I never said I was against shooting coyotes, or other predators for that matter. In fact I need to go pick a pelt from the taxidermist right now. All I ever said is that predator control can not, and has not ever been shown to raise the trend line of said predator's prey species, especially under the conditions of the last 20 years.Hey, I thought you were against predator control Lonetree?? Now I'm really confused. What's next? I suppose 1-I is going to shoot a spike elk on the Monroe.------SS
I still have the hide from the first one I shot 20 years ago. I knew it was big, but it was the taxidermist that was really impressed. He told me he had only ever seen a few that big.You will not find any that big here in Utah or anywhere in the west. Most Utah coyotes are about 25 lbs. you will get some about 30 lbs and maybe up to about 40 lbs but not very often. The big ones are back east, not here.
