One reason is because we can hunt and kill cougars and control their populations but the wolves are getting out of control in the rockies and all we can do is to sit back and beg the feds to do something while our elk & moose herds are suffering and dissappearing in certain parts of WY, West Yellowstone, MT & Northern Idaho. We need something to be done now, before its to late. Government red tape is taking way to long.
It has taken us 100 years of good wildlife management to build our herds up but only one decade to see the wolves and grizzlies put a serious hurt on them.
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.
