I've been fishing the DPR for 8 years seen a few yotes, wounded deer, bucketheads and bums. I had to call the police a few times on some gangbangers smoking under the bridge. Don't let yotes scare yea.

It`s probably close to thier breeding season and if ur too close to the den they may attack.
Be carefull in the spooky woods :)

Yotes will attack anything if you make an attempt at them.Don't test them because when there's 3 or 4 on one your idea will change fast.

Nice Mike! There are Coyotes that are in the Park Ridge forest preserves. When I was a kid I used to see packs of them really early in the morning. They looked really scrappy though and were way more scared of me than I was of them.
