For ten years, sows and boars I killed in Scurry and Stonewall counties were totally gone in three days or less without ever opening up the guts or anything else. I’m now much farther East in Mills County and hogs I killed in mid-October and early November are nearly mummified, while deer carcasses dumped within a couple of yards of the hog carcasses are hit overnight. The only difference that I can see is the coyote population is considerably lower where I am in Mills County than it was out West. Maybe it’s just a matter of competition amongst the coyotes?

I know........maybe because the hog I put out is basically being refrigerated....the scavengers have simply decided not to 'Eat it all at once'. wink


Or maybe not. bolt

The dead critters are not ripening. If they don’t stink, the buzzards can’t find them. There’s a dead feral cat in my back pasture that is untouched after maybe 10 days. It had a blood pressure problem....

Buzzards and Coyotes both know exactly where the one I set out is located, they just aren't eating much of it.
