Im in the Mojave desert. I assume North Cali dogs are bigger?

A good friend of mine that was a ADC Goverment Trapper in this area for many years said the heaviest coyote he weighed from this area was 38 lbs.

While I've weighed a fair number of coyotes on "accurate" scales, not spring loaded stuff, the smallest coyotes and the one largest coyote I killed was not weighed. But after hefting & weighing enough of them, one can often times come semi close at guessing their weight by picking them up. With that in mind, I'm gonna say the lightest were in the 10-15 lb range, and the one heaviest in the 40(+/-) lb range. Several were (weighed) in the low 30 lb range.
So mine pretty much agrees with dabob 's above... p.s. our largest dogs came from the more coastal & eastern high sierra's
