Came across this during deer season. Its off out in the middle of nowhere at least 800 yards from the nearest pasture road. No sign of any type of human activity around it. For reference, the pile is about 3 feet tall. The only big animals on the ranch are cattle and there was some old cow patties around, but I've never seen one uproot plants and make a pile out of them. Maybe a hog, although they're pretty scarce around there (thankfully) and they don't usually pile stuff up. Plus the ground wasn't really disturbed. Looked more like it had been scraped off. What does the brain trust say?

Could the scrape and piled up brush be coincidental, and not related? Dead brush blown by the wind ends up there. Just happens to be a place where the deer create a scrape.

Pig probably made a nice bed to dump a fresh litter out in.

Hogs. They eat the yucca tubers. I've had them do that on my place this winter.

Looks like a trap bedded in front of a cubbie. Any trappers in the area?

High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

By the looks of it an adolescent, probably needs 4-6 more years.

Poacher... that cleared the ground to sit quietly and used the dead lay down as a back rest.

That would be a LONG walk. It's about 10 miles to a paved road and at least 3 miles to the nearest locked gate.

Rosie killed four in a spot we found quail hunting last weekend. It looked a lot like that.
