Usually there aren't many brought in on Friday. Most will be weighed in today with a few more tomorrow. The majority are killed by houndsmen. I hunted with pavarmit today but we didn't manage to get a chase.
Keep us updated if you hear more results. I might head out calling for awhile tonight again.

I was there at 2:30 today and at that time there was 25 coyotes total brought in (Friday-Saturday), and another one was coming in when I was leaving. On Friday alone there was a total of 16 brought in with the heaviest being 46.95 lbs. When I left the heaviest so far today (Saturday) was 44.95lbs. Of the 25 coyotes 11 were taken with dogs, 6 with electronic calls, 5 by still hunting/posting and 3 with mouth calls. Of the 25, 18 were males and 7 females. I was told there were about 840 registered hunters. I got one this morning and he was actually the smallest one brought in at 20.80 lbs.

Hunters bag 58 coyotes in northeastern Pa. hunt

<span style="font-weight: bold"> <span style="font-size: 17pt">Hunters bag 58 coyotes in northeastern Pa. hunt </span> </span>

<span style="font-weight: bold">February 04, 2013 </span>
<span style="font-weight: bold">TUNKHANNOCK, Pa. </span>(AP) — Hunters have bagged 58 coyotes during an annual hunt in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Organizers say 841 hunters participated in the Northeastern Regional Coyote Hunt, which ended Sunday and is in its 13th year. It's organized by District 9 of the Pennsylvania Trapper's Association.

The heaviest coyote taken during the three-day hunt weighed nearly 47 pounds and was taken in Susquehanna County. That county also produced the most coyotes - 16. Seven coyotes were taken in Luzerne County.

District 9 director Bill Kalinauskis says the conditions for the hunt were excellent this year, especially with snow in some areas.

Last year, 817 hunters bagged 53 coyotes

Just to throw this out there, nearly 30 were taken by hunting with dogs, 13 with e-callers, 8 by mouth calls, 6 by still hunting, and i'm not sure how to classify the one shot with a 22LR pistol standing in a pond (he had pretty bad mange).

Assuming each coyote was killed by a different person, that is only a 6% success rate. Yotes are tricky buggers...

Good number. Not a fan of the dog hunting, don't think they should be able to run all over creation.

The key to winning these contests is to hunt over hounds. The vast majority of yotes are killed that way.

"hunt over hounds. The vast majority of yotes are killed that way."

Well based off of this hunt, that statement is erroneously wrong.

51.7 % were killed by dogs, or 30 out of 58.

48.3 % were killed by other methods, i.e. calling, or 28 out of 58.

So Really based off of this hunt, which I am assuming your statement was based off of this hunt, YOU ARE WRONG, That is not a Majority.

Majority is 2/3's correct?

Re: Hunters bag 58 coyotes in northeastern Pa. hunt

Maybe he shouldn't have used the word majority but he is correct overall. Check out the stats of the Mosquito Creek hunt which is the biggest hunt in Pa. Dogs kill way more yotes than calling. I stopped hunting in that hunt because of that. Don't get me wrong I have nothing against hunting with dogs because it is a good way to get them and they cost a lot of money for training etc. and its a lot of work.. But the average hunter calling cannot compete with houndsmen.
Some of those guys bring in 3 to 5 dogs in where a hunter is lucky to call in one. Well the odds of getting a large one out of 3 or 5 is way better than a large one out of one. Thing is, there is no way to have a hunt without dogs. My 2 cents

Went up North a few years ago, with a friend to his cabin. We were going to hunt Monday night until Wednesday morning. We got to camp around 9am , the back yard had blood in the snow in a 30 yard radius with human foot prints, dog tracks and coyote fur. He sold his camp the following spring. Dog hunters keep the population in control. If you want to kill them the easy way keep up a good bait pile and hunt it. Put a trail camera by the bait, when it goes off you know you have visitors. I killed 1 over bait, in the day light and it was my last I would sooner call.

Did you ever try hunting over hounds for coyote or fox? To make a statement like that my guess would be no. Sproul

What's your point?
Mine is I don't think someone has the right to run their dogs over MY land just because they are chasing a fox or coyote. It's a matter of respect IMO.
