Spike, isn't it past your scotch time???
Same here. Overall we've got a big problem in this country with predators in general. When I was a kid "hide hunting" for coons, bobcat, coyote etc was a passion and a way we could all make some good money while having a good time over the weekends. The anti's killed the fur industry and that killed the hide industry (along with regulations which drove all the tanneries offshore) and as such predators have exploded across the country. As they have our game bird populations have correspondingly dwindled steadily.I understand that. Ours get along fine with my wife's house cats but in the field they think they are really fun chew toys!
In the US the biggest predator problem we have on game birds are feral cats so that's something we encourage rather than discourage.
