    Coyote Biology and Behavior

    Coyote Biology and Behavior

    Then I go through a general overview of coyote biology and behavior.  As trappers, we should be experts on the game that we pursue, so I thought it might be helpful to review some data regarding coyotes, hopefully to improve our effectiveness as trappers.  Coyotes are a pretty interesting critter anyway, especially looking at their expansion throughout North American, and possibly soon South America.

    Meat Trapping

    Meat Trapping

    If you’re a trapper or hunter, odds are that you’ve at least considered eating various wild game. I think eating some of the meat we catch is a great opportunity to introduce others to wild game as well as give us some additional arguments to those who don’t approve of trapping. The fact is, when handled properly it is quality tablefare, and a great talking point!

    Trapping Harvest and Historical Data

    Trapping Harvest and Historical Data

    In this week’s episode I dig into some trapper survey data and find some historical data of trapper harvest from several different states, some dating back to the 1930s. It is very interesting data and highlights how important it is for trappers to accurately respond to those surveys. Our game agencies rely on us for good data, and if we don’t provide it to them then they don’t have good data to manage the resource with.
