A war on coyote hunting has begun.

Animal rights groups around the nation have been testing ways to impact coyote hunting and they have struck in an unlikely state: Michigan.

Who would have thought this could happen in such a pro-hunting state?

That means it could happen anywhere. And in the grand scheme of things it is a war on the North American Model of Conservation. Watch this new mini-documentary to see how this could impact science-based hunting.

Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC) is taking a stand against the recent decision by the Natural Resources Commission (NRC) to close the coyote hunting season for three months, from April 15 to July 15. This short documentary illuminates the passionate efforts of MUCC members, who are deeply concerned that this decision, driven by “unsubstantiated social pressure and social perception,” threatens the very foundation of scientific wildlife management and hunters’ rights and directly violates the principles of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. Explore the implications of prioritizing social perceptions over data-driven conservation strategies, and how such decisions could pave the way for restrictive measures on hunting and outdoor activities. Hear firsthand from dedicated conservationists who are fighting not just for the preservation of coyote hunting seasons, but for the broader principle of maintaining public access to wildlife management based on science. Learn about the potential consequences of this closure on local ecosystems, game populations, and the heritage of hunting and conservation.

Discover why this battle is about much more than coyotes—it’s a pivotal moment for outdoor enthusiasts, signaling a slippery slope towards increased restrictions and the loss of traditional outdoor opportunities.
