    DefaultRusty Will Retrieve ANYTHING! (little graphic)

    Rusty and I decided to go late this morning for a change. We got to the blind around 8:30 and it was heavy overcast with a very light drizzle, winds from the NW about 10 mph.

    I was just getting everything set-up when I caught movement out among the Honker shells. Bang ... bang, bang. Took three rounds of 3" #3s to drop him. At 35 yards I'm actually surprised they were that effective.

    Rusty wasn't quite sure how to grip it ...

    Are you allowed to shoot them? I am pretty sure you can't shoot them here unless it is a life threatening situation.

    I don't know about everyone else but in Iowa the season is open year 'round. There are to many of them and they are losing their fear of man. The neighbor - just across the road - went out to feed her smaller dog at dusk (who lives in a kennel ) and ended up having to lock herself in it because 3 coyotes decided they were darned hungry. She had to wait them out until they finally left.
    Shoot....in Arizona I don't dare let Mya go out after dark for "last call" alone. I have to go out with her with a spotlight. Even then the coyotes poop right by our camper door......bastages!

    Well, if you were my neighbor I would say "Shame on you!"

    At least around here, I applaud Coyotes. They are the only predator that takes on the messo-predators (mid-sized). As far as wildlife are concerned, the messo-predators have a far more damaging effect. Messo predators (such as raccoons, opossums etc htave a far greater effect on waterfowl than Coyotes do, by eating the eggs of waterfowl

    Think about it. Per territory range, you can have one Coyote family, or 50 raccoons/opossums etc., which are avid egg eaters. Coyotes make raccoons feel very unwelcome. Coyotes for the most part eat mice and other smaller critters. Yes, they eat waterfowl, eggs and adults alike. But they are a healthy part of the predator chain.

    There is no doubt that your philosophies about predators match where I worked for nearly 30 years. But times and philosophies change. KBS, (where I worked) back in the 1940-1960's killed every conceivable predator...hawks, owls, raccoons, turtles, (painted and snapper alike), blue jays, coyotes, dogs, cats, snakes, rats, opossums, woodchucks, Etc, etc etc,....

    You (as I did) would have had a lot of fun at KBS dealing with predators. But, times change. A healthy balance of predator/prey relationship brings forth a much healthier wildlife population. Enough said, I could debate for decades...
