Pocket Ninja: They're completely ineffective, however, as long-term population control measures, a fact that's been proven time and time again.
brerrabbit: Coyotes really don't cause much in the way of problems unless you have chickens or small pets that run loose. They might bag a lamb once in a while, but that's what sheepdogs are for if you are making a living off of sheep.
sammyk: $25? Cheap bastards! I grew up in Wyoming. I got $125 a hide from ranchers in the 80's.
MythDragon: How much for falmer ears?
Rev.K: I'm no hunter, but $25 seems a pretty low price to me.
ManateeGag: Just deploy a few road runners. that should cull the population some.
unyon: FTFA: The increase in the coyote population has had ripple effects, Peifer said. Responding to the increase in predators, deer herds have taken refuge in rural developments in places like Blooming Grove and Pine Ridge. By culling the coyote population, Peifer said, residents may be able to reduce the number of deer in their communities.The logic of dealing with your deer problem by reducing the number of predators is mind-boggling.
Giltric: I was going to invest in a 10k Night Force scope just for coyote plinking.
unyon: The logic of dealing with your deer problem by reducing the number of predators is mind-boggling.
HeadLever: unyon: The logic of dealing with your deer problem by reducing the number of predators is mind-boggling.It is not about the number of deer, but thier location.
MemeSlave: You know that the more pressure the pack is under, the faster they breed, right?How about picking up your trash and keeping your cats inside? Paintball guns are good as well. The trick is to get them to go be coyotes somewhere else.
Old_Chief_Scott: The real problem is that these coyotes don't have any real fear of man or of man's constructs. Every couple of years I get one or two that start hanging around my back fence. Since I live in a city a firearm is not an option, so I get out the ol' Wrist Rocket (tm) slingshot and ping them on the hindquarters. You would be surprised how far a coyote can jump into the air from a sitting position.
kgf: and this is the only valid reason for hunting them - teach them to fear humans so they won't be so likely to come into neighborhoods.
jayhawk88: The main reason was that about 70 percent of a coyote population has to be removed annually in order to cause a population decline.Damn. You could draft every man, woman, and child in the state of Kansas to hunting coyotes the entire summer and probably not kill 70% of them.
