    Oh. I guess that's something else the Mdc has wrong. Lmao. They just say it's stable so we don't notice our pockets are full of coyotes. :rofl:

    What youve said has been shown to be wrong.

    They have a shoot on sight culture:

    And what I've said hasn't been proven wrong. They don't have high coyote harvest. We do.:rofl:

    We dont have high coyote harvest. We all have similar coyote harvests. It doesnt matter. None of us kill anywhere close to 75% of our total population, which is what it would take for hunters to HAVE AN IMPACT. We dont and never have.

    Yes we do have high coyote harvest. Lol. Plenty high enough to keep our population stable.

    Already have. Read all the statements about the impact of hunter harvest. I believe the statement was "zero impact" in Missouri and across the US.

    Wet cold springs are kind of a double whammy when it comes to young turkeys and coyote predation. If the cold wet temps don't get them, the smell of wet feathers can definitely up the smell of nesting poults .

    I always worried more about those little nest raiders for turkeys ( skunks , coons and Ol poss ) but I'm sure a coyote would get right in there if given a chance ... I think a truck load of dog proofs is in order for next year

    One study that I believe Hawk/Jeff has brought up in the past is Hawk predation or perceived Hawk predation on turkeys/poults. I can't remember which state, but residents began removing hawks from the population under the guise of assisting turkey poult survival numbers. The removal of Hawks resulted in an increase to the snake population. I believe the study showed a direct decline in turkey pop in relation with the increase in snake populations due to a man made decrease in the hawk population.
    Less Hawks = More snakes= less turkeys......

    Bottom line.... Man has never been able to mirror Mother Nature. That being said proper habitat, and a trapping program can't hurt.

    Question ... do these same nest predators I.E. raccoons, skunks, opossum eat snakes????

    It really cant hurt. You wont ever take out enough of anything on an individual farm to cause those problems.

    But yes, we have never been able to fix nature. It just causes problems, or wastes our time.
