Re: Predators & Fawns Article

First fawn study documented BEAR as the most frequently id’ed predator of fawns.

Today’s fawn & predator study has documented BEAR as the most frequently recorded predator in study areas. Surprise, surprise!

Apparently some people are threatened by this and still do not want to believe it.

I used the title of the article, as the title of my thread, in hopes that the article would get read in its entirety. Accusations to the contrary are simply nonsense.

I feel confident that R. S. B. already subscribes to PA Game News. Others who want to follow along can easily grab their own copy at home, the grocery store, or google it. A hot link would only work for those who already are registered and have password anyway. Everyone here knows your history.

When I made the comment about no one knowing how many predators there were in either previous study area it was because there had been no study to determine predator densities and only predator loses.

The PGC bear population estimates per WMU not good enough? Bear & coyote harvest by unit not telling enough either?

I always thought Bear took more fawns than yotes.
especially in my stomping grounds (3D & 4C)

Question for you Sir - how does PGC get coyote harvest #'s per unit - no reporting method that I am aware of..

any info would be appreciated..

kindly refer to Food Habits paragraph
But I knew they eat porkies but they were not brought here to control porkies. Thus the urban legend. Coyotes and bobcat also eat porkies but hunt them on the ground not in the tree tops. They are not special porkie eaters like many make them out to be. If anything they should cut back on some rodents.

Urban legend stands right next to the coyote stockings and mountain lion sightings. What next the otter were put here to control the trout numbers. Waugh!

Who don't want to believe this? Who? Seems we all understood this from the first study.
You on the other hand want to make it look like the bears are taking more than they always did and there is no proof of that at all. Thus far the second is confirming what they found on the first. Study is not over so who knows. Waugh!
