    I understand wanton waste and actually agree with most of the regulations against this. I might have missed it but where did it say that most of the coyotes killed end up in the dump? If I did miss it I apologize. Si, what is next? Woodchuck hunting? Crow hunting?

    “Hunters” openly opposed are a bigger enemy than the antis
    I've already told you more than I know.

    I can’t write to specifics on the Mass situation however the consensus among those against coyote contest and hunting coyotes widely claim animals taken are discarded without any type of use.

    Default Speak Up Now

    Bob Durand, the newest member of the Mass Fish and wildlife board, spoke at our bi-monthly club meeting last night. Bob was the lone opposition to passing the coyote contest and wanton waste bill currently before the board. As a result of his lone opposition the decision was made to open this subject up to public comment. If you have an opinion regarding these topics your time to comment is now as they will be meeting shortly.

    Bob made some really good points regarding these subjects, I would suggest you read up on the issue and share your feelings. Realize that the board is being heavily influenced by peta type, well organized anti hunting groups. You can write the board at:

    MassWildlife Field Headquarters
    1 Rabbit Hill Road
    Westborough, MA 01581

    I usually keep to myself regarding these subjects write my letters without spreading the word of my opinions but we must keep in mind our way of life is under attack on many many fronts. we all bitched and moaned when Mass voters were hoodwinked into banning leg hold traps due to pictures on the tv of poor little poodles whining in a trap. next will be coyote contest, then deer pools, trout contest, etc, etc.

    Speak now or you will be telling your grand kids hunting stories instead of being with them while they make their own.

    sorry being so long winded. best of luck to everyone in the coming season
