Chavez, who has faced two weeks of angry phone calls and protests - and even a threat to his life - is not backing down from holding the contest, in which New Mexico hunters have two days this weekend to shoot and kill as many coyotes as they can. The winners get their choice of a free shotgun or a pair of semi-automatic rifles. (AP Photo/Albuquerque Journal, Marla Brose)
