Impressive Coyote Picture

I can't say I am overly excited to see coyotes running all over the property. However, I am impressed with the quality of this photograph. This is by far the best “yote” photo that the cameras have managed to capture to date. It looks like a strange smell on the breeze may be catching its attention. Also note the time the photo was taken and the temperature.


  1. That is a good shot. I got mixed feeling about getting coyotes shots also.

  2. Great looking dog. What camera do you have?

    Thanks for sharing

  3. Joe,

    At least the photograph encourages me to pick-up the rifle and brave the frosty elements!

    Thanks for commenting,


  4. PitO,

    It is one of the older Moultire's. I have two currently, one of their IR units and a flash unit. The IR is really necessary for coyotes as the flash scares them at night.

    I think Cabelas is currently running an after Christmas sale on them!

  5. That is a nice pic. Coyotes are thick in my area, I might try setting up a camera close to my chicken coop. Maybe the flash will discourage them.
    Thanks for the info!

  6. I have had Moultrie game cam out for a few weeks now... not a single picture on it... I mean, besides me looking to see if its on.

    Great shot! Clarity is amazing.

  7. CG,

    LOL, Interesting use of a game camera. If the flash doesn't work, I find that the .243 is very useful in relocating them to heaven.

  8. Leigh,

    To get the camera to capture game photos is really a matter of setting the camera in pinch points. In other words areas where the animals are forced to walk between your camera and some object. A game trail running along the edge of a pond or beside a high ridge are some of my favorite spots. In areas where the path is to wide, I will even cut and pile brush to funnel the animals in front of the camera.Hope this helps!
