Greenwood County, Kansas
Some woods with open plains and dried up creek bed
OBSERVED: I was archery hunting for deer and a coyote gave me an opportunity that sent it off with my arrow in his rib. So, off i went to retrieve my arrow. the blood trail was very sparse. In order to follow it i had to crouch over crossing the fence i was on neighbors land tracking a wounded animal i wasn't concerned I found my arrow then kept trailing. I then got a feeling of being watched in my perifial vision i saw a dark brown figure squatting 15 feet in a tree. we met eyes at the same time. the beast was maybe 60 yards away. it then hung by its front appendages, and dropped landing on its rear appendages (never saw hands or feet) maybe 3 or 4 feet in height the beast scurried to the dried up creek and vanished. it dissapered in the tall grass, making alot of noise and not moving very fast.
things: I wasn't scared but curious maybe
cause i could sense it was scared. having the coyote traveling in
front of me wounded it might have thought i was also a coyote since i was
bent over face one foot from ground carrying a bow completely camoed out
with face paint and gloves. wet ground made it quite to walk on.
it had no idea i was there till i leaned up to peer at the dark "blob"
in the tree.
of Witness: trailing a blood
trail of an arrow hit coyote. hunting deer during deer season.
of Creature: 3-4 feet tall dark
brown. long thick coat. arms maybe just as long as body head to toe. 40-60lbs
not very fast on the ground or very quite until it hit the dried up creek
bed then it disappeared.
Notes: i take
grave detail in being scent free and super quite I've walked up face to
face with lots of animals usually deer i have no clue what the animal in
(Informational or Encounter History in the General Area) Notes:
nope, dont hunt there very often its a long walk back there and is inaccessible
even by quad runner
