Well, if they are protected that's another matter. If I need protection from the protected, that's another matter to. ;)

In all seriousness though I have worked among coyotes and wolves and never been threatened. Wolves are even more shy than coyotes in my experience.

I don't remember anyone talking about coyotes around here until 30 years ago. The old guides never mentioned them in any writings and history of this area.
Move'n on.

Doh.  Sorry to hear that.  Up here, it's an entirely different matter.

DANG!  Why did they start putting button Safetys on Marlin Lever actions? That Dang coyote dont know how close he come to getting his hair parted. The pedators are running amuck! He ran down the powerline like he owned the place. No wonder were not seeing any deer.

CLICK

Probably a good thing as I have found out since I pulled the trigger that Coyote hunting is now suspended during deer firearm season for fear of somebody shooting the pet wolfs.  :-\

Varmits on your own property that are causing or may cause harm to your property can be shot at any time of the day, week, month and year.  I'm sure that coyote was about to cause some harm  :) :)

Got this guy early Saturday morning, just after daylight.  8-pt somewhere around 13-14" spread and 140-150lbs.  It was blowing rain sideways, so I was really surprised to see anything moving around at all.  This is the third year in a row that I've shot a nice buck out of this stand, so hopefully the luck will continue  :)  I'm heading back home all next week for Thanksgiving break, I plan on being out in the woods everyday

Nice catch, Adam.  Mmmm Mmmm.  That'll make for some yummy venison stew.

Do you do any trapping around there?  Last night at a church gathering, one of my buddies told me his brother caught a wolf in his trap line.  This is perfectly legal up here.  They are very excited and think they can trap 2 or 3 more this winter.  A good tanned wolf pelt will bring around $700.  They are interested in selling what they catch but I'd be interested in getting a pelt so my wife could make me a wolf skin hat and mittens/gloves.

Nice buck there VT_Forestry. The back ground is awesome in the picture also. Beautiful colors and contrast there.

Warbird , I don't do any trapping but there are some people around who do. They mostly trap beavers and other fur bearers. Not really much to trap around here. I did trap some skunks one year.Don't want to do that again.

P.S. I will be having fried back strap and taters and biscuits and gravy to go with it.

Thanks ADAMINMO, that's on my parents property in Rockbridge County, VA.  We have around 165 acres or so, had it all my life so I've been very blessed with a beautiful area to spend time in  :)

Nice deer guys, way to go!

I've been chisel plowing the last couple of days and have seen tons of deer. Between that and the great pictures here I'm really getting antsy to hunt myself.

Adaminmo, looks like he has good mass just needs more points. :D Passed on a  8 and 9 point the last couple of days, still looking for the 11 pointer. Since I have till next  tuesday, in no hurry. Don't want to shot one I don't want as I have about 90 days to bow hunt yet. Probably will shoot a doe or two, as I can donate them to the Harvest for the Needy.

It is what I call a managment buck. Get out the small cull buck so the others can get bigger. I can still harvest 2 bucks with my archery tags. That is how I want to kill a "Big Buck" this year. We have a few 8's and a big 10 point roaming the farm still but they are more nocturnal right now due to the moon phase. This weekend should be excellent and muzzle loader season will be awesome I think.

I beleive he is a 3-4 year old. This is the 3rd year I have seen him up close. 2 years ago he was a 6 point.He had the same rack last year is why he is hanging this year. Thought that maybe last year it was broke or something but it wasn't.
