Persons who reside In the sections
where deer abound are responsible
for the statement that coyotes destroy
I more deer than hunters do. They
have been frequently known to attack
large bucks and there can be no
doubt that their ravages among fawns
and smaller deer are appalling.
If a portion of the sum devoted to
the protection of game were set aside
to pay a bounty on coyote scalps it 1
might go much farther toward the
