Last season, I caught a glimpse from the stand of what i thought at first was just a coyote roaming around but as it got closer i could tell that this was much larger than any coyote i had ever seen before and had what seemed to be a reddish tint to its coat. Unsure of what exactly it was i didn't take a shot at him but I haven't been able to stop thinking about him since. I did some research and learned that before red wolves pretty much disappeared from Texas there were reports of them breeding with coyotes and some hybrids have been spotted around. I just went up this past weekend to check the camera and much to my surprise I had 2 separate visits from this shy little guy in the pics. Can anyone tell me what I may be dealing with here? Or am i looking at just a regular coyote? Thanks.

I'd say you are dealing with a buddy who got ahold of your camera and changed the location out for you! roflmao

Tough to tell without a good pic of the head but most likely just a coyote. It's been so long since there were wolves in Texas that their offspring are certainly dead by now.

The color of the coat doesn't mean much. Coyotes come in all colors and not all red wolves are red.

Everybody thinks it's a coyote, but sometimes you have to wonder. I've shot a truckload of coyotes that all weighed around 20 to 30 pounds, but one fall day I shot one that was 50 pounds. Why was he so much bigger than any coyote I shot before or since? Danged if I know, but I have always assumed he was a blend of some kind.

How about a 1/2 Red Heeler 1/2 Grey Wolf.

I saw some TV show where they tagged a coyote and followed it and proved that some were interbeeding with wolves. Hard to tell about the one in the photo.
