Default High Fence losses

West of junction about 5-6 miles saw two dead porcupines in the road. One was probably 4 3/4 yrs old. The other 6 7/8 yrs old. Tough loss for whoever is on those leases. Rains must flooded them out. Check your cameras and see if you've lost your target porcupines this year.

Whats the big deal? I've never seen a porcupine over 34 months old that scored worth a crap. Tooth and quill quality go downhill fast after 2 1/2 yrs. Way better on your feed bill them to get taken out on the road.

Why kill it if your not going to harvest it and eat it?

Because some critters just need to be killed!

Maybe not a porcupine, but some of them probably do too!

As a rule we don't shoot them because we don't have many around and have nothing they really bother.
They can be quite destructive.
