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.

    • Never underestimate what a pussycat in her prime can bring down.      
    • 1.23.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye!   On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too!   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head.   This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report.   We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
    • I think the good news is we haven't look great lately but are still putting up wins, nothing wrong with that. Preds have been playing well lately and we were back to back so not going to get too concerned over that loss. Heck Kuemper even looked decent last night. CM Haula and Pommers have looked a little better lately. I am starting to hope Parise is still injured or something, he kind of looks like he is doing everything as usual but just can't get anything going. If this is him aging we are in trouble, lots of years left on that contract. Maybe just a bad season or fighting the puck I just don't know but something is off with him. The good news is we don't need a lot of out of him right now, just a little bit of elevated play and every now and then contributing on the score sheet. Granlund and Zucker have been just crazy good, even without Koivu last night they were our best line, always dangerous.
    • Over last week I left my generator in my fishouse and didn't shut off the propane.  My CO detector alarmed.   When I opened the door to clear it out I could smell a difference.  It didn't smell like either gas or propane - just different.   It only took a few minutes to clear the alarm but I'm not leaving the generator in there anymore and making sure I turn off the propane.  I usually do that but didn't get it done this last time.  The furnace was shut off like usual though.
    • I am looking at the HT Ice Blue and HT Ice Blue Pro rods.  Is there really a difference?  Which one is the better buy?
    • I've owned both the Nils 6 inch Trekker and the Kdrill 6 inch.   In my "opinion", I like the Nils over the Kdrill.   Nils has less torque when drilling, you get more holes per battery, it is faster then Kdrill,  the NIl's material is better to handle thick ice,  you could use it as a hand drill if you run out of battery, and if you get the Trekker model you can make it different lengths.   Kdrill's advantage is it is lighter and you can reopen holes since it is a chipper style blade. I don't open old holes so I sold my Kdrill. 
    • It's already happened....  
    • So what is the Leech Lake Blood Bath Days???
    • Thanks guys for the quick ID response !  It's still hanging around this morning! Maybe another result of climate change?
    • Interesting. Have never seen one around our place in the winter,  although it is surprising sometimes how many birds seem to stay very late into the winter.
