This morning I no more than got into my stand and I heard something coming through the woods. I hurried up and pulled my bow up and got ready. A nice doe came through and I ranged her at 41 yards. As soon as she hit the clearing, I shot. She ran across the marsh and then I lost her. I sat back down and figured I would just sit since it was early and a buck might come on through after her.
About 10 minutes later, I heard a lot of rustling around where she entered the woods. I didn't think anything of it because I figured it was just a buck or something. Anyway, I got down around 9'ish to go look for her. I found my bloody arrow and I walked directly to where I had last seen her.
She made it about 200 yards before piling up. Problem was, the rustling I heard was coyotes (or wolves) finding her first! The ground was pretty solid and somewhat frozen around her, so there really weren't any tracks, so I'm guessing coyotes. Below is what was left of her. You can see my entrance hole. Quite a waste of a deer! Now I know another spot to call coyotes after deer season.
