Default Coyote contest survey

I would like to have a little forum contest for coyote control in our state but I would like everyone to take this survey to see if its worth having. If so ill set up the rules and get things organized, thanks everyone. I realize the prizes aren't huge but it's just a little something to try and get us motivated to kill the yotes.

Here's the link to the survey:

$50 a piece bounty is not enough incentive?

Some of the questions you ask are not opinion questions but scientific ones. If you want an accurate answer, you may be better served reading up on the biological studies on the subject rather than taking a poll.

I'm not looking for the scientific answer, I'm looking for the opinion of people.

And personal opinions will get you what exactly? 'Personally', I don't much care for contests to see who can kill the most critters, so I'll pass.

This is my feeling and it may differ from yours but, I believe coyote contests like this are actually detrimental to the thinning of the population. I think you end up with a bunch of rookies that really don't know what they are doing educating all the coyotes and stirring them all up so the real hunters have a difficult time getting them in.

The reason I believe this is I've hunted in areas where I have seen coyotes but have also been aware that other hunters have been in the area. It is extremely difficult to get the dogs in. When we ranged out farther into areas we knew the other hunters had not been in, we were very successful. Sometimes we had to range out close to 100 miles.

The same thing the bounty has done only on a larger scale. Most contests generally are not a bunch of rookies. The people entering them usually know how to call. Online contests on the other hand are different. They also usually bring out the ones that want to cheat because it is easier to do than in an actual contest.

So to some of your logic that more people hunting them is worse. Does this mean that you also believe that general deer units less deer are killed than on LE deer units just because more people are hunting them? No more are killed but it is a lower success rate.
