    The first pic gives it away as a coyote. Buh-Dee!

    Dude, that last one is a giant! After seeing the wolf pics from the same spot, the first is definately a coyote.

    I'll admit when I'm wrong I guess. But the head and tail in that second pic look wolfish to me??

    It does, but the head in the first pic screams coyote.

    For the record, I'll never admit when I'm wrong. :D

    I don't have a lot of experience with wolves obviously... but as a predator trapper I'd definitely say those first couple shots are yotes. :)

    So assuming that is a yote, which it probably is, then on that one camera I had red fox, grey fox, coyote, bobcat, wolf, bear and deer. Also had the 130's 8 pointer that i passed up last week. Trail camera's are pretty cool !!

    That's interesting. Definitely think it's a coyote. The second picture looks a little like a wolf in the head, but like a few have said, that first pic gives it away. Those wolf pictures are cool, though.
