Wildlife photography has become an increasingly popular hobby over the last 10 years. Coyotes (Canis latrans) are among the more difficult animals to photograph under natural field conditions (i.e., in the "wild"). For studying and photographing coyotes behaving routinely, I recommend the use of a "draw station" (i.e., cow carcass) and a blind that will all low relatively close inspection of coyote interactions.
