By far the darkest and longest coat I've ever seen on a coyote.

That's a cool looking one for sure. I had one with a black tip on its tail. Plus a deer leg in its mouth.

I've never seen a yote as dark as that. Wolves on the other hand, yes. I think his long hair stands out because of his dark features. Very cool non the less. He'd make a cool body mount..

Beautiful coat on him. He looks a little too healthy. Any plans to take him out?

He might not be a coyote.

I shot one with quite a bit of black in it...not that much but still a good bit....I saw one that was totally black too but didn't shoot it because the coat was all jacked.

There's a black one at one of my farms that's been giving me the slip for a few years now. Hoping he comes into my calls in january and I can send some lead his way ;)

Could that possibly be a red wolf?
