For a few years I never thought about weighing or even keeping up with numbers but then I started weighing all the bigger ones and taking pictures of almost all of them. Each time I thought I had a possible 50 pounder I have been disappointed. Killed a bunch in the mid 40 pound but have not gotten the 50 mark yet.
Here are 4 killed in about 20 minutes that all went over 40lbs.
Having killed and been in on killing hundreds of coyotes I do remember one I called and a friend shot that might have weighed 50 lbs but we never thought to weigh it. Always wished we would have taken the time that day to carry it home and weigh it.
