Hunt Story

Around 5:15, a doe and a yearling entered the food plot and started eating corn on my corn pile. After a few minutes a spike came out and chased both of them out of the food plot and into the woods. The spike came back and started feeding, and then just before dark started staring in the edge of the woods. As light was fading the 11-point entered the food plot and was about to run the spike off the corn pile when I made the 35-yard shot with my bow. I knew the shot was a little far back, so we decided to let him lay overnight. I called a good buddy of mine Taylor Farrow and his tracking dog Aggie to help me recover the buck at first light the next morning. About 50 yards into the track the blood really picked up and we were able to see blood the whole way as Aggie led us to the deer. After about 300 yards we found my buck, but the coyotes had gotten to him before we did. They ate every bit of meat and guts on the deer all the way up to the top of the neck. Of all the deer Farrow has tracked he said he’s never seen coyotes eat one this bad in one night. Makes you wonder how many coyotes it took to eat the whole deer like that.
