    I hadn't seen any deer the few times in the woods. Mentioned that to a neighboring farmer and he said he'd been hearing coyotes in the area. When I checked my trail camera - no deer, just these. Didn't realize coyotes could/would run deer out of an area, but it sure looks like that's what happened.

    Ks. firearms season opens on Wednesday.

        Coyotes

        They were really howling here tonight.
        They will eat your dog.
        I did hear a gunshot,
        so maybe someone over there was trying to thin them out.
        Gunshots around here are normal for this time of year.

          Man, I thought you were talking about Flint, Michigan for a minute there. Not coyotes though.

              Late last season I watched 3 coyotes attempting to cut a new born calf away from it's mother. I ended their shananigans by shooting one of them. While the other two where looking around trying figure out what just happened, I got another. The third high tailed it before he got his. This season (since 11/01) I've shot 3 coyotes. There are still more than a few around. I have a railroad that runs past my lease and when an train passes with it's horn blowing the coyotes really begin yipping and howling. I've noticed that there are a lot fewer fawns this year than years past. Don't know if that is because of coyotes or the drought or both.

                That might be a GOOD thing, don't you think?

                If the coyotes, or something else helps control the deer population, hunters will actually need to scout and "hunt" for their deer, rather than just go out and flock shoot them.

                  Marv,
                  Don't ya think that's a little presumptive that hunters go out and "flock shoot" deer. I've never done anything of the like and don't know anyone that does. The deer I take are only mature deer that have already passed on their genes for another generation. Most hunters I know are the same as me in this respect.

                  As for the coyotes, In my particular region they're numbers have gotten way out of hand. To the point that they are moving into towns and cities where they snack on cute, cuddly fi-fi dogs and cats. They're numbers need to be reduced. I'm just doing my part.

                    No offense, or presumption meant. Perhaps I over exagerated the point that it isn't hard to find deer lately. And in many places they do as much or more damage than coyotes do. Unfortunately, not enough of them manage to cross the roads when traffic is passing by, so we can't count on that to help control them.

                    Maybe if coyotes, and whatever other natural controls of the deer population are allowed to do so, and more civic minded folks like yourself, "do their part", to control the coyotes, everything will be back in balance, again someday.:notworthy:

                      Marv.... Down here in SC there are many vehicles damaged by deer collisions. Driving down most any road, even in congested areas, you see them on the sides and crossing roads night and day. My buddy had one hit his Sunnybrook and did some damage to the side.

                        On our recent drive, between Virginia and the Dakotas, we encountered many more deer, in all areas, than either of us can remember on any similar trip.

                        Maybe it was because it was during hunting season, but there were a lot of them moving around out there. We took extra measures during peak "moving" times, around dawn and dusk to be sure we missed them. We did see several moving along the roads well after dark.

                          Yes this is the worst time of the year for them.
                          We are over run with them here.
                          We need more predators.
                          But they shoot the lions too.

                              We think this one made it through rifle season...none of us got him, nor the neighbor. I jumped a nice buck this past Saturday morning - could be the same fellow. And I think it's the same deer in both photos. I'll be watching for his sheds in a couple of months. George in K.C.

                                That's a fine looking mature buck. Kansas has some really nice ones. I would love to hunt there some day. But like everywhere else unless you own land hunting has become quite expensive.
