Well, now that deer season is winding down and I am trying to back into some routine as my wife recovers, I am looking past deer season (what's left of it) it's time to turn hunting into pest control. The whole upstate NY area has been plagued with coyotes on a massive scale. There has even been a couple of articles in the local paper on the subject. Ten days ago I took the carcass of a roadkilled deer (was in good shape except for two busted legs and the .223 hole in the skull where the local deputy dispatched it) that I butchered. This is what it looked like only three days later. I took the picture on Thanksgiving morning. I also caught this coyote going by on camera earlier that same morning. The deer had been dragged about 20 yards from where I had left it. Season on coyotes is open until the end of March. Between ruffed grouse and coyotes, I will be hunting for quite a while.
