I was more than a little disturbed to read the other day this disturbing little footnote in history.

PORTLAND, Ore. – An animal-rights group and the organizer of an annual coyote-killing contest in southeast Oregon have settled competing lawsuits with an agreement that there will be no more hunting contests.
Coyotes are classified as predatory animals under Oregon law, and there are no limits on killing them.
Faced with that reality, the Animal Legal Defense Fund sued on the grounds that the contest violated anti-gambling laws.
Organizer Duane Freilino said Friday he agreed to the contest-ending settlement because he ran out of money to pay attorneys.
Stephen Wells, executive director of the animal-right group, says the agreement means hundreds of coyotes can live peacefully in the wilderness.
Freilino said he started the contest almost a decade ago to increase winter tourism in the sparsely populated region and to help ranchers by reducing coyote numbers before calving season.
Well folks I was inspired to snub the “anti’s” on this one. Especially in light of the fact that HSUS is here in Maine trying to steal my Bear Hunt using lies, deception, and half-truths to get the uninformed to back them. On November 4th we are facing the loss of our bear hunting tradition in Maine under the guise of more SPORTSMAN-like euphemistic terms like fair chase/stalking/still hunting. The anti-group is trying to repeal our right to hunt over bait, use dogs , and to legsnare/trap. (Old school toothy bear traps are illegal and have not been used in decades.) They have made no bones that if they can steal the bear hunt from us they are after an end to all hunting…and the consumptive use of all animals. So first bear hunting goes , and eventually farming.
In direct response to the events in Oregon, and to HSUS interfering in hunting here. I am hosting the first of it’s kind……FOREVER 24/7/365 COYOTE EXTERMINATION CONTEST.
The rules are simple……….KILL AS MANY COYOTES AS YOU CAN …..WHEN AND WHERE YOU CAN…24/7/365!! This contest has no end date, and costs nothing to enter so it cannot violate any gambling laws.
One, the deer and small critters need a break here in Maine. Two, they are an invasive species not natural to this or any area now that they have been hybridized with dogs and wolves. THIS IS A GENETIC FACT HERE IN MAINE!!
The cute little 35 lb. coyote of the great plains and Texas has been replaced with 65+ pound coy/dog/wolves. That will kill humans and attack pets/kids and eats “anything” including it’s own kind. (Taylor Mitchell in Cape Breton was the first documented death here in the Northeast, but not the only or the last.)
How to Enter:
- Kill the coyote!!!
- Take it’s picture with you holding it or standing/kneeling /sitting near it. (You have to be in the picture.)
- Email the picture along with a brief story about the hunt with the usual who/what /where/when…. To email@example.com (Subject: Coyote Exterminator) OR….Snail Mail: Mail your printed pic and a note to Brent Reece: 25 Garfield Street #2A, Madison Me 04950
- I will post all pictures on my blog and on NWW’s Facebook page. I will select one picture each month for cudos and possible prizes. Once per year..like in June I will select a YEARLY WINNER from the previous MONTHLY WINNERS.
It costs nothing to enter and I will except pictures from all 48 states and Canada!!! But they must comply with the #2 rule!!
