A new state-sponsored program in North Dakota that helps connect landowners plagued by coyotes with hunters and trappers who can eliminate the pesky predators has proven popular, but some conservation groups say it is misguided.
The North Dakota Game and Fish Department won’t have tallies on this year’s deer gun season for several months, but if comments at the department’s recent series of advisory board meetings are any indication, hunters generally were satisfied with the season.
Hunters and anglers shared their views with North Dakota Game and Fish Department staff as part of the advisory board meetings the department holds twice a year in eight locations across the state. The fall circuit included meetings Monday night in Devils Lake and Tuesday night in Fordville, N.D.
There’s no doubt the much-maligned canines take a few deer. Last winter, wolves killed six of 16 deer that had been fitted with GPS collars as part of a study the Department of Natural Resources was conducting near Fourtown, Minn. A seventh deer that died also might have been taken by wolves, but researchers weren’t able to say for sure.
Prompted largely by hunters who believe coyotes are hurting deer populations, a couple of bills have surfaced this winter in the North Dakota Legislature taking aim at reducing coyote numbers. House Bill 1454 and Senate Bill 2224 each would establish a $100 bounty on coyotes until 2,000 are taken.
It was an absolutely beautiful day in southeast South Dakota on Saturday. The sky was clear and temperature was in the low 60s. It was a picturesque fall day.
But there was a South Dakota storm brewing inside the DakotaDome. And UND didn’t weather it, especially in the first half.
