i'm not sure if this has been posted on tman or not or even if the guy who originally posted the pic is a tman member.


but there is a photo goin around on facebook of a fella posing with a coyote...and the caption says 185 pound coyote!! i'd post it here but don't wanna get in trouble for stealing someones pic.

could be a ton of scenerios as to how that even got started..original poster joking around maybe???....for those that havn't seen it............it's a pic of a fella , with a yote........except the coyote is close to the camera giving it the appearance of a big coyote.


the crazy thing is, some folks are believing it.........got into a lively discussion at work last night over it.........I tried telling this fella that it's just an optical illusion, coyotes/coywolf or whatever do not get to 185 pounds . that the biggest coyote I ever caught was prob in the 45-47 pound range, and he was a biggie. his reply,,,,,"well that's an Illinois coyote you caught,,,this one came from elsewere"....lol!!! I read somewere that the largest grey wolf on record was 175 pounds. guess if it's on the internet it has to be true.

Yep, I saw it. Definitely a fake. If you look at picture and background it is obvious. Also, if it was that big, he caught it in a #5 size trap. The story I saw, it was an Ohio yote. Also saw a pick of another Ohio coyote that was supposed to be 115#. It ABSOLUTELY was a photoshopped picture. Very obvious.

I can't even believe someone would ask if it's real. Does anyone really think there would be a yote that weighs in at 185 when there's never been one that weighed 100???? That ranks right up there with global warming. confused

I got the pic in an e-mail asking if it was true.

I think its 10000% real...just "camera trickery". And someone made up a weight and it went around the net...


Same tricks can be done with bucks..fish..etc..people that are good can make a 100" buck look huge...

It is easy to set a photo like that up. Position the trapper and the beast (or the fisherman and the fish), adjust the depth of field so that everything is in focus, and voila! You can invent a 30 lb crappie, a 12 pound chipmunk or a 185 pound coyote!

That, coupled with clever wording and a gullible public, is exactly how "internet grizzly bears" come to weigh 2,000 lbs by the time their photos go around the world a time or two!

The Internet is great for record stomping stories near every week! Just got the email bout the new world record Grizzly!

But I think the Ohio FB post was just a typo- it was meant to say 18.5 pound

You guys are looking at it wrong . because of the lack of trapping coyotes have grown larger then wolves and in that case will eat children fire fighters first responders and school teachers . We will also need bigger ar 15 to handle them .so all dumb trapping laws need to be abolished by executive orders .

It was posted on Facebook and the guy in the pic said a buddy or something had sent it out as a joke, and it went wild.

I don't even think the optical illusion of the picture makes it look that big
