Never seen this before.  Poor little bugger.  Cool picture though!

Looking at this makes me itchy to use that new 22 mag. Wish the fields we're clear sit out in.  Almost as many yote pictures as deer pictures this year.

Reminds me of a movie quote from " Ulzana's Raid"  one of the best westerns involving Apaches I have seen.

The quote from scout Burt Lancaster could very well be referring to coyotes, rather than Apaches...

Zooming in I only see the shoulders and head. I’d say a vehicle destroyed that deer and not a coyote 

There's no road within a mile man.  Most likely a portion is in that dogs rather bloated belly.

Yeah I get it Pygmy, they gotta eat too and there's a crapload of deer.  I've found too many dead farm animals to have anything but animosity to coyotes.

Shoot, shovel, and shut up.....

There should be a year round season on them!

Left unchecked, we've seen first hand what they do to the deer population on our property.

Its all part of nature, I get if they are getting livestock or pets, but they are just doing what yotes do. Ive found when prey #numbers get low they move on kinda like natures cycle

I wasn't implying that you shouldn't control them....Using whatever methods that are necessary...

I would have felt the same way about Apaches during the 1880s, when they were busy  having their fun butchering and torturing

people...

Every year, in late winter, I find 3 or 4 mauled whitetail remains on my property.  Every spring, when fawns are being dropped and coyote season is closed, I see lots of them around on my land.  I swear NY State promotes this to lower the whitetail population.

But yet seeing them in the woods is harder than seeing a trophy buck. We all know they are out there but if I see one every five or so years I'd be lucky. Yet tracks after track and sign after sign of a heavy presence in the area.

That's mother nature and the cycle of life .

Not nature, just the coyotes that become over populated in it.
I bet you don't have an overpopulation issue when we're talking animals YOU deem useful though... Walleyes or bass? Deer? I'm just saying, if there's an "overpopulation" of coyotes then the critters they eat may be too. Nature levels itself out.

I always have a couple around and plenty of deer.
I do have a young one that won’t stay outa the yard and come open season he will end that habit. He was eating apples under the tree 30 yards out the back door the other night. I walked out and yelled and clapped and he did not want to leave and didn’t hurry.

One walked to within 30 yards of me yesterday afternoon while I was on a tractor bush-hogging.  It did not show any concern whatsoever and acted like a tame dog.  I would have loved to shot it with my .22 but until they change the law, I will hold off.

I wonder who started the butchering,and who invaded whose territory.

I wonder the same thing...Was it the Spaniards  ??  Perhaps it was the  Pueblos or the Navahos...

Probably it was the Hebrews...The Nazis seemed to think they were to blame for everything...

I'm glad we got THAT figured out !!...

Bless yore heart, Wolc… I never do any illegal either....Glad there are a COUPLE of us good guys left....

Of course, I must admit that I got a ticket for an unsafe tire back in 1968...The guilt from that STILL haunts me....<<sob>>…...

I am hoping that all of those thousands of dollars  I have donated over the last fifty years to the Widows and Orphans Fund have squared me  with the Big Guy up above...

I blew it up as much as possible on this end and it looks the fawn could still be alive. The coyote has a death grip around it's throat which could very well paralyze it OR as suggested earlier it was a fresh road kill.
