Hunting varmints is a form of pest control. Animals that are considered varmints include raccoons, opossums, coyotes, bobcats, and prairie dogs. Varmint hunting controls excess animal populations, providing farmers and ranchers with a valuable method of restricting nuisance wildlife populations so that they don't overrun and overgraze farmlands. This engaging book explains preparation, responsibilities, ethics, hunting techniques, and steps to take after a harvest. Readers will become familiar with varmint traits and the hunting challenges of these wily, mischievous, and crafty animals.
