Like I said in the beginning, I dont know where I went wrong in my first post?? I had no idea things were going to turn out that way. I just figured it was like any other forum. If they want all there members to abide by all there stupid little rules or whatever, they need to be a little more specific with everything. They seem to set you up to look like a fool, and they get a kick out of it. Ridiculous....
Jeez, I dont think I've seen even an 1/4 of the yotes that guys shot!! That guy needs to go over to Predatormasters and share his knowledge. I understand the guy that runs the site pays for it all and what not, but you still dont need to be an a** about it. Just the way I feel.
25 06 Predators kill lots of game and we have gotten rid of many of the larger predators that would otherwise control the coyote population. Here in SE Idaho some places are over-run with coyotes and the Department of Fish & Game shoot them with semi-auto shotguns (buckshot) out of a helicopter. After reading the Coyotegod thread I can't believe people think that way about them. I understand all animals have there place here (including wolves) but putting predators on a pedastool like that? Come on!
I myself have started calling them and will shoot all I can find!!!!!!!!
I know what you mean. The antelope fawn mortality rate in central and southern Oregon is like 90-95% because of them dang dogs. No wonder it takes 15 years to draw a frickin antelope tag in Oregon. Cuz all the coyotes eat them. Coyotes are a predator/varmint and always will be. They should be treated as such, and I do [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] We definately have no shortage of them up this way. I was told about a year or two ago that a helicopter and govt guy went up this big canyon about 20 miles from my house and shot around 150 in a couple days. What a job huh!!
wonder how they'd feel if they knew how we do it over here? run em with hounds till they pop out in a field and blast em with 4 buck from 10ga's. NO hide left. theres no respect for the yote here. a trail cam was set up last spring outside a den with pups. in 30 days, 28 fawns and tons of small game were dragged into the den. thats just one mama....
and not to hijack but its along the same lines, the cat population is also taking a huge toll on what little game we have left here..... both need dealt with.
