    I have no problem with it at all. Man is the ultimate predator!
    I believe things should be kept in check. I wouldn't want an entire den of groundhogs wipped out that are not doing any damage, hey leave some seed. Coyotes? The more you kill, the more there are! Crows, oops...... I forgot, they are a protected songbird.<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle>

    If you are not eating those groundhogs you are really wasting a good meal. I've even tried crow twice...liked it the first time, didn't the 2nd.
    I try to utilize what I shoot the best way possible.

    People eat crow all the time. In fact we eat it regularly on this site.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

    I don't know but I've been told that coyotes taste a lot like young poodle.

    If cat doesn't bother you, I'm shocked that poodle gives you heartburn. In my book poodles ain't much more than a barking cat.

    I have in my time chowed down on some fine groundhog. Although I haven't tried any, I have a good friend that grills crow breast much the same as I do dove and he says it is very tasty. I have found no good use for coyote except for target practice. I would not waste my time field dressing them. Coyotes are the only critter that I have no reverence for.

    Ground hog smothered in barbaque sauce slow cooked in the
    crock pot will melt in your mouth.It's so good you will be
    scaping the slow cooker just for one more taste.
