Funny how all this goes. I live in a sparsely-settled desert area. There's not a lot of anything down here--except bugs.
No ranching, not many folks with little kids.
So, yeah, we have coyotes around. It seems to be close enough to what I'd call a reasonable balance that the occasional calling session keeps the numbers down in adequate fashion. I figure that they compete with me for the blue quail.
Gotta leave a few for entertainment value, listening to their songs at night.
