There was a pic of a yote next to a 1.5yr old buck and the yote was almost as big. Somebody said while they are rare, yotes can get pretty darn big. Here is a google search.

"Coyotes typically grow to 30–34 in (76–86 cm) in length, not counting a tail of 12–16 in (30–41 cm), stand about 23–26 in (58–66 cm) at the shoulder and, on average, weigh from 15–46 lb (6.8–21 kg).[3][12] Northern coyotes are typically larger than southern subspecies, with the largest coyotes on record weighing 74.75 pounds (33.91 kg) and measuring 1.75 m (5.7 ft) in total length.[13][14]"

My buddy shot a 60 pound Coyote, most of the dogs I've shot are around 35 lbs though...

I've come across plenty of wolves in my day, you never have to ask yourself if you just saw a wolf because you instantly know when you see them. Even the little ones are pretty big and the big ones make you a little nervous.

Here is a fun pic I found.

Nice pictures. , that wolf looks almost exactly like the one I seen 2 years ago around home. They sure have a different way of moving, it,s definitely their own.

We have quite a few wolves on camera and a ton of yotes. This is in Rusk county. Here are a few pics. One is a good size black bear standing in the same spot as a young wolf. That bear is one of the biggest we have on camera and I also have some smaller ones in the same spot. Guesses were in the 300# range.

If I remember correctly the wolf next to the buck was photoshopped.

Now that I look at it it does look fake.
