Our Game and Fish can seem unprincipled at times.  One moment, they are asking us to surrender prized tags to be auctioned to the wealthiest hunters, because they said it was to educate the public on the wildlife management philosophy that uses hunters to generate the necessary funding and to manage populations.  Then!  Then, they go and cave the first time they are challenged.  Coyote hunts ARE about population management.  The argument can be a slam dunk, but instead the Department is going to use our funds to advocate for anti hunting.  WHAT?

There is no state that could better defend predator control programs than this state.  With a state that has so many "island" populations that can be eradicated entirely by predators.  This state can make the most compelling argument with the examples of sheep, antelope, and other populations that are, as we all know, vulnerable.   Then they can point out that once the animals, that predators prey upon disappear, than so does the predators disappear. 

Instead, they appear to be advocating against hunting.   This makes the AZGFD look both weak and suspicious.

Not trying to sound like an apologist towards the department, but they didn’t ban coyote hunting.

You can still go out this evening if you so please. You and your buddies can make a few stands and accomplish the same results without all the social media fanfare.

Yep, just meet at the Black Cat with a few groups of buddy's, have a few beers, and place your bets. Go out and shoot'em and do the count in a designated location out of town.

They are caving to the antis again. We will be like CA soon. They will be paying people to kill off coyotes when the fawns arent surviving and the population takes a hit.

hopefully they ban fishing tournaments next, then bow fishing tournaments. then bow fishing all together. then we can move onto the real problems like hunting with dogs for sport. then ban hunting lions all together. maybe even get rid of hunting entirely. you and your buddies can still look at elk off the highway

I’m 50 years old. These attacks on our freedoms have commenced less than 10 years ago.  This new, younger generation is the catalyst. 

Unfortunately, it’s your generation that’s ruined hunting. You guys can’t piss in the woods without posting a status update on Instagram! Hunting and the outdoors was so much better before social media. It was shared with only those people that were important to us and not  every Tom, Dick and Harry on Instagram or Facebook! We’d go out, kill a few coyotes, sit around the campfire and talk about the fun. And that’d be it! 

Fast forward to today, and every second of every day HAS to be posted on Facebook or Instagram so you poor snowflakes can get some instant gratification or base your self-worth on others’ opinions. If guys would just go out, kill some coyotes and STFU, this wouldn’t be an issue. 

Sorry, but that’s the truth. Hunting here was so much better in the 70’s and 80’s and before the addiction to phones and social media that we see today.
