I've never lost a calf to a coyote despite having cows most my life. I have had them come in to eat the afterbirth or eat a still born calf but haven't lost a live one to them. I completely understand killing them on your farm or hunting for them (I've done both). What I don't understand is...
The question I have is why would you want to pull off interstate, away from home, and shoot a healthy animal? I guess I don't understand the desire. It's kind of like people who swerve to hit opossums, I guess I don't understand.
I don't think they are property markers. There are too many. The property had been in the same family for well over a hundred years and the boundary is pretty far off.

I bought a farm last May. After the leaves fell I noticed something in the woods. Upon closer inspection I found several piles of these stacked flat rocks. I thought it might have been where somebody cleared a field out but who on earth would takes the time to stack them like this? Anybody seen...
If you guys are that concerned about people taking pictures of your deer, why are you taking them to local processors and taxidermist. If I was as concerned as you seem to be (and hopefully I never will be) I would be hauling my deer far enough away that no one would know me.
Had 5 does come around the ridge above me at a pretty quick pace. Nothing behind them though. I sure would like to see something besides a doe or this five pointer I have seen a hundred times since Saturday.
Makes you wonder how much this has an effect on things?
I have been known to climb down to about 5 feet in my summit and take a nap. Did that a couple years ago and woke up to a bobcat staring at me about 5 yards away. That thing was so close I could spit on him. I don't know who was more surprised.
