Black Coyote

I got this picture of a black coyote on my trail camera. Anybody else ever seen one?

A friend of mine killed a black coyote a while back in VA.

There was one that I would see on a regular basis living about 5 miles from here. No hunting in the area, though. Too close to houses.

They have one mounted on display at the Clemson, SC DNR Office. It's a beautiful animal, and a very nicely done mount. Would love to see one in the woods. Might end up MY mount.

I normally let coyotes I kill rot in the woods. Don't like touching them at all. Hides are only worth about $20.00. I wouldn't skin one if you paid me twice that.
But, that one, might just end up skinned and mounted.

I live about 20 mi. from Clemson and I see them on a regular basis. Maybe they're more common here than in other places. I've killed one myself and I've heard other people talk about them too so I know they aren't rare.

Nice! I have seen other game cam pics but never in person!
That would make a nice trophy!
Good luck!

I've seen a couple down between Cuauhtemoc and Guachochi, MX. But I only recall seeing one up here somewhere around the Neb/Ks line. Kinda cool lookin critters with their winter coats- for being biodegradable pop-up targets.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.
