Re: Nova Scotia Program to Reduce Aggressive Coyote Behaviou

It is a bonus for us trappers but since the trapper numbers are very low I think it is just a political smoke and mirrors show because there is no way we are going to make that big of an impact to change coyote behaviour. Open it up to all hunters and maybe we're on to something or allow rifles to be used year round at a registered site.

Re: Nova Scotia Program to Reduce Aggressive Coyote Behaviou

I read your post and I will give you my 2 cents. we have a coyote problem hear were I live they are almost out of control. there are no trappers left thanks to the tree huggers the coyotes here have evolved over the last 25yrs. from a very wild on the run the min. you seen them to todays dog that has adapted to humans unbelievably there not scared of humans they come rate in our yards they will gladly eat your cats small dogs and we have had insedents were they thought about small kids the last one wasnt that small he was 12yrs. old rate in the barn yard.yrs ago you would see 1or2 coyots now I have seen 6to8 in hunting packs. farmers in our area are losing new born calfs sheep at a alarming rate. The gov. put a 25.00 bounty on them last fall so you would think that would put a big dent in the population NOT we can shoot them yr. round they are still a problem. my boys shot around 60 in our area between nov. hunting and feb. but I walk out side at dusk rate now and you can hear them howling in every direction. mange and local trappers use to control them when they got thick, now there are no trappers and mange dosnt seem to slow them at all.My advise to your province keep there numbers down,dont let them get out of hand because when they do you will have one hell of a problem.
