“When I think about someone wanting to kill all the predators, I often think of the teachings, when our creator looked at the creation and said it was good—every bit of it. I like coyotes and hawks, and seeing a mink
track on a river bank makes my day. I appreciate predators as much as I do small game, but the reality is that controlling predation is necessary for small game management. The question is how to go about it.”
Check out the Spring 2011 issue of North Carolina’s Upland Gazette for more of state quail coordinator John Wooding’s story on controlling predation without killing predators. Read that and more HERE.
