a road kill deer to my site and the first night out, the area was covered in these dogs, and let me tell you, if they are Coyotes they are all 80 lbs + in this area!
Thanks for the input and welcome it from others as well.
