Duluth Deer Parts

Has anyone else noticed deer parts along Seven Bridges Road? You know where they close the road in the winter, and people walk and ski and snowmobile and run dogs? Near the barrier at the bottom, and in the woods next to Smiley’s, my dog is always coming up with a spine or a leg or a hunk of pelvis. What’s up with that? Do poachers dump the parts they don’t want there? Do old deer go there to die?

It's probably legal hunters behaving badly by dumping carcasses in the fall while the road is still open (and conveniently accessible).  The recent melt most likely exposed the carcasses making them dog accessible.  Ten years ago when my dog was a pup I was wondering the same thing when a lady who had been walking her dogs there for years told me that it has always been like that.  She told me to hang the parts in the trees so the dogs can't get to em and make a mess.  I am sure the birds appreciate that.

I once took a deer leg from the dog and hung it in a tree, but it was too late. She threw up for two days, and on the third day, a hoof came up. She felt better after that.

There are coyotes and I have seen one wolf on Hawk's Ridge.

Hunters dump carcasses all over the place in Duluth, on the outskirts. It doesn't bother me so much, but I wish they'd pull them further in the woods so there wasn't so much risk of someone hitting a coyote/wolf/eagle with a car.

I never knew that pileated woodpeckers ate that sort of meat til I saw one poke its head from inside one one time.

Yes, I've seen deer parts along Seven Bridges Road for years.  I too think it's hunters being lazy and stupid.  While a deer carcass here and there will simply feed hungry wild critters, dumping scores of them within the city limits is just plain stupid.  There's a public health reason for not wanting piles of corpses in your city parks.  I don't know why these hunters can't figure that out.

It's not hunters on Seven Bridges, it's wolves.  There is sign all over back there.  Get off the road and you'll see it.

Hi Andy,  I'm pretty sure what we're seeing is carcasses dumped by hunters.  However, I also did see a wolf kill in that area (between Amity Creek Trail and Skyline Pkwy), so I agree there are wolves up there.

I'm thinking hunters, too, since it seems like the carnage is always right next to the road or the snowmobile trail.

All off the carcasses I see in the area have large chunks of hide attached. Don't hunters usually remove the hide?

If large portions of hide are still attached then it is probably not the handywork of hunters or poachers.  Not if what they are after is meat anyway.  Wolves were seen and photo'd last year (around this time) along Superior St around 60th Ave E.

There was a wolf/dog/coyote carcass off to the side of the road last year, just past the last bridge going up the hill towards Hawk ridge.  I noticed it while running in the area. I did not feel like touching it and just watched it slowly decompose over the course of a few months.

A pal told me yesterday that he saw a wolf kill on Amity Creek last year, though he can't be sure it wasn't a coyote kill. Maybe the source of the carcasses is both - hunters dumping and wolves or coyotes leaving behind the bones.

In Detroit Lakes, coyotes are reportedly attacking pets.

Yeah, the Star Tribune has been reporting that some guys in the legislature want to reinstate a bounty on coyotes, even though all the wildlife experts keep telling them it won't work and it's a waste of money.

I think what you are seeing are deer that have been killed by coyotes or wolves (I have seen wolves on Hawks Ridge).  Also snow mobiles may have hit a deer or two as they go up Amity Creek trail or down Seven Bridges Road.  I doubt the deer are dumped by hunters.  They would have to carry the carcass in and they aren't going to do that!

Why do I always find deer legs hanging in trees at Hawk Ridge?  Just last week I found a deer leg hanging and a dead fox draped over a branch all in the same day.

Same thing in West Duluth, all the time.



This one looks like my bomber hat, but it isn't.

We dog owners hang deer parts in trees once we wrestle them away from our dogs. If you chuck it into the woods, the dog just goes and gets it again.

That makes sense, it's just weird that it's always a leg, never a carcass nearby.

It sounds like some sort of Ewok hunting grounds.

I've wondered the same thing, Jake. Why always legs and the occasional spine? Why never a head? I don't think wolves are taking the heads home to stick on the wall.

I found this deer head in a tree out by Martin Road a couple years ago.

Deer will walk the snow packed trails for ease of travel, such as snowmobile trails, hiking trails and ski trails. Wolves and coyotes know this. And take advantage of this opportunity to feed on their prey. Although, deer carcasses are regularly discarded here and there.

Barrett, that is quite a photo. I wonder what the story is with the orange tape. It seems like some sort of horrible warning posted by a rival deer gang. 

Anyway, I'm glad I've only ever had to hang a leg.
