Cover Illustration: Coyote hunting was a popular sport in Western Canada and was often compared to the fox hunt of Britain. Ranchers and farmers saw the coyote as a pest, so the hunt was seen as both a sport and a means of keeping down the coyote population. In March 1926, a coyote hunt in the Fort Saskatchewan area received considerable publicity when the Mutual Life cup was offered to the most successful hunter. Above is a hunter, his son, one dead coyote, and two hounds.
