Default Shot a doe in Fayette country this a.m.

Had 3 does come in this morning around 7:40 and stayed for about 10 min till I was able to get a shot off on a pretty good sized one. I shot her while she was walking and shot her pretty far back in her mid section. I was 20' up in a tree and the shot was a little over 20 yards away, slightly quartering away. Camera was about 2' to the left of my bow. I'm not proud of the shot but I backed out and will give her till lunch. We have a dog and I'm almost certain she bedded up out in the pasture about 120 yards away. The arrow had some blood and some clear liquid, probably some liver and guts.



Hopefully everyone had a great morning! Beautiful weather!

Well guys, she did end up dying right where I thought she did. I didn't believe it but in about 2 hours the coyotes already had here guts taken out. Good thing though is they didn't touch any of the main meat. You just never want to take the chance of jumping them so I waited.

Man that was quick! I am assuming it would still be good to eat if they just got the guts and such?

How come( I am seriously asking)? I would think that they did him a favor. That deer cooled quickly and I can't see how they hurt the quarters at all.

They did pretty much totally field dress her for me lol. The coyotes touched just the front of one hind so we didn't mess with that but everything else was still fine. She's quartered and on ice now.

Definitely do need to kill some coyotes though!

Here's a picture from my video cameras view finder. Bucks seem to still be in their batchelor groups around here, no chasing yet.

I've had coyotes do twice that damage in less than 45 minutes. They must have been in the same area and watched her drop. I unfortunately only got to eat the backstraps.
Congratulation on the success.

She is a good dog! Only 2 years old but we try to let her track everything we shoot. She has a heck of a nose on her, she just brought a field mouse over to me a second ago that she found.

Oh I definitely believe it! I was just shocked because it was during daylight and only about 100 yards from my stand but it was in tall grass and I had left the area.

Pretty much same except I actually sat in bow blind giving her time to die. Never heard yotes. When I found her I got real nervous thinking there may have been a mountain lion around and I was now standing over its dinner. I was constantly on watch waiting for my ride to come pick me up.

Geezzz, ya I know they can be sneaky when they want to. I'm just glad the buzzards hadn't found her yet, I wouldn't tough anything those creatures start eating on.

The yotes at Georgetown lake are super thick. I shot a doe a little back and began trailing after 30 minutes. I caught a glimpse of her and three yotes back in the bushes. They had her pinned down and were covering her mouth so she couldn't scream out. I negotiated 3 chew toys and 2 big cans of pedigree chicken flavor for her return.
