Coyote hunting tournament kicks off near Indianapolis

GREENFIELD, Ind. — A coyote hunting tournament kicked off Friday near Indianapolis, where growing urban populations have driven the coyote population up in recent years.

The Coyote Showdown, hosted by Stocose Outdoors and Highsmith Guns in Greenfield, is being held for the first time. Organizer Erik Fannin said the tournaments are becoming more popular in southern and western Indiana, so he wanted to start one in this area.

“They’ll eat just about anything and so it’s something we’re working really hard to try and control the population of,” Peterson said. “We’re looking for responsible sportsmen to help control the population.”

That’s what the teams will do this weekend, as the seek to kill the most coyotes and take home cash prizes.

  1. I’m not sure anything has pissed me off more than these coyote culls that happen all across this country, with coyotes being blamed for anything and everything to justify this egregious slaughter of wildlife. The people who participate are soulless barbarians and no doubt christians who continually justify their faux exalted status over other species.

    • I know, they are just so stupid. People stubbornly insist on being stupid and ignorant. Northing underscores it more than how they voted.

      “They’ll eat just about anything and so it’s something we’re working really hard to try and control the population of,”

      Funny, the same thing can be said about people.

      • It isn’t just the religious either. People generally put themselves above other life on the planet, and consider themselves ‘more important’, whether atheist or fundamentalist, and everywhere in between. Whether it is a religious holdover in our brains or what, who doesn’t want to be told ♪How Great I Am ♫.

        What I would like to know is, if people are so religious – isn’t it blasphemy and sacrilege to treat what God’s creations, purportedly given to us by Him, so wantonly and disrespectfully? They deserve lightning bolts in return. Here is where people make no logical or rational sense in their behavior and thinking.

    • I am with you. I just feel so angry and so powerless! the people who participate in this carnage are soulless sadists. Barbarian implies that they live in a world where this type of behavior is required. These killers, don’t live in such world, they choose to do this atrocity because they derive a sadistic pleasure from it.

  2. Disgraceful when will we get it together and demand an end to killing contests!

  3. Maybe they need some culling, but they are currently just about the only wildlife left around here. I like to listen to them at night, since there is nothing else here to watch or hear. I hope it is for reasons of balance, and less about the cash prizes or the pleasures of doing so. Given the history of America hunters, I fear it is for the worst.
