I'd like to get some feedback on the topics of losing a deer to coyotes. A few years back my brother shot a doe just before dark. The doe was quartering away from him and he hit her just a hair further back than was ideal and hit the liver. We knew right away from the blood that it was a liver shot and gave her a good hour before we went looking. Of course she ran directly into a swamp and we were looking with flashlights and jumped a deer in the swamp and assumed it was the doe. It was supposed to be cool that night so we decided to look for her in the morning. When we found the doe the next morning the coyotes had taken to her and the only thing left was the front shoulders. We all got that sick in the stomache feeling while we looked the deer over and wondered what to do. I called a warden friend of mine and asked him what were we supposed to do? Do we tag the deer and take maybe 10lbs of meat off her or leave the deer there for the coyotes to finish up? The warden just said that we never had this conversation and good luck with the rest of the season. Nothing makes me feel worse than losing a deer and I was just wondering if this has happened to anyone else and what did you do?
