I might be wrong but I'll stick my neck out and say the biggest we had in Wyoming was 34lb, a bull x found it in a storm drain and it had her speaking ! 

I missed it all but I was kept entertained on the coyotes 

That's a big coon. What did you hunt the coyotes with? I'm sure it wasn't with a patterdale. We have coyote and Coy dog's. The Coy dog's are bigger and bold. I would think by what you guys say about your fox killing live stock the coyote is a nuisance animal like that also. The wife and I heard the yotes one night yelling back and forth to each other then a couple minutes latter you heard a dog screaming for about a min or 2 then we heard the yotes getting farther away. They come into neighborhood's at night and snag dog's up and carry them away.

Would love a go on them myself if it was legal still .... Should imagine they are some test for a terrier swami? 

There is some other states where it's legal if I can get through the bureaucracy.Otters are more suited for second season dogs than first.Some terriers will never find a second otter as they will refuse.Some terriers will show good and quit 2 digs after otter on a small coon.Some terriers go in and shit theirselves and come out looking like they seen a ghost with barely a scratch on them.

One of the most things to think about is where the terrier is working the otter. A lot of times it can be in bad spots, where a dog can get drowned. 9 times out of 10 the otter wants to bolt, very rare they want to stay in with a terrier. The men I know that hunted them when it was legal said their terriers just worked them like anything else. As said the places they hold up in can be dodgy for the terriers. This is info from the old days, preban.

The river bottoms I hunt are public hunting land.Its mostly used by duck hunters and coonhound men.Its hard to get private land permission as rich men pay big money to deer hunt.Our rivers are controlled by dams.They lower the river level 5 feet in winter so most sets are surrounded by mud.But the river is always close by.With a $20 hunting license I have access to over a 1000 miles of river bank.When the river is low I can use Google Earth to find good spots.

The lines across the mud are beaver troughs which will lead you to a good set with some kind of quarry.The problem is it could be beaver coon otter possum mink or muskrat.I have bolted 10 beaver 2 muskrat and 2 otter from 1 set.Hope this helps give y'all a grasp of what I do .
