|Hunting coyotes is backed by sound science, not ideological principles.|
In 2009, the Arizona Game & Fish Department’s survey reflected a dismal fawn-to-doe pronghorn antelope ratio in Arizona’s Unit 10. After a two year coyote reduction effort we are seeing dramatic results.
If you are a hunter, YOU should thank a predator hunter, because you will have a better chance of filling your freezer and mounting a pronghorn on the wall. If you eat meat, you should thank a predator hunter because they are keeping your cost down. If you are a predator hunter, you need to understand that these efforts sometimes create MORE opportunity, because of the dynamics of the coyotes’ reproduction and social structure. They have to be hunted every year, because the population rebounds so quickly.
