Disappointing evening

Recommended Posts

So tonight I hooked up the old drag to the ATV and started working a spot I'm throwing some plot mix on just for this year. Well my pointer and weim were wandering around while I was out there and found a fresh fawn kill. My pointer actually brought me the fawns head and about 3" of meat and majority of the hide from the shoulders forward. It had a slight smell but it must have been killed last night no rigor mortis in the ears. A little in the jaw.

 

Anyone know what kind of predator leaves the head and most of the hide? I will say I had some big bobcat tracks and one set of coyote this winter.

I'm guessing coyote. They love this time of year.

Yeah that's what I figured. Haven't heard any in a long time though.

As others have suggested probably Coyote.  I would also ask if you have seen any Eagles around lately?  I drove down to Ithaca Sunday and saw an Eagle.  When rabbits are killed in my yard by hawks, usually only the head is left.

I'm going with a coyote! I just got a pic on one of my cameras of one of those bastards chasing a fawn in my food plot. Good thing is 2 mins later the yote came back by empty handed.

The coyotes eat all but the legs, bears on the other hand leave the skull. My tracking dog found a spot where a bear had 14 fawn skulls scattered around in it's bedding area. (Bear hair n scat found to confirm a bear) Later that year a 350lb bear was shot close to that spot. Their sense of smell gives them a huge advantage to find the fawns.
