Shoot all those rats you can, in fact, head to PA and shoot some there.
the landowners i know tell me to shoot the coyotes. i know a guy that shot 3 coyotes. shot one and left in lay in the woods, came back the next morning and shot another feeding on the first and did the same thing the day after.I guess I'll get right to the point. If it isn't eaten then it seems that we don't give it (the animal) and respect because its higher on the food chain ? I think that more respect should be given to the landowners by not leaving dead animals to rot or cause desease for there wells and other domestic animals. What are we saying about leaving dead coyotes for others to feed on ? Doesn't this go against the idea of thinning out the population by fattening up the others ? I am a hunter and to tell my young son that "oh well we'll leave it there in the field " just doesn't seem right. All creatures have a purpose including coyotes when kept in check. I just don't get it hunters say words like "coservation, respect, and ethics" I apologize for any previous posts that ruffled any feathers but these standards should either be followed as preached or not at all. I believe in walking the straight line and it seems that most hunters do also. It just that people seem to use these strong words only when it suits there particular game that the are hunting when it should apply to all game that is hunted.
yea we don't have that here that i know of. there are a number of folks that sell the hides and get pretty good $$ for them. this leads into another conundrum, killing animals for $$. woodchucks go back down the hole and the dirt pushed in over them.No I do not sel them . This is my problem , I love to hunt them but my son comes with me now and I have always taken the coyotes out of the fields when I shoot them but I bring them about five miles to a F&Groad kill site and dispose of them . I do not like the idea of leaving them for the farmer or other coyotes to prospore from.
