Harry Vanderweide recently wrote an article in the Maine Sportsman stating how he feels that Coyotes will someday be a big game species in Maine with a specific season, and bag limit. He compared coyotes to the black bear problems in the 60's when they actually had a bounty on them and were considered a nuisance animal. The same month in the Northwoods Sporting Journal one of their writers wrote an article about the population explosion of coyotes and how deer hunters should shoot every coyote that they have a chance at. I tend to agree with the latter and often find myself wondering how Harry comes up with these ideas. I have a few ideas myself for changing the title of his "Ramblings" column in the Sportsman.
