You may be surprised at how quickly the coyotes get on that horse. I wouldnt wait. If you have a normal coyote population, they will come in from miles away and they will clean that critter up in a couple of nights. I was working predator damage control in SW Kansas in the early '90's and a rancher lost a horse and took it out onto the Cimmaron River edge, and the coyotes came in and cleaned that horse up in one night. We called and shot over a hundred coyotes there in the next 30 days. We did not suspect that the population was that heavy.

Thats a good take on the yotes i won a yote challange in southeast colorado last yr down by Kim Colorado, as a team we took 76 yotes in 3 days, killed 39 our first day. That was the most we have ever killed in a 3 day comp. Man i was walkin tall big gun style that weekend

You dun gud, pilgrim. They are thick down there. This horse deal was just down the river from there by Liberal, just before the Cimmaron turns into Oklahoma. No one had noticed that population before then. PM coming.

After field dressing a deer or hog i watch the gut pile and wait for the coyotes to come in. Works pretty good too.

BTW: We had a coyote in the neighborhood killing dogs and cats. That big coyote marked my truck in the driveway: i set three leghold traps in the truck bed with the tailgate up, put out some bad venison in the bed and caught the sucker. My eastern raised neighbor had a fit when i killed that coyote with a crossbow.

Oh yeah, you have hit the docks at Nasty Beef then. I know exactly what you're saying. That coyote ordeal we got into was just 8 miles down the river to the east, where you cross it on 83, there, north of Liberal. Ha! You need a gunner in the large car with you.

Bolt,

Quantrill is correct you need to start at least monitoring the horse right away. And as he said depending on how many Yotes you have in the area depends on how long it will take them to devour the horse. Also consider other animals and birds like turkey vouchers, possums. coons, fox, crows, pigs for sure and any other critter that eats meat.
I also have a Fox Pro and some mouth calls. If you get a call in the future we can give you some pointers on that! But go kill those Yotes!

Maybe Oklahoma coyotes are picky or something; i sometimes see dead hogs and cattle that have not been eaten on by coyotes. For some reason the coyotes just will not touch certain animals.

One ranch i hunt is over run with coyotes that will not touch a dead cow.

Most yotes wont touch a dead cow, hell they kill my calves for sport but dont eat them, but to teach the damn pups how to hunt i have watched them kill a calf play with it the run off to another one.

Don't do it in Kentucky...
