I thought maybe some of you Western coyote hunters would find this interesting. Last weekend there was a big coyote contest hunt here in pa. There was over 4500 registered hunters for this event. The total payout was over $22,000. The winner walked away with a check for $7500. For all the hunters there was only 38 coyotes killed. Here's a link to hunt results showing the payouts and # of animals taken.

Hmm, I don't think Del would do very good in this contest. Shootin' those dogs with his .300Win wouldn't leave much left to weigh! :D ;)

Now I know why Del said to use my 458. It was so his would weigh more than mine upon weighing. What a shifty charactor he is at times ;) :rolleyes:

If the ground were big enough to support that many hunters at the same time. That might be kinda fun....

Ah heck Debbie, You could say I posted it so everyone could see what goes on in predator hunting. I've never entered a contest hunt myself, but I know some guys who really enjoy the contests. The fact that it took 4500 hunters to bring in 38 animals shows me that the contests don't make a big a dent in the coyote population (here in Pa anyway).
