Why do so many hunters/outdoorsmen hate coyotes? I will admit that I don't appreciate it when a pack invades my hunting property and starts spooking/killing deer or other game. And of course livestock/pet depredation is always unacceptable. But when

    When I was a teen, there were plenty of wild quail in Alabama. I haven't seen any in decades. The coyote is not native to Alabama and is probably part of the reason.

    "Coyotes pose no direct threat to humans, but their presence can be detrimental for farmers, ranchers, and wildlife like quail and wild turkey that build their nests on the ground. When coyote damage becomes a problem that cannot be managed preventatively, they must be exterminated. Relocation is not an option, as this only serves to move a nuisance from one area to another."

      Like I said, there's no hate in my heart for coyotes. However, I will kill them on sight because they are a detriment to several native species in my home State of Alabama.

        Where hunters, especially in East Texas, may be shooting themselves in the foot by eliminating coyotes is in controlling wild pigs.

        "I believe that the coyote population in East Texas has positively responded to the increase in pig populations over the past three decades," said Dr. Billy Higginbotham, Texas AgriLife Wildlife Specialist. "Small pigs make ideal food items and there are places in the area river bottoms like the Neches that it is difficult to find coyote scat that does not contain pig hair. Again, the predation level is certainly not sufficient to control the pig population, but they are apparently using the young pigs as a food source extensively."

          I once made a joke about coyotes to a rancher friend in Central Texas, and he made it clear that coyotes were not a laughing matter, because they are a threat to the livelihood of sheep and goat ranchers. He considered their presence to be as serious as any livestock disease, and that would never be the subject of a joke.

              Jimbo, as you can see, I spent a lot of time reading and answering these old posts in my quest to rise to the top of the leader board. They had some lively discussions and for the most part interesting questions and answers. Charlie Elk started his own blog site and is apparently doing well. Hunt-Fish-Trap stayed until the previous site update drove him away. 6Point ocassionly posted in the last couple of years. But Richard is still around and seems to be the only one of the old school to have made it through the latest update.
