    Description

    We have asked Caren to join us, too, so we get at least three perspectives, because I don’t think there is one particular philosophy with predators that anybody can say works in every case. If you were to ask me what my predator program is, I would say I don’t really have one. That wasn’t always the case. When I was young, I took great delight in sitting for hours with a game call and calling up coyotes and shooting them and I really felt like I was accomplishing something. We had somebody on the ranch who ran dogs and hunted lions with the idea that we were really helping out the calf crop. Quite frankly we were losing more calves at that time than we are now.
