We covered this topic before quite awhile ago. IMO this is like letting your son spend nights with Michael Jackson because he pays so well. Sure, you're getting dollars for conservation, but you're also taking the resource you're trying to protect and prostituting it to the highest bidder. This isn't Europe, and we shouldn't be setting aside choice privileges for royalty.
the tag was bought by a local business man. I think it is a good thing, you can still put in for a unit 11 tag and i will be buying some lottery tickets for this years lottery for unit 11. Hey if it helps idaho sheep and someone is willing to pay that much money for one tag, what the heck. i am no longer eligible to apply for sheep in idaho, so the lottery tag is my only shot at this unit.
When calling coyotes, more often than not they will circle on a target they are
coming into and approach from the downwind side. Presumably they do this in
order to align what they smell, with what they are hearing.
This means that you should always have your downwind side camouflaged and have
an open shooting lane. If the area is heavily covered the coyote could come in
take a look and be gone, with you none the wiser.
