This happened to me last year when I left a deer over night. Seems the ‘yotes are too plentiful to ignore anymore. I think I’ll have to plan on spending the night looking for the deer, if that that be the case.
This deer was shot in a suburb environment. Houses with a few acres of land backing up to a green area. I was afraid I’d have the cops called on me if I started poking around after midnight with a flashlight. Or somebody would shoot at me.
So this place is going to be a strictly morning place from now on. That way, I’ve got all day to look for any wayward critters.
