Female Coyote (Canis latrans) Scent Marking Female Coyotes come into estrus once a year, usually in late winter. During the 2-3 months prior to estrus, males and females increasingly leave scent markings. The female&rsquo;s urine is often tinged with blood, which is seen in this photo.  60% to 90% of females breed each year, depending on their physical condition and the abundance of food. <br />
