What track is this, I've looked up wolf tracks and coyote tracks.. Most likely its a coyote, but it sure looks like the wolf track pics I have looked up.

And that is a quarter I used for comparison, it was the only thing I had that you might recognize

These 2 pics are the same, except for the quarter :)

And these were a short distance away, and a lot fresher

This 1st pic is before the next print picture, (on the run)

looks like Coyote to me Jeffro. We have quite a few around where I live and those tracks look similar to the ones I have seen here. Looks like there might be more than one animal, and one seems to have some girth. Around here we alos have Coyote dogs, don't know a technical term, but somewhere along the line there have been domestic dogs bred with these coyotes.

it cetainly looks like a track made by a dog type animal, due to the claws extending into the print

could be coyote

You're too far north for El Chupacabra so maybe Jersey Devil?

I believe its coyote, or like you said about the mixture of both dog and coyote, around here they call them coy-dogs, and actually I've been told to watch out for them, and the possibility of rabies..(that's just great)

@ n00b, Panda tracks you think, that could be bad too. :D

@ oggy, Thanks oggy, I'm sure you guys are right.

@ patella, I wish, I could be famous or "laughed at" :)

i'm gonna say its a coy-dog. the hybrids get MUCH larger than a standard coyote, and are much more aggressive. We have them so bad here in northern Indiana that they are not even afraid of humans, and have been known to attack people taking game out of the woods during hunting season. We have kill seasons several times a year just to take them down, as they are becoming a strong nuisance and even will venture into town at dusk.

they are dangerous unfortunately, but they don't like loud noises, so if they are becoming more prevalent where you drive your trucks, i'd recommend carrying an air horn or something to keep them at bay should you see them on the trail.

We have a season for shooting them and coyotes here in WNY. My neighboors kids actually got chased in their yard by two coy-dogs. So now my kids have to stay close to the house when they go out to play. They are way over polpulated here to.

yeah, they can be truly nasty. I've seen them take a 22 bullet and just get angry about it, when trying to steal rabbits from hunters. And they are some UGLY monsters as well.

coyotes are year round open season in IA, they are also the only things that are legal to shoot with a highpower, I shoot them for the neibor all the time cause they get into his chickens and have taken a couple of his calves, and those tracks are deffently 'yote and match the ones round here in size perty close

A coyote won't just attack a full grown man, they might if they are carrying game they just shot ot something but its pets and small children you have to be careful of. My kids all know to start yelling and screaming if they ever see one. They really do not like noise. My beagle was good to have around because she kept the *******s away. So we'll see how it goes this summer. If I kill one Joker I'll make ya a hat out of its hide!

I think I'm going to the Army Surplus store and pick up a used Bazooka and somehow attach it in the bed :D, except I don't think it can handle more then one recoil :D

here ya go Jeffro, the ''F350 ENFORCER armored gun truck" (its real and it'll certainly keep coyotes at bay, and any pesky illegal border crossers as well)...
