We had two deer hanging around the camp. I seen them on Dec. 17th with about 21″ on the ground. I wondered why they were still hanging around.
Well the buck is gone Coyotes got him down by the lake. Probably this past Saturday. No snow on him and it snowed on Friday. Must have been several of them as it looks like he put up a fight. Blood and gore in a 20 ft square area right next to the trail going out on the ice.. He must have shed his horns cause I think he would have horned at least a couple of them. I cant figure out which way they chased him. Snow to deep to read the tracks. I found chunks of deer hair over by the old screen house where it looks like they chased him from and bit at him
The hind quarters, lungs, and liver were gone. I looked so I was thinking of saving some of the meat for you guys next season. Nice size buck.
Between the bears and coyotes its no wonder we cant find but a few deer here and there. From now on it WAR. You didlos better start pulling the trigger on these beasts. I hope the other one gets the hell out of there.
