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.

    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!
