All summer we heard coyotes out back - this is the first winter I can ever remember with no shrub damage and not one deer seen out back. I am thinking there is a correlation? I give it another year or two and deer hunting around here will be a thing of the past unless they get rid of the damn coyotes.

Holy cow, that trail cam shows pictures from the future, where can i get one of those???
That would make deer hunting a whole lot easier.

I shot 2 last week, one was a buck that had already dropped his rack.
If it wasn't for deer hunting there is no way i could get through the Northeast winters, i would have to move south.
My butcher grinds bacon in with the burger.......mmm mmm good!!

I have seen studies from the DNR here in Michigan where fawn predation account for 60% of a coyotes diet. They run them in pacts and where them out.

I shot one little doe this year. I only saw three deer all season and that includes at the feeders up by my house. I usually see hundreds of deer on my property but not this year. Of course the coyote tracks are everywhere. I think its time to do a little varmint hunting.

I stopped shooting/eating them when I saw a doe with 1 too many legs... Thank you chem lawn.

There is also a local consumption warning from Aberdeen Prooving Grounds because they contain high lead levels.

Sit in a tree stand and spool a Penn 130 with 400lb test and dangle a apple from a 14/0 tuna hook and have some fun
