Our first discovery was a fresh(ish) black-tail deer carcass. I am saying fresh to be 1-2 weeks old. Our first sign of this was coyote scat placed on some of the bones. Next we found more coyote scat, and than some of the stomach rumen. After widening our search of the area, we found the rest of the deer. We could not tell what had killed the deer though looking at it's teeth, many of them were old and broken or falling out. It was a female. The nose of the deer was chewed off. Another observation from the group was that 2-3 ribs had been chewed off at the rump end of the deer. This could have been where the coyote had accessed the internal organs.
We also found coyote, robin, deer sign, brush-rabbit sign, beaver, nutria scat, more bones and fur, bird kill sign.
