It’s been a while and it’s good to be back. The holiday season was busy but enjoyable. Great food and great family. I hope you were just as blessed.
Last week I took Kory out for her first coyote hunt. We got skunked but had a good time being in the boonies together.
Some people question predator hunting as it yields only fur and no meat. I have a few arguments in favor of predator hunting.
- Killing an animal for its meat is not ethically superior to killing an animal for its fur. Furs sold are income that puts food on the table, just as meat taken puts food on the table.
- Predators are taught to be afraid of humans. Studies show time and time again that when predators are not hunted they lose their fear of humans. As a result pets, livestock and even humans are injured and killed.
- Humans are a part of the environment and the food chain, not apart from it.
