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.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!
