Texas Aviator Is In Demand

As Coyote Hunter

The Daily Courier, Connellsville, PA - Friday, June 8, 1934


Fort Stockton, Texas - Hunting coyotes by airplane is the lucrative sport of Roy Baumgardner, who works for Texas ranchmen bothered by the pests.

The plane usually is used in connection with a ground drive against coyotes, the aviator pursuing the animals and shooting them with a shotgun after they have been jumped by hunters on the ground.

A base price is charged by Baumgardner whether coyotes are killed or not, with an additional amount for each animal killed. The price averages about $10 to $15 per coyote.

Baumgardner has contracts with ranchmen that do not begin until serveral months in the future because of the demand for his services.
