Great looking deer OR58. Really cool coyote too, unusual coloration too, very “siberian husky-esque”. 1st one I’ve seen that wasn’t just scroungy gray or brown-colored. Congrats on the pair.

Roger that Chris!

As I sat in my stand and light began to dawn, I noticed what appeared to be a deer lying 20 yards from me. Yep, a recent coyote killed fawn. At that point, my deer hunt became a deer/coyote hunt. About 8am, three yotes came trotting in for a morning snack. Two tans and this big German Shepherd marked male. He cave me a perfect broadside shot at 30 yards. Dropped right in his tracks!

Nice buck you got there too!

Thanks!
Yes. There is an even darker one out there. My buddy just shot belly hair off him that same morning. We knew it wasn't the same yote because he saw it again later that day, after I had already killed mine.

That deer is probably still worth all 4 I tagged this year. At least in meat. Certainly in total antler :-)

As before, that’s a cool Coyote. Still my hope
I can tag a yote some year.

My kids have been claiming for awhile they’ve been seeing a black/very dark coloration coyote in our backwoods near the creek. I’ve seen nothing when I’ve gone out to investigate with a little .223 persuasion. They’ve been saying they’ve been hearing coyotes occasionally also. And claim when I’ve played them howling and yipping videos of yotes that is what they’ve been hearing.

Caught this on one of my game cams from mid December. Haven’t checked the pictures from the camera by the creek where there is more animal foot traffic and two crossings, but there are 1246 images from 2 months and it isn’t prone to false triggering or small animals like squirrels triggering it like the other game camera is.

Of course half are probably pictures of my kids playing in the creek.

On unrelated creek news, it’s near the spring feed source (just 2 properties away is one of the springs and 3 properties for the other spring) and feeds down to the Potapsco. Shallow here. My son managed to catch and release about a 4” small mouth out of the deeper pocket on the creek on our property! I didn’t know they could get that far upstream or that big there (pocket is about 2’ deep and maybe 15x8’ in size). Most of the creek is only 1-3” deep along the property and about 3-6’ wide (the whole thing is about 12-15’ wide to the walls of the creek, but the creek bed isn’t that wide short of massive rain fall). Caught a couple other 2” or so fish. All using power bait and really small hooks.

Not a "whacking" but I found this news article with a trail cam video of a buck shedding his antlers. Never seen it before so it was really cool.

Thats a cool video thanks for sharing it.

One time I was working on the way to Hudson and seen a buck come from across the road because someone drove back into the Beckwith woods and pushed him out.
He ran all the way across, then the road full bore, seen me and the truck and jumped the ditch that was a pretty good stretch.
When he did it, he nosedived hard front legs under almost making it but not quite. Without skipping a beat both antlers cast right off and he went on through like nothing even happened.
After seeing that is when I started shed horn hunting a lot. They're the ones I use for rattling to this day.
It was right before the regulator platform on circuit 521/522 like anybody knows where that's at lol.
