Coyotes aren't ethical.....

That's one of the most idiotic things I've read in a while. They are a predator, no different than a cougar or other predators.  The fact that so many obviously don't give a darn about a fast, ethical kill with regard to animals like coyotes is just disgusting and doesn't speak well of our sport.  I have a relative that is a big cattle rancher.  He has seen coyotes eating half born calves as the cow giving birth helplessly freaks out.  It's nature at work. It's not always pretty, but a coyote will try to survive.  "Ethics" don't play a roll in how a coyote survives and to try to say that any animal doesn't deserve an ethical kill is pretty crappy.  I understand that some folks may take a more iffy shot on a coyote and not feel as bad if it ends up being a bad shot. I certainly hope anyone that does that would dispatch the animal as quickly as possible after such a shot though.

Incidentally, as unclassified wildlife, it's legal to shoot them with an air gun.

Did I hurt your liberal view on an ethical coyote ? Too me, coyotes are worthless vermin that need to be shot and killed, period. I lived in eastern Washington for nearly 17 years and have seen my fair share of what coyotes do to any and all animals. You're preaching' to the wrong guy. I hate coyotes....Coyotes aren't ethical.

Our donkey and cows will crush the hips of coyotes which will then crawl under the closest bin. Then they stand around it for hours watching the coyote suffer. These cows don't care how long it suffers dryside. Hours and hours the cows watch it suffer. :drool:

Can you take your donkey and cows into the Manson unit and crush some coyotes and cougars there?

Who said coyote hunting is a sport? It's like spraying for bugs to me.

Thinking there is anything liberal about me is laughable. I STILL live in eastern WA and shoot coyotes on a regular basis. I'm the CEO of a decent sized company, a self made multi-millionaire and probably one of the most conservative people you could ever meet.  I just happen to believe that if you are hunting anything, whether you call it a sport or vermin control, every animal deserves as fast and ethical of a kill as you can deliver. I can guarantee the next time the bunny huggers want to wage a campaign you will see copies of posts from forums like this where "hunters" are bragging about how they like to "whack em and stack em" and not worry about clean, ethical kills.

Your post is inappropriate. If you can't have a conversation with other hunters without attacking them, then don't post. Also your language is inappropriate.

I do not see any problems with language here, but am more tolerant than some other moderators.  IMO saying something is idiotic is not a personal attack.  I might be overruled. 

However, I actually agree with dryside that any animal we kill deserves a quick death, animals don't have a choice to follow human "ethics", we do.  When I squish a spider, I don't pull its legs off first.... This may cloud my judgement here.

I've seen that since posting, the moderator report was not open when I looked.  I'm always a little behind on these.   ;)

We should always strive to do the "right" thing, some situations might not matter so much if we don't get it done.....   :rolleyes:

Every time I hear my friends talk about "why they hunt coyotes" I'm reminded of the Steve Rinella podcasts where he's had the wildlife historian, Dan Flores, on his show.

Found this interview with him in a more easily consumed media...

I honestly try to treat all animals with respect when dispatching them.  But as mentioned I will take “poor shots” at them and other vermin such as starlings.  I do however follow up as quickly as possible.   I’m not into torture.

What about that coyote you dispatched a few years back with your bow, wasn't that a 1 shot kill?

I'm a big, very right leaning redneck and said nothing about, ME, saying wounding or maiming a coyote is this or that. Coyotes aren't ethical, is what I said.

What a person does for a living means zilch to me. Having lots of money means zilch to me. Being a CEO means zilch to me. I guess that means you know more, than most on this site, because of your statement. Good Luck on that one.

Oh ya, 99% are.  I just know I’d take a shot on a yote I wouldn’t on a deer or other big game species.   Basically I’m protecting my own....

The fact remains that most humans dish out "compassion" to other creatures in direct proportion to how close they resemble humans in looks and behavior. Nobody loses much sleep over chemically burning bacteria to death with CL2. They have feelings too. lol

I have had individuals intend to show up to shoot prairie dogs or rockchucks w/ball ammo or 22LR standard velocity solid point.   Not with me they are not.  I have no problem with killing either species, but I have a big problem with intentionally shooting a round that in too many cases results in maiming them.  If a person doesn't recognize the difference then I don't want anything to do with them, much less care to hunt/varmint shoot with them.

I, myself have never gone out hunting vermin, with the intention of just wounding it, or any other vermin. I don't want any hunted animal to suffer, ever.

I see no value in this thread continuing.

My recommendation would be to have folks quit arguing a point that is best left agreeing to disagree.
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
-Ronald Reagan
