Got a picture from a crew that hunted Erie County. They got 16 with hounds. Hard to believe but there are 16 in the bed of the pickup.

Not saying it is true, but they do not thermometer them at Mosquito creek so guys are definitely saving them for 10 plus days before the hunt without fear of them being rejected. As long as the coyote is small enough in weight that they do not have a fear of being polygraphed for a top 3 coyote they will keep turning them in. They drag them in there and their eyes are white and sunk back into there head... that does not happen in 2 days. I am a hound hunter and it is not possible to kill 16 in 3 days.

its a shame ,
all things with money in them
bring out the cheaters
had a local contest that was great for yrs , then one guy had to WIN a few yrs ina row , only to be caught cheating, by trapping them, pen raising and feeding the WILD game, to get them fat and then shooting them in his pen?

he did get caught, but he ruined things for all the honest folks

this contest is getting SO big with prize money, it will ONLY make for more cheaters that find out about it
ruining the Honest FUN it is for the honest folks that enter and just TRY to hunt for fun and MAYBE get lucky

Thermometer them? Lol. So a 2 day old coyote is a different temperature than a 10 day old coyote?

Yes put a thermometer in their backside. Coyotes with hold an Internal Temperature of above 65 degrees for a minimum of 36 hours after they have been killed. Thus not allowing as much cheating. Works at District 9 trappers hunt. People will turn in daily rather than bring in 16 on Sunday when they know the highest rates of coyotes are being turned in and not risk much scrutiny over the condition of the coyote. If you don't think that, that is what's going on, climb out from under the rock you are living under.

There are several contest that I've considered entering. Whenever I read all the comments surrounding any of these contests, it reminds me why I hunt alone and don't care to attend things that involve crowds.

So you're saying a dead coyote outside for 24 hours in average 32 degree Temps will be 65 degrees? Lol. You might want to come out from under your rock
