These are the eight reminders we got in 2017 that predator hunting is important.
We’re wrapping up 2017 by sharing some of the best and most-viewed posts, videos, and stories from 2017 and sharing them in our Wide Open Spaces 12 Days of Top Stories countdown.
Today we’ve got eight of the best predator stories in video form, all of which give us a good indication of how serious a predator problem can be.
If you’re into hunting predators, you’ll love these clips from the past year.
1. What It’s Like to Free a Predator from a Trap
First things first, you might not want to get tangled up with a wolf in a trap.
2. Elk Calf vs. Wolf and Grizzly
This video came from way back in January, but it was a memorable one.
3. Coyotes Take Down Muley
Snap back to more recently, and we knew when we published this mule deer being attacked less than a month ago that it would be one of the biggest videos of the year.
Fricken incredible ! Watched these coyotes take down a deer while bowhunting in South Dakota #muledeerhunting #daysinthewild #johnstallone #coyotehunting #coyotecalling #coyotecontrol

4. Sneaking Up on a Predator
This video of a sleeping coyote was from October, and was one of 2017’s craziest predator clips.
I have never snuck up this close to a sleeping coyote! This guy has Ninja skills or wearing Venator Camo! #ninja #predatorhunting #awesome #venatorcamo

5. 16 Predators in a Day
Les Johnson is an expert, and this video proves it.
6. “I Can Get a Wolf 1-on-1”
Arian Foster wasn’t bad on the football field, but does he need a reminder of what a predator is capable of?
Arian Foster has been thinking about a lot this NFL offseason.
7. Bobcat Attack
This clip took a spot in our top turkey hunting video list as well, and for good reason.
8. One Last Reminder
Just in case you thought snuggling with some coyotes would be cute.
