    Wolf and coyote reproductive rates are very different as well. It can take wolves a long time to recover population wise. I like having them in MN. I think our recent number are still at least...

    That's funny considering western coyotes are significantly smaller than the eastern type coyotes we have in much of minnesota. That's not to say there aren't plenty of armchair experts in MN that...
