These photos show us the gruesome truth that sometimes goes forgotten in the wild. Many of us spend lots of time and money managing our property for deer by planting food plots, creating bedding areas, etc., but how many of us spend time managing the predators on our grounds? Research shows that coyote populations can only be marginally controlled for short periods of time, as litter sizes and the number of females that enter heat increase as the population declines. What are your thoughts on predators and predator control?
We are unsure as to the origin of these photos, but what we see is fairly clear. At least two coyotes attack and kill this big buck. Granted, we don't know if he was sick or injured (he appears healthy in the photos) but one thing is for sure, he lost his life to coyotes!
