Default Coyote control/Bounty!

Not sure if anyone has seen this or not? I thought I would post a link.

Please tell me what you think. Good or bad?

Hmmm. Raising license tags to save mule deer? I sure remember a few politicians saying not to come back for more money.

I can remember discussing this last year. I concluded that even though I had a document disclosing the amounts that each county in Utah had for the coyote bounty, we were only able to identify 2 locations where the bounty could be collected. I called a few county offices where specific members wanted me to inquire about and no one had any idea where the bounty could be collected. Don Peay could increase the bounty to $100.00 per set of ears, but it doesn't do any good if there are only 2 locations revealed statewide. This is something that the DWR does not control.

Who do we need to contact to print some kind of pamphlet on where to collect the bounty?

Who is going to control pay out. Counties? The DWR? SFW? State Rep's? Drop boxes with a address and a check sent in the mail?

I think it a good idea. but I do not like the raising tag price to cover it. That part no thanks. Like said where are you going to take the ears and get the money?

The guy sponsoring the bill is from Monroe. Claims that there are more coyotes than livestock. Gimme a break. There's more sheep than flies, and more cows than ticks in this state. If a cattleman proposes this, then let the cattlemen pay for it.

I hope I'm okay posting these few sentences from the report:

Quote:
Our results suggest that the bounty program did not lead to substantial recruitment of new participants. While nearly half of respondents reported increased spending as a result of the program, the method most commonly used (calling and shooting) produced relatively little investment or local economic activity when compared to trapping, snaring, or aerial gunning. Participants said their most important motives for taking part were to enjoy the outdoors and protect big-game species, while additional income was minimally important. Based on county records, a total of 1,035 coyotes were harvested during the program in 2000, probably less than 1% of the coyotes in participating counties. Population models suggest this is far below the level necessary to reduce coyote abundance for even one year. Overall, these results suggest that while Utah’s coyote bounty may provide an enhanced, subsidized recreation program for a small segment of Utah citizens, it is unlikely to have any beneficial effect on populations of livestock or big game.
Quote is found in the conclusion section at the end of the article: http://bbartel.myweb.uga.edu/Site/Pu...nson03_WSB.pdf

I like the idea. I would pay 5-10 $ more if it was 100% for bounties and it helps our deer herd.
