Yeah on looking scrawny, D! Are you seeing any mange this year?
Speaking of this!!!
Did you know The state of Montana Introduced Mange in to the wild population as a means to kill all the wolf/coyotes in Yellowstone park in 1909?
https://missoulian.com/news/state-and-regional/study-looks-at-effect-of-mange-on-yellowstone-wolves/article_0583b768-0b1a-11e0-93e1-001cc4c03286.html

"
Sarcoptic mange was introduced to the Northern Rockies by state wildlife veterinarians in 1909 as a way to wipe out wolves and coyotes. The mites that cause the infection have been able to remain in the area by taking up residence on foxes and coyotes.


The mites burrow into the animal's skin causing infections that lead to irritation. As the animal repeatedly scratches its irritated skin, their fur falls out. Hair loss can range from patchy to about one-third or more of the animal's fur.


Cross is interested in how outbreaks of mange in wolves affect a pack's social dynamics, cohesion and a wolf's status, how many wolves survive infection and what are the caloric costs of losing much-needed insulating fur during the winter. Does the disease stay in the system, and at what level? He's also interested in whether the thermal imaging cameras can detect mange more quickly"

But answer to your question. NO.
 We have very little mange in my core coyote hunting area.
Once and a wail we see it bout not a lot.

Only about 2 weeks I feel well now and am planning 4 days of coyote calling starting Sunday, depending on the weather.
 I have heard it stays with you for like 3 years, un like Lyme disease the is always with you.

  :shock: Am sure glad you are on the mend, D! Good luck with your coyote busting, too!  O0
