I think hear in my area the overpopulation of black bears are the biggest problem with fawn mortality. Most of our deer hunters wont shoot bears. Most of them tell me that bear meat tastes bad. I offer to give them some of mine and tell them how to properly handle a bear after they get one. I have had some change their minds after eating some of my bear meat.

Bear meat is very good table fare with reasonable care taken during cleaning and processing. I try to get most of the fat trimmed well.

I think we lost a young goat a few months back. I didn't actually see the remains. We got some steep brushy land that is hard to cover on foot. We definitely got black bears. not sure what killed it.

I found a small dead fawn yesterday just about the size I had seen the doe with last week. It was on the small size compared to the other fawns here. She had a late birth it seems or it is a runt of sorts.

Had a coyote kill a yearling ram early yesterday morning. Left the carcass for the buzzards in hopes of drawing some attention. Glassed over the kill site from about 350 yards yesterday evening and low and behold there was wylie coyote having a snack. I made an attempt to stalk with in shooting distance but the cover was sparse, and wylie soon lost interest and got tired of chasing the buzzards. Followed him for about a mile, but could never make any ground due to only having the sparse cover of a few cholla cactus here and there. Well, he finally got over a hill and I knew I wasn't going to make the ground up fast enough to keep up so I let him go. Besides I had an idea of where he was going. Made a run around that pasture this morning and found the crossing where he went out last night, as well as another he has been using. Coyotes, and sheep, the work never ends.

Caught the ram killer, now to catch the male. Her repro tract shows she had 4 pups. Summer coyotes down here are ugly. hahaha

She looks to be in bad shape.

Yeah, she was pretty rough. Cost of raising puts when it's really hot and dry. The last (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) I caught with pups was thin like this, although this one had a lot more hair rubbed off. Caught the on it this pic this morning. She was not raising any pups and was in much better shape.

Nursing pups is very demanding on the females in areas that has limited food sources as well as being drained physically from the heat, little water and lack of adequate nutrition. These conditions many times are responsible for domestic kills since they are easy prey.
