Have always heard coyotes are “active” travelers, but I hear folks talking about hunting specific farms or areas.
What’s the skinny?
I agree with cm9. Find 'em in the same area season after season. Why? Like uncle buck stated, Food, Water, Shelter. That usually means cover, the thickest, remote place around.
Coyotes don't need to travel far, for the necessities, in most parts of Pennsylvania.
Here today gone tomorrow, is what I hear often about Coyote.
For the next two months, pups will be leaving parents and home range. So they will leave a void in that area.
Plus, hound hunters, trappers & predator callers will reduce population as the season progresses.
One main factor I experience from Coyote disappearance from an area is human pressure. No only due to fur season, but archery season, early muzzleloader season, small game hunters and so on.
The arrival of Pennsylvania's hunting seasons puts people in the woods hence; moving Coyotes to different areas by human pressure. Not saying these archery, muzzleloader or small game hunter are hunting or chasing Coyote, but just their presents in the woods on a daily basis is enough to move Coyotes out.
