The Coyote Facts
- Average adult coyote is 35 pounds, but can exceed 50 pounds.
- Coyotes are mostly grayish-brown to reddish-tan; nearly all black is not uncommon.
- Coyotes reproduce in late winter, have a 63 day gestation period, and produce 5-7 pups per litter.
- As evidenced in other states with long established coyote populations, expanding coyote populations are likely to impact local deer and small game. However, overtime coyote populations are expected to stabilize allowing deer, turkey and small game to still exist in healthy numbers in South Carolina.
