<quoted text> No not all the time do thos predators kill just to eat. Dogs wolves & cototes will kill every sheep and goat they can just for the fun. Go back and read my post I stated I might have ????turned the fox loose. You know that wasnt gonna happen. That fox and her potential offspring wont be around to eat the baby rabbitts ,quail & turkey eggs and destroy ground nesting birds, the same for the skunk. I have the only place around that still has coveys of Quail. And its because I provide habitat with overgrown fence rows ect. and that habitat also attracts the predators. and it my desire to keep the predators in check. my land ,my habitat, my choice, simple at that no wiggle room no leeway on my own place im King & Dictator . Someday ill be dead and gone and what happens then will be some new owners choice. ill do this . from now on I wont tell about the predators I snuff. What you dont know wont hurt you.
"I have the only place around that still has coveys of Quail. And its because I provide habitat with overgrown fence rows ect."
You are absolutely right. You have quail because you provide habitat. You apparently also have plenty of predators according to what you said you caught in your traps recently. That proves the point that prey needs predators and predators need prey. It's a mutual relationship where they both benefit. They have been surviving together on your property each keeping the other alert and healthy. Removing predators will NOT benefit the prey species. All it will do is make you feel good.

I read that Coyotes range from Panama to Alaska, but I don't remember seeing much of them as a young person until I moved to Texas. Same with Armadillos, even saw a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher this summer...and it ain't supposed to be this far north.
When it comes to birds, there is no such thing as "ain't supposed to be this far north."

Birds have wings. They are free to go anywhere they want. And boy, do they! Mi had no fewer than 7 Rufous Hummingbirds show up here within the last month or so. Painted Buntings have been reported from the upper peninsula in previous years. Cave Swallows have been seen here in the fall on several occasions. I could go on and on and on listing all the birds that shouldn't be this far north, but showed up anyway. And birds that shouldn't "this far south," or "this far east," or "this far west." Google "rare bird alert" for any state and see how many hits you get!

I check the RBA all the time hoping for something new to show up. This winter I'm hoping for Pine Grosbeaks or Red or White-winged Crossbills coming "this far south."

Keep in mind all the fires Texas and OK had in the last few years. Alot of habitat had been burned. Your Scissor-tailed Flycatcher could have been wandering looking for new territory if his had been altered too badly.

Also as populations increase, the young move off in search of new territories. I wouldn't think it uncommon to have Scissor-tails in your area. In fact, I would say it is to be expected. You live very close to their usual range and that species seems to be faring well around humans. Much like the range expansion of the Tufted Titmouse and the Red-bellied Woodpecker.

And there is nothing wrong with me doing what makes me feel good on my own place. We drove all around the farm today and I didnt see one varmit track. Im pretty shure ive greatly reduced their numbers. I know the rabbit & ouail where holed up in the brush piles & overgrowth that was covered in snow. cototes & dogs ect would try and dig arouns and flush them out. Earlier there where turkeys scratching around the barn lot. There is a creep where the little calves can get sweet grain. And the turkey where scratching for the grain in the calf manure.

There is no such thing as a "Mythical balance of nature" anymore except in a few vast biomes such as the Amazon Basin.
As far as ecosystems go, some are holding their own..as far as biomes go they are failing.

Woman shot in back of head


Linda , 29 , a resident of San Diego California, was visiting her in-laws and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries.


Later, her husband noticed her sitting in her car in the driveway with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head. He became concerned and walked over to the car. He noticed that Linda's eyes were now open and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Linda replied that she had been shot in the back of the head and had been holding her brains in for over an hour.

The husband called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from her head. When they finally got in, they found that Linda had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head. A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She initially passed out but quickly recovered.

Linda is a blond, a Democrat,Anti gun anti NRA and an Obama supporter, but that could all be a coincidence. The defective biscuit canister was analyzed and the expiration date was from 2008, so it was determined to be Bush's fault.

Man didn't "survive" because he killed predators. He just simply killed predators to make his life easier.
Man survived because of the asteroid impact off the Yucatan Peninsula causing a world-wide extinction, therefor giving mammals a chance to evolve.

Luck of the draw.

Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot
full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for
minimum water quality standards.
He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His
medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure
their safety and work as advertised.
All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers
medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their
employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares
his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe's bacon is safe to
eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing
industry.
Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; His bottle is
properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents
because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting
on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and
takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree-
hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our
air.
He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to
work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation
fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public
transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a
contributor.
Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay,
medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some
liberal union members fought and died for these working standards.
Joe's employer pays these standards because Joe's employer doesn't
want his employees to call the union.
If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he'll get a worker
compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn't think
he should loose his home because of his temporary misfortune.
It's noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some
bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some
liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who
ruined the banking system before the depression.
Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below
market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that
Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and
earned more money over his lifetime.
Joe is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at
his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to
dad's; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal
fought for car safety standards.
He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live
in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers
didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electric until
some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and
demanded rural electrification.(Those rural Republicans would still
be sitting in the dark)
He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social
Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could
take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to. After his visit with dad
he gets back in his car for the ride home.
He turns on a radio talk show, the host keeps saying that liberals
are bad and conservatives are good (He doesn't tell Joe that his
beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit
Joe enjoys throughout his day). Joe agrees, "We don't need those big
government liberals ruining our lives; after all, I'm a self-made man
who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I
have."

Take a walk down any creek, visit any mountain top and what can you readily find...fossil evidence that life is much older than many of you will admit or some will let themselves imagine. There is verifiable scientific evidence of at least five world-wide extinctions spanning millions of years.

Don't give a damn if most of want to deny fact...in fact I expect it.

I see what you're talking about now Brickshy, I think he can probably come up with a thousand dollars. But I see this as further proving just what a hypocrites you and your crowd are more than him.
