Coyote leftovers - Pic

6 posts in this topic

Buddy made what we thought was a good hit on a small doe on Saturday night. After looking for blood and accidentally pushing her, we backed off until morning.

Here is what was left.

While you can't see the other side, both backstraps, hams, and front shoulders were completely eaten out, along with most of the guts. Surprisingly, they left part of the lungs and the heart. Even rib meat was chewed out.

Would probably do the same thing again given the choice, but it was frustrating!

Couple that with the fact that I found out the hard way I have a hanging firing pin, and we went 0-fer this weekend on does! It's been a good season, but I'd like another doe for the freezer.

Never seen the result of that situation before. Thanks for sharing. Yotes are terrible these days. Wish I could shoot some.

Nature always makes use of itself though.

BTW, nice buck you took earlier this year!

In our area we need to follow-up immediatly on our deer or our result is normally the same as the photo.

Coyotes, if given the chance, will gorge themselves till they puke and then, they may eat some more.
