I have seen none while hunting this year.Ive been most weekends,and several other days.Cant remember this ever happening.Id like to think the yotes are gone,but know its not true.

I do miss seeing the Bobcats and foxes,which get a free pass on my place,just enjoying seeing them.

Anyone else seeing less predators this year?

We seldom see any predators on my place. This year, me and my brother let a gray fox walk. It was cool to watch.

On trail-camera through most of the season, absolutely. Could hardly buy a yote picture. Then all of a sudden, starting in early December, I started getting a ton of coyote pictures. Have no idea why the sudden change.

My bobcat population seems pretty stable year to year. I get about a dozen bobcat pictures per year.

I got this one earlier this month while deer hunting. She is the only one I've seen while hunting, I've heard several in the early morning before day light and I've seen several while driving.

I've seen three coyotes this year while deer hunting, managed to kill two of them, one female and the male in the pic below. A good friend of mine witnessed three coyotes running the crap out of two big does and one fawn yesterday morning, but didn't manage to kill any of the yotes. He said one of the big does was limping pretty bad on her back leg, but still managed to get away. He also said that was the first time in his twenty year hunting career that he had actually witnessed coyotes in all out pursuit of deer.

One of my places have to many yotes I think.i have seen almost as many yotes as deer. I still hunted in the wet weather this morning, and saw movement coming towards me. I got to full draw with the yote a mere 7 yds from before it smelled me and bolted. Times like that made me wish I was rifle huntin.

I've seen 3 coyotes. I was desperately trying for a shot on 1 but he was running at 300yds and I never could get the crosshairs on him enough for a shot and he never stopped.

3 is about normal for where I hunt too for a season.

I rarely see a bobcat.

Saw two coyotes, kiiled one and saw one nice bobcat. Watched him for about 10-minutes. He was trying to ambush a chipmunk.
