Default 'Yote eye color @ night

Let me preface this by saying that I have seen a pair of coyotes less than 50 feet from my back door in the last couple of months.....sometimes daytime...sometimes midle of the night.

SO, when I let my dog out to do her bidness at night I go out with her with my little 1M candlepower flashlight.

Question......what color would a coyote's eyes be if he was looking at me when the light shines on him?

On a couple of occasions I have had a pair of yellow eyes staring back at me from the woods at about as far as the flashlight shines.

The only red fox I've taken at night had a yellow / green reflection in the eyes. This was Approx 60yds with a 1Mil red lens spot.

Thats where he fell

Yellow,but most likely you'll be looking at the other end when the white flashlight hits him.

I think it depends on the angle the light enters the eyes. I've seen yellow, orange, and green, all from coyotes.

yellow


green


yellow/green?

Why does it matter? You should not be confirming your target by eye color.
