Wolves took my Deer!!!

10 posts in this topic

Last saturday i shot a nice doe around 120 - 130 lbs. Made a good hit and saw the deer run and then heard it go down. I tracked it for alittle bit and was losing light so i went to the truck to get my 3 hunting buddies to help recover the deer. When we got back to tracking, the deer seem to keep on going the bloob trail was good and for the life of me i couldnt figure out why she wasnt down. Then the wolves started howling. My buddy said in his joking little tone hey they got your deer (hahaha). He was right another 50 yards and we found the guts all over and you could tell the wolves picked it up and ran off with it. The kinda scary part is that all this took place within 1 hour. I know alot of guys have lost deer to wolves and i just wanted to share my story, a first for me and i hate feeding wolves. Good luck hunting everyone.

Yea, you may not want to wear any deer scent on yourself.Hunting alone with a bow would be uncomfortable.

Wow, that is fast. I lost a deer to yotes last year, so I can relate. At least the deer wasn't wasted/lost.

You might want to keep the poodle inside at night though.

I really wish that they would open a wolf hunting season....there are definitely enough of them up there for it. However I just read in our outdoor magazine here in IL that they put them back on the endangered species list. The tree hugger types said that they were taken off the list prematurely and that they needed to go back on. So now it is not looking really favorable for a season in the near future and now it is actually illegal for ranchers and farmers to kill them again so they have to call authorities if they have a nuisance problem. I am not sure what to think. If any of you guys have heard any other news about this I would be really interested to hear it.

Wolves will not touch a human, I don't care how much you might think, they ran off with iroutdoors deer cause they don't like humans. look at the facts, how many times have humans been attacked in the last ten years. You cannot let them get you. I had wolves clean up my gut pile a week before rifle season last year and they swept the area, the deer got pushed out but returned shortly thereafter.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
