    Default Coyotes & pheasants

    Interesting article from the coyote-hugging anti-hunters at Pheasants Forever.

    The Pheasant farmers think they're good. Ask Cattlemen,sheep and hog farmers and it's a whole different story.

    On the other hand, Orchard owners , want to have the coyotes around as they keep the mouse population down and this prevents a lot of tree damage ie; girdling of the fruit trees under the snow which then kills their trees and profits/lively hood.
    There are several of them that we know of who have always asked us to leave the coyotes alone as they are great mouse killers.
    This is a case where you can't please everyone , win some , loose some !

    I bet a coyote will eat the game bird chicks of any nest they come across.

    Pheasant Hunters supporting coyotes. That's surprising. I'm not sure I agree with them but I admire and respect their open mindedness.

    I didn't know coyotes eat grasshoppers.
    Other than than the logic in the article is completely circular.

    Coyotes will everything they can catch. No brainer.
    I 'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    Used to have wild birds behind the house in the pre yote days . All of a sudden I noticed less bird contact and more than normal feather piles which I could not understand why until it snowed , the tracks in the snow told the tale . It took them a few years to clean out the birds but clean them out they did .
