Lone Coyote Tries to Take Down Doe, Stopped Short by Young Hunter [VIDEO]

coyote tries to take down a doe

Do you think a deer can defend itself when a coyote tries to taking it down?

Usually when we think of coyote attacks we think of a pack grouping up on a single deer, or at least a more feeble deer. It’s not very often that we see a single coyote try to take down a doe, but that is exactly what was caught on camera as the Natural Born TV series was filming.

Check out what happened in the clip below.

The doe actually seemed pretty capable of defending herself in this one-on-one situation. Though it seems likely that had the fight continued, the stamina and aggressiveness of the coyote would have prevailed.

Luckily for this doe, the young hunter stepped in and downed the coyote with a really great shot on a quickly moving target.

Looks like someone has been spending some time on the range.
