Default DN yote w/LDPS

I was in my favorite stand this morning watching some does. I saw a big buck earlier but he was on a mission. At about 8:20am 4 does come out with a small buck in tow and not one but two Yotes behind them. I gave a small whistle which was enough to get the brute to stop and look up. Too bad for him, that was all the pause I needed to let one fly and take him out. This was the largest yote I ever seen in my life. He weighed almost 50 pounds with very large teeth. He was over 4 feet long from nose to tail. I took him straight to the taxidermist after pics. For what it's worth, the taxidermist said he had never seen one this big either.
