    Hunting the edge of a swamp this evening when a doe came through acting weird. She wasnt running all out but she never would come to a complete stop although she would slow considerably to look over her shoulder. She had her tail straight up. I decided to pass on her because I thought maybe a buck was pushing her. About a 100 yds behind her was a coyote hot on her trail. I've never seen one chasing a deer before. I was hunting with my muzzleloader trying to complete the triple trophy. Well, big plume of smoke and Arkansas has one less yote. Good hunt but still need to kill one with my muzzleloader and only one more chance to use it.

    You can Muzzleload during any modern gun season.

    Good job taking out a yote!

    I had a coyote chase a doe and a 2 year old 8 point right out in front of my stand last year during muzzeloader season. I didnt shoot the buck he was to small but I heard running coming from behind them and they took off running me knowing it had to be a bigger buck, but it was just a big coyote. I blasted him. He had a beautiful coat thats for sure.

    Had a coyote chase a doe by me in bow season and killed him and about an hour later 5 bucks can through.
