A Doe, A Deer, A Female Deer (Weekend Wildlife Reborn)

So.... Last weekend 4thPower Bravo discovered a dead doe in the creek.  A buddy of mine came over and helped me haul it out. When we did, we discovered it had a hole all the way through it.  Now I'm no expert but it certainly didn't look like it came from a blackpowder firearm (rifle hunting not legal in IL) nor was the body decomposed enough for the blackpowder season which was two and a half weeks before. CYOA time, I called DNR.  After some phone tag, the conservation officer told me from my description it sounded like a rifle shot and that they'ld include our area in their patrols.  Other than that I was free to dispose of the carcass as I saw fit.

Got the 4-wheeler prepped and took it out to the woods w/ the wildlife camera and went to check on it this evening when I got back from the show.  It had been mostly untouched which is odd.  Guess the coyote pack has moved on.

The batteries were still good so I swapped the cards and left it out there.  We'll see what happens over the next week.
