Thank you! Exactly my point, I know why we have to defend ourselves from many things no matter where you live.

Problem is that too many game commissions listen to people like this and of course we sure don't want to offend tax payers even thought they don't have any expertise in the subject.

I worked for a State Forestry agency for 37 years and you wouldn't believe the number of people I ran into that had opinions and answers with no facts to back them up.

Several members took offense to you calling coyote hunters a-holes myself included. We want defend out pets, livestock and family just like you.

I hunt because I like to hunt, it gives me enjoyment an challenge to go out in the woods and try to kill an animal whether it be a deer, rabbit, squirrel, turkey, coyote, coon, bear, wolf whatever, I don't need to do this as many of these animals aren't doing me any harm and I can afford to go to the local grocery and buy food, but I still hunt because I enjoy it and I enjoy eating wild game. As far as wolves go I'd far rather shoot a wolf than a coyote, I will add a couple picks to show you why, do some research and you will find this a common occurrence in wolf country.
You live in a remote are so its okay you must do what you have to that dosent mean your an ******* I live in a city and the only reason I hunt is beacuase you cant get delicious venison or roasted duck or quail soup or bbqed wild hog they are delicious! But for a city folk to kill a coyote? For what? Thats my point.

Coyotes are a pain, kill livestock, pets, etc. What difference is there in who does the killing? If a rancher or farmer is too busy to spend all day hunting them, its not ok for a for someone else to hunt for them? You make no sense.

I think another point you may be missing is that coyotes do effect you in the city. When a farmer loses livestock that is a loss to his business. Therefore for the cost to do business just went up. That being said the price of goods that farmers provide such as food and clothing in the store you shop in go up. It's the same as when some one steals off the shelf. Price of business just went up. So predators do effect you in an indirect way.

You live in the city and you like to hunt. Other people live in the city and like to hunt also. If the coyotes are killing the game where they like to hunt, or posing a threat to their hunting dogs, they might like to hunt coyotes too.

I like to hunt and I spend a lot of time scouting, teh couple months befoe hunting season, unlike many of the more casual city hunters who like to just plop in a stand a few times a season. It lets me get to knwo different areas really well, maximize my awareness of where the deer actually are, and get an idea of what;s going on in the woods where I hunt. Finding lots of scattered turkey bones and feathers, fawn skeletons, as well as a dog skeleton with a tracking collar on it and coyote tracks and scat, tells me that the 'yotes are in need of a thinning or no one is going to have a good hunting season.

It is part of game management, which responsible hunters are a part of. So, those like minded hunters who spend more time in teh woods scouting pick up the slack and try to manage to increase the game population so city folks and country folks alike can enjoy hunting. I'd welcome more city folks to come get in the woods and learn them, and help thin out the 'yotes while they're here, instead of showing up on opening day and crashing through the perfect site I scouted out and and cleared shooting lanes in, two months prior. And they stunk like cigarettes. They never knew I was there, but all the deer in the woods knew they walked through that morning.

Down here, hogs are another problem species. So, more trips into the woods also increases my chances of putting meat on the table in the form of pork.

I'm bummed that I'm not hunting this year, because I transfer to teh other coast right at the opening of the season. And I haven't scouted the area in the new state. So, next year I'll have new woods to get to know.
