I no longer do.

Why?
About 3 years ago, I was deer hunting and watching a feeder. A big bunch of hogs showed up including some smaller ones. While I was watching, a coyote ran in, grabbed a piglet and kept going. The other pigs went nuts so I shot the sow. I started thinking.

I like coyotes, rattle snakes, ticks and chiggers more than I do hogs. I’m over run with them. I know that coyotes take fawns and I would rather they didn’t. But, I have a helluva lot more hogs than deer for them to gnaw on.

Actually the only thing I like less than hogs is my ex wife. But that’s another story for another time.

I’ll keep giving the yotes a pass.


Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.

Very cool you got to witness that! I finally killed 7 piglets yesterday that I orphaned a few weeks ago. They look like a bobcat's or coyote's dream come true, but I think most predators are terrified that Momma will fatally injure them. Or, maybe I don't have enough coyotes. I know, that's sacrilege to a sheep or goat rancher.

Fawns and coyotes are not a good mix. I shoot coyotes every chance I have. And all of a sudden, as fawns drop, I am seeing coyotes on the game cams.

My wife hates coyotes way more than I do. Told me today that I need to shoot some of them. Yes dear!

You can have predators, or you can have game animals and game birds and livestock.
They didn't have all those bounties way back then for no reason.
If the economy got any worse, I would imagine that the folks that catch and release
varmints that kill their chickens and such will decide that losing good edible eggs
and chickens and other livestock is no longer an acceptable loss.
Those 3 eggs that possum eats might mean that you miss a meal,
or those vegetables that got ruined could have fed you and your mate

If you ever need help with pasture poodles, there’s nothing I love more than staying up all night calling & killing them.

There is a good reason why predator control is listed by TPW as one of the 7 wildlife management activities.

I had one of my game cameras catch a group of small piglets and 8 min later a coyote had one in his mouth. I would have given him a pass that time had I been there. If I see one and they don't have a pig in their mouth they don't get a pass.

We don't have hogs but we trap and hoot all the coyotes we can, they do real damage to a deer herd.

Seen too many calves, kids, and fawns killed by coyotes.

None get a pass from me.

If I had a hog problem, they would get snared and trapped. All hogs and coyotes get shot on the spot.

See coyote, shoot coyote. That’s me anyway. The grandson says he can’t shoot them because they look like little German shepherds. I may be forced to pay a bounty to get him to shoot ‘em. That boy….

Ask him if he had a German Shepherd that killed baby deer, goats, sheep or calves, would he keep it around?

Coyotes kill fawns, lots of them. Pigs don’t. Shoot all coyotes and pigs.

Coyotes literally kill more fawns than any other single thing. Absolutely never would I ever give a coyote a pass.
