Yea thats what i suspected, I went out in butler tonite... had a group of coyotes howling back to my female coy deep howls and long howl both female. I was surprised in a way. Iv done most of my hunting in beaver with good luck, but i wanted a new area and thats what i got. I could not get them closer than 300y but i heard several coming randomly in other directions, i was in a latter stand.

LOTS of grays in my corner of 2D. Actually saw one last night in the headlights.

I usually run about a 50-50 split reds to grays when I'm trapping.

I've seen four so far this year calling. But my dad sees a lot of reds on his way to work and back. I'm convinced there is a good number of them both at least in my area.

I called in a gray in about 2 weeks ago and caught a gray 3 days ago in on my trap line. All within 20 minutes of Indiana, PA.

Indiana county has alot of nice animals, I was told by a freind who went to school there, she said they spotlighted bear a couple time just messin around, i wouldnt be surprised. I just havnt seen one near me. All I hear or see are coyotes. I would like to get in a fox area i feel like they would be more productive. not that coyotes are a problem with me but i go out enought without many kills. Although last year i did get four in 1a.
