I saw three jakes run off a sneaking coyote one day.Saturday evening I was hunting and had seen a buttonhead and a decent 8 point and watched them go to a food source just out of sight. A short while later I hear a ruckus and here comes 7 mature hens. They go up and proceed to run off the deer. The 8 just left, but the button stopped 75 yards away and was throwing his head around like a racehorse. Here come the hens right to him, but he holds his ground. When the lead hen gets about 10 yards away, she takes off flying right at his head. He tore off to the next county. I wish the cold wouldn’t have killed my camera battery because it would have been great footage.
Don’t tell me they won’t scare deer. These were very intentional about it, and that’s not the first time it’s happened either. Then they proceeded to clean all of the dead branches off the trees as they went up to roost 75 yards in front of me. Needless to say, I didn’t see another deer.
yep, they hear that scratching and know good vittles await.I shot my 9 point buck Saturday shortly after posting about the racket a group of turkeys were making. As I type this, I got 5 turkeys scratching in the leaves at about 75 yards. Maybe they’ll bring in another buck.
