Like the title says yotes ate the rear out of my deer.. the deer sat in the field for about an hour, when I went to recover it the rear was munched on.

Is the meat still good or should I leave it??

Damn yotes Evil

I’d say your still good ,bud. Just cut around anything they chewed on and don’t let it touch any of the good meat.

You are good, just cut a little extra out where they munched through the hide.

You wasn't gonna eat that part anyway . That was pretty fast as I've seen it but they were laying there thru the night though.

Sometime I wonder about the meat being good, especially if the deer was still alive when the coyotes get at the deer, reason I say that is because of the bacteria getting inot the blood stream and circulating through the meat, any ideas or information on this?

Maybe it was not a yote? I shot a doe this year and dressed her and let her lay until dark so I could continue to hunt and about dark a possum came up and started eating my deer. If I had not seen it i would guessed a yote also.

The reason I figured it was yotes was I was told they start eating the rear end first.
