The Arcane Sage
I only hunt for food, and because it is one less for some poor driver to get killed trying to avoid, like me!
Deer are prolific here due to farming. It saddens me to see deer carcasses splattered on the payment on my way to/from the workplace. Also flattened rabbits and other small game. I hunt, so it's better that the deer winds up on my dinner plate than in some motorist's windscreen with his insurance rates soaring.
I also hunted woodchucks on local farms. They do lots of crop damage and love to mow down soybean fields. Coyotes are being hunted--not by me--as there's money to be made from the pelts.
If there's an usual amount of Coyotes in the area, that means that they could be hunting those woodchucks too. I don't see why a person should hunt a predator like that.
Do you think it's contradictory for a furry to also be a hunter (excluding hunting other furries)? I realize that many, including myself, have a great respect for animals. I also know many would not harm an animal unless out of self defense. However, because of failing to control certain animal populations, such as deer, can lead to numerous problems, I am not against hunting in that regard. And you?
Because they find it amusing, for the most part. It's not like they plan to use any part of the animal, save for trophy purposes.If there's an usual amount of Coyotes in the area, that means that they could be hunting those woodchucks too. I don't see why a person should hunt a predator like that.
People think they cause alot of problems with livestock when they don't (I think), and I read they increase in population if you hunt them.
If they are hungry enough, a pack of them will try to kill a cow or sheep, but its rare to see them in packs.

Perhaps 200 years ago. But man has removed all of the natural predators. So if there were no hunting the animal population would breed out of control and devastate crops in a matter of years. Only to die off from starvation almost to the point of extinction.
