Mister E,, perhaps i have,, but if you had seen the DMT post before he deleted it, youd know why my reaction was such.. If someone says f*ck you long enough you finally give in and say it right on back. There are Three other posters on here that routinely demean and insult me as well,, and those receive the same these days as i tired of them too... Im coolio with everyone else here. Theres nothing i can do ifn your not coolio with me. Ill get on with things, just the same- as i always am...I gotta be me, no one else wanted the job.
Coz,thanks for the vote of confidence. I do understand folks getting upset about their local wildlife. Im NOT in favor of trapping any where near residences or the like. I even have a grey fox locally here that often sneaks a snack from my garbage out back.
Like most of you, i dont trap. But i understand the value of trapping when it concerns predators. THe pictures posted in this thread show some VERY healthy bobcats because, they truly are doing FINE with current management levels. Personally ive only shot one bobcat in my life. He was reaping havoc on my bird pens when i raised chukar, quail and pheasants.
I wont shoot a mtn lion without cause, due to one letting me live. They are now a "spirit animal" for me- by happenstance not choice.
