Photos are tiny, even on my 17" monitor. I put it in Photoshop and blew it up, too grainy.

Big old male wolf.

I would lean more on the side of a wolf

Well the man with coyote in his name says it’s a mosquito, that’s what it is! I’d immediately say wolf, but you’re in Montana… I’ve never seen how big your yotes get.

Pics are tough.

When you see a wolf in person...there is no doubt.

Some of you guys might remember Hee Haw and ole Stringbean. Well, he was telling a story about his days in the war where the bullets were flying so thick that he ran and jumped in the "wolf hole". They said, String, you mean the fox hole, right? He said, well a fox might have dug it, but there was a wolf in it when he got there. :)

If that's a coyote that's one big as dog. I'd have to say wolf, those long legs and the head.

If you set a trap. shorten the chain to about three links unless you put it on a drag. They will lunge out of the trap with a long chain if it isn't on a drag.

Ahh spypoints...Based on the length of the legs in the first pic I would lean towards wolf. I assume the snow is gone or crusted so tracks are out of the question?

Hard to tell . 1st pic looks wolf from what I can see 2nd looks coyote. Because it looking more like a yote in one pic, and just the sheer chances of coyote/wolf and because when you see a wolf it's usually a no question you know it kind of deal if I'm a betting man I'd go with coyote.

U can tell by the tail wolf has a dog tail coyote has nic round fluffy tail in these parts anyways. Coyote

01-Mar-22
Looked at other wolf pics some have pretty fluffy tails also, the ones here have the curl tail like a dog when mobile dont seem to be that fluffy still trying to kill one lol. Might be wolf

Long legs, so could be a wolf. He tucks his tail like a coyote. Wolves carry their tails straight back when running, and this guy is just standing. Hard to tell. If the nose and snout showed in a bigger picture that would help. Coyotes have a pointed snout, a small nose pad, and larger ears than a wolf. Either way, lock the chicken coop and bring in the dog for the night.
