North Dakota May Post $100 Coyote Bounty
North Dakota's coyote population is growing and the state is considering upping the bounty to $100 for any hunter. The Bismark Tribune has the full story.
The bounties would be paid for with money taken from a state Game and Fish Department fund that pays for professional hunters who help with coyote problems. Bowman state Sen. Bill Bowman said increasing coyote numbers could cause a spring crisis. Bowman said deer numbers are down, and coyotes will be hunting livestock instead, at a time when cattle prices are good.
