Re: Dog Hunters
We have a metric ton of dog hunters in Wisconsin, they can run bear, racoon, bobcat ,wolf and coyote, woops did I just type wolf?
Anyway they do a good job of controlling predators, I just wish they would shoot more bear, rather than being fussy trying to get a big one. We have lots of bear.
I have run coyotes with some of the locals and they do run some private land with permission and on occasion they get on privte that they are to stay off of. When ever that happens they are quick to catch them at the first opportunity, and/or make contact with the owner and ask to get them if they are hung-up in that section.
The are very humble and non confrontational, but on the flip side I have seen some groups of hound hunters that have less manners then there dogs and think they have a birth right to every pc of land in the country. They are the guys who ruin it for the responsible ones. My local dog hunting groups are cooperative to the point that they all have established areas that they don't overlap. This is great for accountability.
