i was thinking about this, and the fact that this desishion needs to be defended sadens me. wether there is 3 coyote or three packs of them. or wether it cost me my deer this year or not. this land owner is kind enuff not to post there proporty. she is afraid to let her kids out to play during the early morning and late afternoon hours, and has lost a family pet, and had a coyote in her back yard the other evening barking at her. i think as a responcible hunter , and a stewerd to the non hunting comunity that takeing swiff action to take care of this issue for her is the best thing i can do to create a positive relashonship between hunters and the general population of non hunters. i will try to bag me a deer on the other propertys i can hunt, but i am going to manage the coyote pupulation in this area.
