i often hunt on a very large piece of tightly controlled federal property. Hunters must be off the range NLT than one hour after sunset. Sometimes that does not leave time to drag a pig or deer out of the woods. A few times i have left field dressed deer and hogs overnight on that property.
If it becomes necessary to temporarily abandon an animal; my coat is thrown over the animal and i also urinate on the animal. Never had a kill disturbed after doing that.
Try setting up on the gutpile after field dressing an animal. i've killed a lot of coyotes that way.
