So you were just out killing them for fun?

Maybe it's me, but I don't get the point of hunting unless you're going to consume the kill. That's probably why I prefer fishing, were at least if I don't want to eat the catch, I can release it and it can live on until the next time.

I'm a big hunter and normally I feel the same way. Except for animals that are causing problems with over population. I'm 100% ok with shooting rabbits, coyotes, rats, whatever. Not cool with making something suffer though. I tAke it pretty hard when you track a wounded deer for 3 hrs and find it still alive. If you can't kill it clean, don't.

I understand the population control issue. So what do you do with the dead rabbits and rats? Use them as bait to kill a coyote? An then do you eat the coyote? I guess I just don't understand the need. Now if you had land and the coyote was impacting your livestock an livelihood, then I understand, but I live like .75 miles from Puck and we have no threat of coyotes impacting our lives here next to the 215, so I guess I just don't understand the situation.

I understand where you are coming from and on your side of the 215 it isn't a big deal. Farther south I've seen coyotes near 215/93 interchange. Coyotes have gotten much more abundant in the past 3-5 years. Utah has been worse and that is why the bounty went from $20-50. Most people don't skin a coyote after they trap/kill. I have and it isn't pretty but you used to get paid decent money for fur.
Bobcat on the other hand has been decent. Like $400-1200 each.
As far as food baiting that is against the law in Nevada. If I were to kill a rabbit I would plan on consuming it. Unless it was a jack rabbit.
What I'm sure most on here understand is the problem with over population is that they will come further into town to find food. Near golf courses where rabbits are everywhere. But what happens is when there isn't a rabbit, but a small dog, cat, or kid. That's where the problem arises. That or you see coyotes, deer, horses, starving to death because the land can't support the numbers. To me that is much worse that getting killed.

I know folks who have had their dogs killed on golf courses by coyotes.

These big bastards were every where. We saw probly 20+ in the few hours we were out, and even more of the rats. I was surprised that we didnt see a coyote while out there.

So what do you do with them after you kill them?

I completely understand that. I come from a background of spending time every summer on my uncle's farms and us chasing coyotes off the land every couple nights. I just don't understand the killing of the rabbits and rats, especially if baiting is illegal in NV. Why kill them if not consuming as Puck said he's not consuming them.
