Left my deer sitting 2 hours and look what happened! Little bastard walked up on me while i was quartering him up and had to chase him off with a stick! (left my bow at my stand) AAAND YES he was a spike, the other antler was unbranched.
Surprising how fast they can get on them. Had two hunters this year have the same thing happen. One was in Kansas and the yotes cleaned it completely over night. The other one was in an area with relatively few coyotes. His deer hadn't laid for more than 45min and he ran 3 coyotes off of it when he went to recover.
I had a nice pack of yotes beat me to my doe one night. It was a perfect storm as I'm trailing her through some thick stuff. Lantern runs out of fuel. Pull out the flashlight and a few yards later it goes dead on me. Not 10 seconds later a bunch of yotes light up only 30 yards away from me.
Not gonna lie, I with a quickness.
I come back the next day to find my doe exactly where the yotes lit off the night before. Stripped clean as a whistle.
