Coyotes

An interesting thing this spring is happening in my area of Tioga 3A. This morning I shot my second coyote of the season coming in on me fast. I rolled him with TSS 9's which I will not use anymore due to bad shot penetration.
In talking today with other hunters I found out this is happening much to frequently. I know of 9 coyotes shot here in 3A so far this season. We are all hearing gobblers as these jackals were coming in. I used to hear by now in years past 1 or 2 incidences of coyotes but this is very unusual.Has anybody else noticed an increase of coyotes in gobbler season or is this just a bad year for these $&*#@[email protected] ?

How far was it when you rolled him with 9’s? I killed one with TSS 9’s a few years ago at 38 yards....stone dead on impact.

I have killed coyotes during spring gobbler season the last 3 seasons. They love the hen call and they come in hot. Who needs to coyote hunt at night LOL. All the coyotes i have killed were all during the day in spring gobbler season and rifle season. I will also add that last gobbler season a coyote was on the chase on 3 deer but as soon as i called like a hen that coyote stopped dead in his track and ran right at me the rest is history.

Be careful they are dead when you walk up on them...They are extremely aggressive animals...

Maybe they're better at killing turkeys than we've been lead to believe.

Hunted 3A Tioga Monday and saw one turkey turd on a 3 mile walk. Saw 3 piles of coyote crap.

So far this year I have seen 2 coyotes turkey hunting in 3d.
The first was on opening day, I had my son and his friend with me and we came across the coyote while doing some cutting and running. It was odd because most of the coyotes I have encountered in the past run off and disappear pretty quickly, this one kept reappearing in front of us looking us over just out of shotgun range. Anyway, this was the first coyote the kids have seen in the wild and it has got them fired up to start coyote hunting, so it was a positive experience.
The second was last tuesday, I was watching some turkeys on the roost just before fly-down and saw a coyote sneaking around close by. At about 25 yards I let him have it with a 3in 20 ga load of heavy shot and he was drt. I was surprised to see the coyote had about a half dozen porcupine quills stuck to his nose and muzzle.

That is why they need to legalize small caliber rifles for spring turkey the hunters would end up killing a lot more coyotes...I hunt on a logging road that runs along the side of a mountain the coyotes will hide in the brush along the road and when a turkey comes walking along will launch downhill to catch it... I have found several piles of turkey feathers to verify this method they use to kill turkeys...

I have had them surround me in the dark and start barking on several occasions. On Tuesday I had birds going and could hear a whole pack of them yipping down below me . Sometimes they will sound off when the towns fire whistle starts going off. There are a lot in my area of Westmoreland County. Unfortunately I only seem to lay eyes on them when I don’t have a gun on me. Last November I did give one a haircut with my bow.

I had one come in behind in on SGL 331 in 1992 but there was no way to get a shot.I haven't called one in since with a turkey call and we have plenty of coyotes.
