Not what you want to see on the trail cameras

I missed seeing what was happening in the woods so I decided to put a couple of cameras back out to see what was roaming around.

I am not a fan of this.  I have had pictures of this coyote for a while now and he (I assume it’s a he) is always solo.  He’s healthy and makes his rounds in the same area that we do during the season.  And I assume that he is the coyote that I saw while I was sitting in my stand last fall.

Coyotes are a part of the woods and I get that but what I don’t want to find are dead deer. This is the first time that I have had pictures of the two animals so close together (timewise and location-wise)

Usually, I will get deer on the cameras, then he shows up and it takes 2-3 days before the deer return. We have not had a lot of snow so the deer have not yarded up yet. Maybe that will help keep them safe for the time being.

Let’s see how the winter unfolds…
