Besides from helping to control the population, there are many other benefits to predator/varmint hunting. Many of the target species fur can be sold with the right license, providing some financial return on any speciality equipment one might purchase. There are also multiple predator hunting contests in the area which provide a source of competition, an opportunity to meet fellow sportsmen, as well as another possible return on investment. By helping to control the population you can also help to stop the possible spread of disease as well as to help protect livestock and pets. You will also be helping the population of the many prey species that are hunted by these predators, but the best benefit might be that it is a challenge and it is just plain fun.
It’s Here! This is my favorite time of the year. There is a chill in the air in the mornings that makes you put on a hooded sweatshirt. When you walk outside there is a different smell. The grass in your yard is not growing as fast and trees are starting to make their switch to fall. This can only mean one thing…..Deer season has arrived!
