    I have many pheasant hunting friends that kill coyotes when ever they can thinking they are helping the birds. I've never been convinced.

    All very true.

    However, I’d like to see an autonomous tractor work the fields I’ve worked this year. With all the rain I use the decades of knowing where I can go and when to get a field done.
