Has anyone ever got a fox or coyote in allegheny county or 2b? I live at the top near wexford and im just tired of driving 45 mibs either direction to hunt. Iv hunted the wexford sgl 203? Two times and I shot a racoon, I have heard and seen coyoes in the valley vehind my house but cannot hunt there. Anyone got any ideas as far as "public" places to go or what not... thanks

Over the past 4 years we have shot at several in 2b, however, only killed one as recently as 3weeks ago. Started out with the cotton tail distress and after 2 min shut the call off. 20 secs later saw eyes at 100 yards out and coming fast. Got within 75 yards and almost had a stroke when we saw what it was. My buddy crushed it with a 204 and it dropped dead in it's tracks. Couldn't believe it. Trying to figure out how to use photo bucket so all of you see this hog.

87 I have seen both at the schools on the hill. Now I know you can't there but it might be a starting point for ya. I have also seen foxes the the other end by the park. By the old drive-in.

I need to start asking random ppl for permision, basicly its reall the only way around here, theres tons of woods its just mostly private. too bad north park isnt a state park; my buddy lives near the boat house and hears them all the time haha. i have seen two foxes this year locally a red and a grey, the grey was road kill right on 19, I usedto see foxes all tye tine when I was a kid but all I ever get in sw pa is coyotes, i did shoot my first red this year in burgettown, but otherwise.

Its great to be done and get in the car knowing your 5 miles from your house, I have no problem driving an hour it just gets old when it doesnt work out, iv had alot of luck in 2a, 1a. Just need to put it together locally. I bet we have some monster coyotes here cause they have protection of private property and saftey zones, I hear them pretty often in tye valley behind my house, maby ill breakout the crossbow.

Be careful if u do try Allegheny- shotgun,rimfire or archery only - get caught with a centerfire in here and you will Be In hot water.
