  1. Well, theoretically, hunting is a “sport,” and sports are supposed to involved competition. Unfortunately, with hunting only one side usually wins. This time score one for the coyote who got home alive..

  2. Maybe im wrong but it gives me joy everytime I hear a hunter died! Whatever! I guess it is just fair but far from justice, should die more
    Often. At the end they are the ones carrying guns, isn’t it?

  3. Absolutely, Renee! This had made my day—and I have howled this good news to the coyote family that visits our property –they often drop by on their evening hunting, and at this time of year, mating rituals.
