I gotta' tell ya', I have gutted hundreds of animals in my life but I could barely stomach looking at those cam pics. That animal fought for its life for over 2 hours! I am glad you posted it because people need to know - but that is one hell of a way to go.
That is some amazing work John. You are an artist for sure.
For those folks who do not know, Randomshot is a fantastic local taxidermist. He produced my buddies Euro - New Mexico elk mount as well as my euro oryx mount. We both could not be happier with his work and his prices - I recommend Randomshot for sure. I have also seen his shoulder mount work and it is excellent. SCH endorses his work and encourages its members to contact him for taxidermy services.
I will post a picture of death row (enhanced) in a couple of days (once the oryx is up on the wall).
With NBK on both replys , someone sent me these photos last year, makes me want to shoot another pile, as for Random shot (Jon) he has done at least 8 to 10 Euro mounts for me over the years, top notch guy that does outstanding work, Im sure I already posted his contact info on here last year.
I would think that a deer like that must have been sick or week. I once saw two coyotes chase a small buck (forky) for @ a half mile . Then the deer got in a spot that he had nowhere to go so he stood his ground. The coyotes were doing circles around it trying to nip at the back legs. after about 30 seconds of that the deer ran one of the coyotes over and was gone. They didn't want anything to do with it after he ran one over.
As for John he's ok if you don't mind getting your ass kicked at bowfishing. ;D
yea something just aint right..the deer appears to be healthy..but im with lungpopper somethings wrong with him..maybe some CWD ...you mean to tell me hes going to stand in one spot for 2 hours and get eaten by 2 yotes?i dont think so.. ive seen does chase off dogs on several occasions...
I am new to hunting and have been wondering what to hunt. After seeing those pics I know for sure what I want to hunt. I will enjoy every part of hunting coyotes. If you guys have any pointers to get me started hunting coyotes, I would appreciate it.
