Steve Phillips, of Marietta, and his mother Elizabeth Bailey with a coyote that was trapped May 2 in Fulton County. Steve writes, “My mother is 85 years young now and is battling the effects of dementia. She still knows us and still likes to hear about our outdoor adventures. She was raised on a farm in Hart County, Ga but has lived most her life in Marietta. When coyotes showed up on their 5 acres several decades ago, it became a yearly challenge around their pond to catch as many as possible to protect the ducks and geese for the nesting season. I have many photos of her and my father, when he was still alive, in photos with coyotes that were trapped. The coyote issue is a regular conversation and she was delighted to get in this photo.”

Thanks for continuing the program and creating incentive for outdoorsmen to get out there and do our part in conservation.”

Thank you very much for hosting this contest and encouraging people to help get rid of coyotes.”
