Re: “One Controversial Coyote Hunt Is Canceled, and Another Crops Up

Sadly, when the opposition feels under attack, they resort to misinformation and scare tactics. I have made it quite clear that if someone is to eat meat, that hunting a turkey, deer, duck or other game animal, is much less inhumane than eating factory farmed meat. Protect Our Wildlife does not oppose subsistence hunting if the animal is killed as humanely and quickly as possible, with the utmost respect for the life taken. That is not the case with coyotes.

POW has opposed Mike Covey on various issues related to trapping and we will continue to do so. As a trapper, he is desperate to garner support from the hunting community by convincing them if limits are placed on trapping, a ban on hunting will be next. That would be laughable, if people didn't actually fall for it. {Warning: don't fall for it.}

Wildlife advocates have urged landowners to post their land in protest of poor wildlife policy that allows such depraved activity. Landowners still have the right to allow hunting by permission only, but it keeps the likes of those who participate in killing contests off their land.

Coyote killing contests that offer cash and prizes for the biggest and smallest coyotes is something we should all be able to come together and oppose. It's bad for wildlife and it's bad for Vermont's image.
