    Hawgenvy,
    it can be a hard hunt. I was blessed with a large 5 point, large doe, and small doe between the two states last year. First time I had 3 deer in one year. It makes it difficult now with the low numbers, because when I was a kid and started hunting, you counted the amount of deer by the dozens. It was nothing to see 20-30 doe opening day of rifle. Now its a miracle to see that many in an entire season. I do see more bucks now, I dont know if thats related to deer numbers, or experience in picking out a good spot to hunt. Time will tell. If I sat days in a row and not seen any deer, wind was perfect, cold weather, everything was right. But I guess thats why its hunting and not shooting.

    I knew a guy that found a coyote den last summer, he set up a trail cam at the entrance and in a months time counted 20 fawns that the mother brought back to the pups. Can you imagine how big of an impact they are having. A budy of mine, had 2 of his beagles killed in his yard by coyotes. He also shot a doe in archery and hit farther back then he wanted. So he let it set over night, went out bright and early the next morning and it was totally destroyed by coyotes. Winters have been tought here as well.... we will see.
