Coyote tracks show toe nails almost all the time. The pad is only 25-30% of the total track and note how the
toes are large in comparison to the pad with a round appearance. This coyote is a mature female of about 25 pounds.
Coyotes can and do live just about everywhere. Callable coyotes live in areas seldom traveled by humans. I love
this time of year, me and the ranchers have the wide open spaces all to ourselves. Look for coyote scat along dirt roads along
with tracks. Tell tale signs of heavy coyote population will be piles of crap with juniper berries or just little cigars marking
their territory. I choose semi-open areas giving me visibility and them cover. It's always a race to see if I can plug them
before they smell me.
