I was deer hunting in Butte County, South Dakota and shot a decent 3X3 muley just a little far back. Seemed like a good idea to wait a few hours before following the blood trail (there was snow). So we drove back to town to warm up and eat lunch.
We took up the trail and found the animal about quarter mile from where I shot it. But it was torn apart and eaten by coyotes. Not much left of the buck.
Fire up the grill! Deer hunting IS NOT catch and release.
