Like most things waiting, that is all a matter of where you get your information. If your argument is based on statistics then you need to reevaluate your position because as a guy who works with statistics for a living, I can present the same information to you 12 different ways and each way could convince you of something different and contradictory.

Coyotes are one of the most destructive animals on the planet.

Wolves are responsible for a great reduction in the % of elk being impregnated. So, it isn't only how many they kill, but how many aren't born because of them.

I know it is a touchy subject and I totally respect your position. The above is just mine.

Coyotes eat mostly rabbits, mice and bugs and stuff.
Ever walk around the outside of a coyote den?

Why would anyone want to shoot a coyote anyway?

I only kill what I'm going to eat, and I feel that should be a rule. Crow hunting is ridiculous. Coyotes eat mostly rabbits, mice and bugs and stuff. Deer are a very small part of their diet, and shooting a coyote isn't going to make any significant difference to your game hunting. Same holds true with wolves. Yes, they take deer, but if you do the math, they don't take enough to significantly affect deer hunting.
forgot birds, turkeys and phesants around my parts mostly. I don't have to do the math, wildlife bio's do that for us, I soon hope to be the one who IS in fact doing the math

You think what you please "waiting for a gift" but if noone shot coyotes and they were left to roam free, the deer population would go way down... They kill way more deer than you think.. they do affect deer hunting whether you realize it or not..
its okay to be wrong
