So, any particular reason you like to shoot animals that are just mindin their own business....? Was it stalking your livestock? Stalking your kids? You gonna eat her? Or do you just have some bloodlust for killin creatures? Just curious as to why folks like shootin' 'yotes' so much, and you didn't really address it in your post under "the hunt" forum...
How exactly is a 'yote' supposed to get away when you're hundreds of yards away with a rifle? It's not like you're chasing it down with a spear, or heck even a bow, where it would have some realistic chance of survival... I'm frankly unimpressed when 'men' go out and blast 'yotes' or other 'rodents', without so much as placing themselves in any danger whatsoever (the biggest risk is maybe you'll catch a cold or twist your ankle or nick your gun) and think they've accomplished some feat...
How exactly is this a 'hunt?' May as well been a video game... Long story short: You saw a coyote. Grabbed your rifle. Stepped off your back porch. Shot a few times. Killed it. Congrats....
I cannot properly put into words how ignorant you sound, with those statements and emotional outbursts.
This is the hunting forum; not the "love all animals because they're cuddly" forum.
Do you get this angry when some one throws away a blank piece of paper? A happy tree was murdered
to produce it.
As DaveinWoodland said - Many parts of this country have enormous populations of coyotes. Humans have created artificial food chains, that create an excess of food for predators. That excess of food leads to an excess of predators, and lots of bored animals. Bored animals kill things for fun, burrow into burrow into things they shouldn't, and harass livestock and wildlife.
Until the population of the U.S. wakes up, and starts caring for the environment and its native inhabitants; coyote populations must be controlled with high-speed lead injections.
It's a problem humans created. It's a problem humans are attempting to control.
