    So, this is what happens when you wait after the shot. Bow hit, not quite certain, so my buddy waited to make sure it was down.
    It was down alright, Four gullets.
    Within 1.5 hours of the shot this was the result. (in broad day light today)


    Antlers and ten inches of the neck....

    The Coyotes in this area are going to be part of my personal wide ranging PAC program later this winter.:mad:

    Wow, that didn't take long at all. At least you'll still be able to do a mount. Let me know if you need some help with those yotes, Brickburn :)

    I left one overnight years ago in early season and there was nothing but bones and a bloodspot in the AM. A buddy killed one in SK and we (as per SK law) stopped trailing at dark. The thin frozen bloodtrail the next AM widened out just past hid 1st bed with bright fresh blood and we found him 200yds further and the meager scraps that were left were still not starting to freeze at -25 so they must have found him shortly before first light and made short work of him. Coyotes are a plague there and there is a bounty on them, for residents, Non-residents however are not allowed to shoot them???????? Not sure what genius thought that one up.

    This is one that was left out over night. Ten hours in an Coyote infested prairie river valley I can understand. But yesterdays events in broad day light.

    It will be made into a Euro for sure.
    His largest bow trophy to date.
    It was never being shoulder mounted but it would have been nice to at least have tasted him. :)

    Darn shame BB, my condolences to your friend. It would not have applied in this situation as the recovery had not been made, and it's probably an obvious thing to do. But if you ever have to tag an animal and come back later for it, take a whizz on a few trees nearby or the ground if there aren't any. Take off a piece of clothing, preferably one that's been against your skin, and lay it over the animal or hang it from a branch.

    I did this a number of years ago with a mulie buck that I had to come back the next day with my horse to get out. Deer was never touched and probably not even approached.

    In Grizz country a good thing is covering the animal up with branches and spruce bows. Wolves and coyotes will come in and eat the gut pile but will not touch anything under the pile, there is still a chance an actual Grizz may come and claim it but no more than if you had done nothing at all. This has worked on a few animals in tough spots for us and on 2 the wolves actually did eat the guts and circle 15' back or so from the covered up carcass but would not approach closer.

    Good idea. I think a combination of the two would be very effective.

    Nice buck. Too bad the coyotes got him! About 15 years ago 2 of us killed a buck way back in the boondocks late in the day. Gutted them and left overnight. Got there about 10 AM next day w/ help. Had snowmobile troubles on the way back in and slowed us down a couple of hours... Ravens and eagles.. One of the eagles was so full he almost couldn't fly. We lost right at half of the meat on those 2 deer.
    Probably 10 years ago over to Jackson Hole my son son and I killed a raghorn bull and wounded a calf. I trailed the calf until dark and never got another shot. Next AM I trailed it down to what was left... Legs and a piece of spine. Wolves or coyotes. They left very little. Always try to get them out same day if we can. Bruce

    I've had a clients zebra taken by a pair of Lion on a bowhunt and also had a clients wounded warthog intercepted by Lions during a rifle hunt! Makes for exciting campfire stories!!!

    I loved the logic of taking a bunch of Elk eating Wolves and turning them loose hoping they would control the Bison. Wonder why the Alberta Elk eaters ate all the Montana Elk.

    Up here the Wolves tend to have more respect. They can be hunted without a tag during any big game season and all year long on private land (residents).

    I am just going to have to teach these local Coyotes some respect for our deer come January.

    I expect that in Africa. If a Lion is present I expect he/she thinks she is at the top of the food chain. They are if all I am carrying is a bow. :)

    Isn't it staggering that humans with all their so called intelligence will still make the assumption that animals can reason??

    Wolves must eat Bison coz there's too many of them and therefore will!? :doh2:
