curiosity gutted the coyote

so I have this friend, the hardest-headed fellow you would ever want to meet. he's one of those that believes the PGC stocked the coyotes and they're wiping out the deer herd.

I remember talking with Arnie Hayden (sp?) years ago and he said studies on the stomach contents of coyotes revealed mostly raccoon during certain times of the year. he caulked it up to road kill, which was actually where he thought coyote also got most of their deer.

so I always check stomach contents on my yotes, albeit the few I catch

does any one else check coyote stomach content for their own knowledge? what have you found? looking for more evidence to bop my friend upside the head

as waylon would say,
dont go taking me seriously
cause i poked at you in fun

Re: curiosity gutted the coyote

7 coyote stomachs opened in November. No kidding they were jammed packed with deer suet, each one.

They are deer eating machines, especially when packed up.

During a helicopter coyote shoot, agents observed a 28 lb yote fatally injure a 200 lb mule deer buck. What the heck could a 40-50 lb eastern brushwolf do?

The difference between dreamers and achievers is action.
One try is worth a thousand guesses.
