So while muzzle loader hunting this past weekend my brother and I kick up a pair of good sized coyotes. One was a nice and fluffy regular looking yote, and the other was a very large dark phase coyote. I have never seen any this dark. I know it was a yote because it had all the characteristics and markings of a coyote just a almost black/brown fur color to it. I took a shot and missed, I would have mounted it. I was just wondering if anyone has seen one of these are how common are they?
