That would throw an interesting twist to the day of ice fishing.
Ice fishing is a bridge that gets many outdoorsmen through the winter. A slower outdoor activity compared to summer fishing, but it get you out there nonetheless. Getting out there is what leads to the opportunity to see some cool things.
Wolves are the largest members of the canid family, with adult males weighing up to 145 pounds and measuring up to six feet in length. Adult females are slightly smaller, weighing up to 100 pounds and measuring up to five feet in length.
Coyotes are smaller than wolves, with adult males weighing up to 50 pounds and measuring up to four feet in length. Coyotes have a lean, agile build and are known for their cunning and adaptability.
While wolves and coyotes are both members of the canid family, they have distinct differences in their behavior and interactions with each other. Wolves are social animals that live in packs, which can include up to a dozen individuals. They communicate with each other through a variety of vocalizations, including howling, growling, and barking. Wolves are apex predators that prey on a variety of animals, including elk, deer, moose, bison, and smaller mammals like rabbits and rodents.
Coyotes, on the other hand, are opportunistic predators that will hunt and scavenge a variety of animals, including small mammals, birds, reptiles, and insects. They are also known to feed on fruits and vegetation. Coyotes are adaptable animals that can thrive in a variety of environments, from deserts to forests to urban areas.
In terms of interactions between wolves and coyotes, the two animals are known to compete for resources like food and territory. Wolves are known to kill coyotes, and coyotes will avoid areas where wolves are present.
This man was out for a day on the hard water when he witnessed something spectacular. He looked up to see a coyote in a full sprint with a wolf going after it right on its tail.
The pair are seen running right by him and out into the middle of the lake.
The way the wolf is moving it seem like he will quickly catch the coyote.
Even members of the same family don’t get along out there.
Nature is wild.
