last weekend michigan had an early season on antlerless deer.
I went out to my spot and sat there for a week, not a single deer moved though the area, not even at night.
so today I find my neighbor and buddy whos property I was hunting on is having bad relations because the neighbors coon hound got polinated before they could get it mated up with another licensed hound.
the neighbor is accusing my bud for letting his rotwhiler loose.
so what dose this have to do with deer hunting one might wonder,
Well its like this, when a dog is in heat in the area that wolves and cyotes live, they will congrigate near by and fight for the propigation rights and howl all night long.
I remembered at night the cyotes were howling and schreeching all night. and not just one, it sounded like 50 of them... I mean it felt like I was in the middle of the wheir wolf movie "The Howling"
so this leaves two points one must concider when hunting,
1. if a dog is in heat near by when you are hunting, you may as well forget about seeing any deer if there is even one cyote in the area. that cyote wil be pacing around untill the heat cycle is over. "which is a week or two.
2. if you are the owner of a dog in heat in the area where cyotes are around, keep your k-9 lady locked in a pen that has chain link on all six sides... cyotes will dig under and even climb over fences to do the wild thing.
