FYI, if you are birding in Harney County and vicinity Nov. 30 - Dec. 2, 2018, be aware that up to 150 hunters will be out there competing to bring in the most tonnage of coyote carcasses for cash prizes!

This is the “First Annual Coyote Hunting Tournament,” sponsored as a fundraiser by Oregon Farm Bureau’s Young Farmers & Ranchers.

Alas, we’re back in the 19th Century.

Better wear your orange vest, not your coyote costume. Just sayin’.
