Me and the kid part 2: skunked again
« on: December 29, 2016, 08:49:05 AM »
Was back at it.  Hit 5 stands.  Hunted low and then went high into snow line.  Nothin!  But had a great time with my son.  This winter has been really tough for us to find coyotes.  Have been out 3 times calling hard, calling soft, long, short, everything.  It's been difficult over here in the OP for yotes. Looking for a nice coat to skin/mount

Anyway, here are some pics of the hunt.  Beautiful country.  We even had to Chain up" to reach some of our spots.

You'll see a BIG track; it doesn't look like a cougar to me, and it was huge.  Maybe a bear?  I should have put something in the pic as a reference.  I'd say it was about 8-9 inches from tip to base.

Sounds like a good day.  It looks like two dog prints to me, one over the other.

Not a bear.

the more I look at it the more it kind of looks like a cougar track too...not sure.

Looks to have claws at tips of toes. My vote is dog of some sort. Love hunting yotes in the snow. Gotta get out soon.
My prey is my biggest enemy. That's why my first shot is lethal.

4 toes tells us it's either a dog or a cat.  Doesn't look round enough for a cat track.

Probably a wolf track.....
