    Thats proof that coyotes don't eat only dead , old, or sick deer. I've seen the results many times since we got coyotes down here in the late 70's. It made me stock up on traps, and catch a bunch of them. Thanks for sharing that John C. ;)
     
  5. That was incredible, I had a three legged deer last year on camera, same thing happened to him but off camera by 75 yard, I saw the buzzards and went to investigate, I knew when I saw him on camera earlier in the week the coyotes would get him.

    That is why I kill every one of those bastards any time I see them. Talk about taking a stud of a deer off the hit list. Too bad he didn't find it soon enough to salvage the rack.

    Suppose they are smart enough to know that a velvet buck is less likely to use his antlers, or even reluctant to.

    I don't think the deer was healthy. He appears to be in the final stages of EHD. Notice his swollen tongue and the braking down of capillaries (not the bites) near thinned hair areas. They finally get where they stand around in one spot, oblivious to their surroundings. The coyotes were just waiting around taking cheap shots when the deer layed down.

    I have seen these pix before, and I thought they said the deer was wounded to begin with. But ya coyotes can take down a healthy deer in snow that's for sure, and they definately kill fawns
     
  16. I agree. Our local hunting site already posted this. I am still perplexed how everyone thinks coyotes can kill off huge numbers/herds of deer without effort. It was evident the deer was sick or injured, thus nature took it's course and death was knocking on this deer's doorstep.
     
  17. EHD in Oklahoma? Suppose those pics were in Oklahoma.

    Sandy @ Coyotes works as a team, and it take time, and effort, a lot of it. They don't kill a herd off, they pick them off one at a time. If they can find a doe that is dripping just before birth, they will trail her up, and kill her and the fawn unborn or not. :(

    Wow, thats why I kill coyotes every time I have a chance whether I am deer hunting or not. Coyote are pack hunters and can and will run down healthy animals as well. They are very smart predators. I say kill em all!
