Re: “Up to Here in Deer: As Fewer Vermonters Hunt, the Growing Herd Is Becoming a Problem

Lucas,
1) The information that was put together during this past legislative session about what is happening in Vermont related to coyote killing was a bipartisan effort. Republicans, Democrats, Independents were all involved. Multi-generation Vermonters were also involved. What does political party have to do with wanting to treat wildlife humanely? This is something every civilized person should be supporting.

2) We have facts and data if you cared to look. The reason thrill-killing is even an issue is because so many of those thrill-killers post incredibly graphic photos and videos online. Just because you don't personally know poachers and thrill-killers does not mean they do not exist. Look at the evidence. If you used your real name, I could ask someone to send it to you.

3) I am home. You do not speak for all Vermonters, hunters, or even Republicans. Please be a little more respectful.

Re: “Up to Here in Deer: As Fewer Vermonters Hunt, the Growing Herd Is Becoming a Problem

People will continue to post their land as long as the state continues to support thrill-killing and the unethical individuals who call themselves "hunters," but who simply want to use wildlife as live targets. Few, if any, landowners want to see a hunter's hounds terrorizing a mother bear and her two-month-old cubs. No one wants to see a hunter's hounds mauling a coyote to death in an activity that looks more like illegal dogfighting than hunting. No one wants to hear rapid-fire shooting on their property late at night or run into a stranger carrying a duffle bag full of weapons while walking in the woods on their own property (we have experienced both). The majority of people who hunt for food are respectful, but even many of them will take shots at other animals while hunting deer or turkey, forgetting that some of us want to keep these other animals on our land. For example, work hard to maintain our stable coyote pack so they can keep our rodent populations in check and prevent other coyotes from moving into the territory. Rodents are devastating to young fruit trees and vegetable crops. While coyotes eat mostly rodents, they are opportunistic hunters so when they are present, they also keep deer on the move and they will kill any weak or injured deer, which helps keep the herd healthy. Their presence alone prevents deer from stopping for too long in one place and devastating a crop.
