Coyote Den

I found a coyote den yesterday. It was the first active den I have ever found and I found it interesting. Unfortunetly I happened to stumble across it while scouting for turkey hunting. I walked up a hill and saw a pile of fresh dirt, as soon as I saw the dirt I saw hair moving. A little pup came around the dirt mound and sat down and looked right at me followed by another pup. I couldn't believe how small the hole they were living in was. I don't think a full grown coyote would be able to fit in it. Anyhow I think I need to find a new turkey hunting spot. The pups like like a 8 week old puppy.

den

cool find, I have read studies where the average size to a coyote den entrance is 8 in hard to believe but I have never seen a den opening much larger than 12 in.. once you get the fur off the carcass you will see why they can get through small openings..
