That’s exactly what happened to me. Bout half gutted. Lost one ham and a little tinder loin. Thanks!Great buck James Scott, congratulations and thanks for sharing! I let one lay for afew hours on a bow kill, went to get him and the coyotes had gutted it and started on one of the hams. I hate those things! I appreciate you killing the coyote earlier.

Let him lay 2 hours after dark to give him plenty of time. Coyotes paid me back from taking out one of their numbers this morning by getting to my buck before I got back. Not sure if 12 or 13 scoreble points yet. Took me hours to get him out by myself. Finally able to post. Congrats to everyone else who also put meat in the freezer. God is good.
Had a great day saw 5 bucks all chasing or cruising
Left about 11 and got back in around 3 just got settled in and had already see one 8 pointer on the walk in.
5 minutes later this brute shows up he was on a mission, couldn't get a shot as he was walking threw the tree tops on the other side of the hill from me.
I stayed on him until he got above them, I ranged hi. At 332 yrds he stopped and I shot I could hear the bullet impact and he turned and just stood there, I hit him again and he stumbled over the ridge.
I waited about 10 minutes and went to see if I could find blood which I didn't because he was laying about 30 yrds away. 12 points 16 in wide 10 in points. View attachment 94180 View attachment 94181
