Last winter found large scrapes 18in wide by 4ft long,big coyote track right in the middle just like a buck would do.Today found a scrape in same spot.Is this for mating or territory?Distress calls not working,thinking of howling to bring him in.
I've seen that before. It was in late December/January. It was on the east side of a big ridge that we figured divided coyote territories. My hunting buddy and I saw two different sets of coyote tracks on and near this scrape, one large, one smaller, two different urine marks in the snow and fresh poo within ten yards We never had any luck hunting there but it may be due to the fact that that mountain was on an extreme edge of a packs territory.
