    Caught this guy on my camera about a month ago. I live and central Wisconsin and there are definitely wolves in the area and I've seen tracks but never had one on camera. I'm leaning more towards a wolf because of the broad face and rounded ears. What do you think? [​IMG]

    Not totally sure but it seems bigger than most yotes I see. I've only seen pictures of wolves and with the darkness and distance I'm not really sure. Stance is tall. If I have to choose, I'll say wolf but that's an inexperienced guess.

    I'm going to go with wolf the legs and chest look a little beefier than a yote.
    Hard to tell though do you have pics from the cam of other animals you could post for a size reference?

    Here is a pic of a buck from the same camera at about the same spot. Also here is a pic from another camera that is clearly a coyote.[​IMG][​IMG]

    My first instinct is wolf, but I'm only 75% sure.

    I'd guess wolf just by the look of the head. But not sure, looking just at the body I would say yote.
