To big for Coyote. Wolf or dog

Postby droptine300 » Thu Sep 30, 2010 12:03 pm

I captured some pictures of what appears to be a couple dogs or wolves.  They seem to big for coyotes and I don't see the bushy tail.  This is buffalo county.  Not suppose to be wolves here.

put chills up your spine if the begin howling before daybreak and you're still in route to your stand.
One time I had a bobcat make a noise before daylight and I swear it sounded like a little baby crying. I didn't know what it was until a more experienced hunter said that bobcats can make some odd noises like that.

It's El Chupacabra [:o] Seriously though, the first pic does look like it could be a wolf.

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?

Do you think I can eliminate these being wolves?  Are these possibly some wild dogs?  I still think they are to big to coyotes unless is an optical allusion.

Weird thing.  I sat on this stand for the first time tonight.  First I had a doe and fawn come in.  The doe had no tail, maybe an inch long.  How does a doe loose it tail.  Shot off, born without one.

I also seen my first bobcat ever.  I've been hunting for 35 years.  It walked past the camera so I should have got a picture of it.  Next time I get the pictures hopefully I will have a picture to post.

good luck hunting to all.

Thanks,

I would say possibly a wolf...But then again you guys are a good portion south in WI.  But, not out of the question.  That second picture looks like a German Shepard almost.
