    Unfortunatly I did not weigh them, the second one is actually the bigger of the two just not easy to tell in the pictures. Both these coyotes were bigger than my friends pet husky.

    Very nice! they have either been eating real good or were smart for awhile till you guys came along in order to be this big. Great shooting!

    There's a coyote problem where I hunt, I don't know what they are eating but when that second one was shot there were 8 other coyotes with it, we only managed to get two of them.

    I've noticed most of the dogs I have seen this year are bigger than normal. Anyone else notice their yotes being bigger this year???

    I've saw more coyotes and bigger coyotes this year than ever before, I wonder why?

    It would seem to me that they are eating more not neccesarily at each setting but possibly more settings, meaning their food source has been available longer-ie any noticeable shortness to last winter or milder last winter? or is it possible there's been less harvesting in recent years? Not my specialty so just speculating.

    I don't think many people shoot them and I think they are eating a lot though, the deer population seems to be lower a bit this year
