It’s not coyotes.. it’s the deer or Brandon!I didn't work at a desk. Started that after retirement.
Our ancestors removed a lot of animals for food and those that would be a threat to their families and livestock at the time.
I grew up, up to the age of 10 some 120 miles south of Memphis, TN. We would roam the woods and fields never seeing a foot print or other signs of what is around here now. White tail deer were brought into the area in the late '50's for study. Flooding allowed them to escape from their pens. I never heard of a deer hunting season until the late '60's. Coyote's were brought in during the early '70's to help reduce their herds.
As a kid if we came home late after a night in town there would be hundreds of rabbits along the gravel roads. Now we might see 1 during a night drive.
