Okay I did a little homework. I noticed the old deer rub directly behind the animal. So today I went out and retrieved my pictures from this spot. I also took a tape measure with me. I measure to the bottom of where the buck rub started. It measured 22". I then measured 3/4 of the way up the buck rub and got 34".
I looked online at the heights of coyotes and wolfs. Coyotes measure 22" -24" at the shoulder. Wolves measure 32" -34" at the shoulder.
I'm in buffalo County WI so somewhat of a wilderness area. We have wolf reports going on in Buffalo County but according to our DNR we don't have wolves in Buffalo.
I'm not saying this is a wolf because the tail looks thin, but this may be an optical allusion. But one thing is for sure this is no coyote.
I have include a picture of a deer so you can see where is comes to on the buck rub.
So I'm not sure what to think?
