When this Earth ends, there will still be Coyotes and Cockroaches. they have survived for hundreds of years and will continue to thrive regardless of the human toll.

As a rule predators seek out the weak (diseased, injured, young, old).

If you want a permanent fix try learning about the ecology of fear as related to mesopredator management.

Had to look up the two dollar words. Found out there is still a lot of theory yet. So in the mean time I say kill em all. They are the invaders.

Just try to understand how this looks to the non-hunting world (not anti-hunting - I don't care what they think). I just think "killing for fun and fellowship" will do more damage to the sport of hunting than anything else. We need more people supporting us, not less.

Hunting IS fun, LOTS of fun. If non-hunters discovered this, they might buy a license and become hunters.

I'm all about hunter gatherings. I've had a bit of luck as well as a few disappointing hunts this week. I look forward to hearing other hunters tell their stories.

BGG,

I understand your concern about the commercialization of hunting. However, I completely disagree with your concern over our predator round up. How many non-hunters contribute to your salary, benefits, wildlife research, or game management practices? How many buy licenses and purchase special tax hunting goods?



As for trying to "understand how this looks to the non-hunting world"... I really do not care. Unless looking for a fight, why would a non-hunter read the this section? As the forum title reads, this section is dedicated to predator hunters.

We should refute anyone who disputes our lawful rights to enjoy this sport. I fought nine, yep, nine, combat tours for our traditional American beliefs. I am not afraid to proclaim my love for the outdoors or the awesome excitement of hunting... small game, fur bearers, large game, migratory birds... it is all wonderful....

Let's cut to the chase, political correctness has been devastating on American values. Has being quiet helped gun rights? (we could open this discussion into so many other areas....)

Me I am just offended the so called non hunters mite and I say mite be offended by something I just mite do that doesn't have a dang thing to do with them. I have hit a point in life I an tired and sick having to tip toe around someone so I won't offend them. It is time I am offended instead. If anyone is offended by this then get over it life is too short as it is.

Its not offense, it's continuing a way of life. I rarely care about 'public opinion' unless it has to do with my right to bear arms... and sadly, our hobby we discuss so passionately here is often in the line of fire (pun intended). It's not political correctness... it's quite literal POLITICS. There are more of them then there are of us.

But beyond that, still... its mismanagement. Do we have too many Yotes? Maybe. Are they the reason for deer decline? Doubtful. Most of the studies citing 'deer in coyote scat' neglect to mention the volume of road kill and (during season) gut piles. If you don't like yotes being the apex predator... well, I'll just continue to say the same things. \:\)
