I’ve had a buck here I shot once left 7 hours overnight and nothing left but hide and bones. 3-4-5 yotes can make quick work of a deer. Other times I’ve seen them take days or more. I put a cam over a winter kill and had a pair visit that carcass for weeks. They would dig down into the snow and eat off it and lay around. Then not return for days.

Same here, a few years ago I shot a doe opening night, wasn't sure where the hit was so decided to wait a bit. Well it started pouring shortly after. I decided just to wait til the morning and do a body search. The next morning it was still pouring, I looked for an hour or so through a bunch of thick stuff. I expanded out to the more open woods and I almost stepped on a leg, separated from the body, it was the entire front shoulder with a piece of hide hanging from it. I looked and looked and never did find the rest of the body. It does not take them long.

I have also seen a carcass dragged away and picked clean in 24 hrs. but a rule it takes a couple of days or so to pick it clean.

 That could also be a wolf kill. I believe parts of Montana are having some problems with wolves

They also have a population of mountain lions and grizzlies.

 Could have been any of the above.

Mmm...id like to yote hunt there!

They know a guy who’s high school, aged son bought a new pick up off the money he got from one year of trapping them ( many years ago )  . They have a pic of what looks like a long wood fence lining a road, it’s really the pelts hanging on a wire fence .

My buddy shot s doe couple years ago and we waited until morning to track.  They had it down to bones.  Only thing on the head that was touch was a chunk missing out of an ear.  It's insane they are that much of the face.    Are there wolves in Montana?  Maybe that's what got ahold of it.

Coyotes picking clean a deer overnight is very common  in my area of the Catskills. I've had a few deer that I had bow shot in evenings and found in the morning devoured by coyotes. I'm now reluctant to shoot a deer close to sun down.
