    You may have to zoom in a little, but a picture is worth a thousand words. Most not suitable on a family forum.

    When I blew up the pic it looks really full or really fat. A target of opportunity. Try to remember you can't get them all. Even if you killed them all on your place Mother Nature will fill the vacuum and others will move in to take its place.

      Some picture quality was lost in the down load, but the coyote has an entire front leg in his mouth. He's got it around the knee area with the shoulder on the left side of the pic and the hoof dangling down on the right. I don't mind having a few of them around, just wish they'd stick to eating mice.

        Ok I see it now. Yep, that would set me off and I'd be driving around well armed myself.

          I imagine trying to raise a family on mice is tough. I would think it would be tough for a lone coyote to bring down a deer unless it catches one in deep snow. Maybe he scrounged a road kill. You never know. One place I hunted in Montana had quite a few coyotes this year but still tons of deer running around. Hardly any pheasants though. But then again there were hardly any pheasants anywhere, especially up in the hills like that place where the unusually heavy snow accumulation was deeper the previous winter.

            All they gotta do is nip the hamstring.
            They usually run as a group and get a deer tired.
            Had a doe slip into deadfall to evade stray dogs.
            It worked, they lost her.
            Popped out not long after they left.
            Had one stayed, coulda got the drop on her.

            Have heard them take down a deer, right at dawn. Awful racket. Dunno if deer was healthy or injured (highway crossing nearby).

            With that highway crossing........lots of em dead on field edges.
            Easy meal for the yotes. They didn't last long either.

            Is cool watching them hunt mice though.
            Used to hit the pasture pretty regularly.
            Of course then they'd see my goose dekes and come for a bigger meal, and end up dead.

            Dunno how much stray dog blood the yotes have around here. But a 40# is not uncommon. Some quite a bit bigger.

              LOL, A steady diet of mice for pups might be like feeding my kids hotdogs and ramen noodles every day.

              Road kill is possible but based on the proportions of the dog and the leg I'm thinking it's one of this years fawns. Here's a pic to give you an idea of their size right now. Doubt one would be very hard for a 'yote to take out

                Agreed

                Same size here. Occasionally pushing 60#.

                  A new born fawn is a piece of cake for an adult 'yote.
                  It isn't inconceivable that a late bred doe can deliver in late May to early July.
                  Between the 'yotes and feral hogs around here, I don't know how we have ANY game to hunt!
                  Rats, mice and cotton tails are pretty thick right now.
                  I'm looking for the predator population to start expanding.

                  Can't save them all.
                  A big 'yote around here would probably go 30 to 40 pounds. As many drug addled pit bull breeders as there are in this area, I'm surprised we don't gave a whole new species of "coydog".

                  P.S. - just completed an Anderson AR15 w/ a Bear Creek Arsenal heavy barrel in .223 Wylde.
                  'Yotes is it's specific purpose!

                    Here's a better picture of a fawn with it's mother. Earlier the same day, same camera that caught the 'yote.

                        Yikes!

                        Similar from the year before last. Deer was bedded most of the night, got up during the daylight. You may be able to make out the blood on the ham. we found the deer about 50 yards away and the one antler halfway between. Would have been a decent buck for our area. This one had been hit poorly in the shoulder with what appeared to be an arrow wound, but it was late muzzleloader at the time and archery season had been over for a few weeks. The buck may have not made it anyway but still.....
