County coyote population appears to be steady

  • Oct 4, 2018


A coyote spotted early Aug. 24 in the southern part of Beaver Township was killed later in the day by the Pennsylvania Game Commission after an officer observed its unusually fearless behavior. The coyote is believed to be one of this year’s pups, weighing about 20 pounds instead of the average adult weight of 50 to 60 pounds. It’s not unusual for coyotes or foxes to be out during the day, but animal control officers or local police should be notified if an animal shows signs of mental or physical abnormality.

COYOTE HUNTING TIPS: HOW TO HUNT COYOTES WITH ELECTRONIC & REGULAR CALLS


Coyotes are an essential part of North America’s ecosystem  But they can also be a pest.  They’re notorious for eating pets and small livestock. They’re also numerous in many areas, so their numbers need to be controlled, and the most effective and humane way to do that is by shooting.

Some places even allow coyote hunting year-round to thin the population.  The good news for hunters is that coyotes are a challenging and elusive quarry that makes for great sport.  The bad news is that it’s challenging enough that many find it hard to settle on the right techniques.

3 Critical Coyote-Hunting Tips

by Michael Faw – Wednesday, January 31, 2018

While all hunting is exciting, nothing spikes the excitement meter as high as coyote hunting. In most hunting situations for this species you are sitting on the ground, calling to imitate a meal such as a dying rabbit…and soon you have a coyote turning the tables and hunting you. It’s those many sharp, exposed fang-like teeth that are coming at you in a full-bore charge, and the overwhelming adrenaline rush that follows, that soon converts ordinary hunters into committed coyote chasers.

“While all hunting is fun, coyote hunting is at the top for thrills,” says Chase Watley of Centerville, Iowa. “The calling part is a lot of fun, and hopefully it will lead to shooting a coyote, which is even more fun.” Chase hunts on his family farm, and coyote numbers there have been rising in recent years.

Coyote Hunting Tips: A 101-Guide for the Beginner

BY: TONY J. PETERSON, THESPORTSMANCHANNEL.COM

Even though deer season is closed, there are plenty of hunting opportunities available; save some fawns and have fun by focusing on winter coyotes

Mortality studies conducted by state game agencies are shedding some light on the impact coyotes have on deer populations. The findings reveal a truth long suspected by much of the hunting public – coyotes, or song dogs, are killing machines.

This in itself isn’t such a big deal, until their populations start to increase. More canine bellies to fill means fewer prey animals on the horizon, it’s really that simple.

And worse, coyotes have benefitted somewhat from the anti- and non-hunting public’s distaste for wolf hunting.

8 Mistakes Rookie Coyote Hunters Make

BY BRAD FITZPATRICK 

Eichler and Zepp. They make it look so easy.

No matter how many times you watch the coyote-killing team on video, you just can’t figure out how to duplicate their success. While those guys seem to bring coyotes running to the gun every time they make a rabbit squeal, you’ve only managed to call in a few crows and one stray dog looking for an easy meal. You’ve spent a few months’ worth of rent on rifles, lights and calls. You’re developing tinnitus from listening to the scream of a dying rabbit over and over. And, still, you haven’t gotten a single ‘yote to show for your efforts.

Coyote Nation: A Crash Course in Coyote Hunting

By Tom Carpenter January 30, 2017

It used to be that when small-game, upland bird, waterfowl, and big-game seasons ended, a hunter finally had a chance to pull up an easy chair next to a cozy fire, rest up, and reflect on an autumn well spent.

Ditch that notion. Winter is time to hunt the hunter. Coyotes are out there waiting in habitat near you, and all you have to do is go after them to experience some of hunting’s knee-shakingest thrills.

A Plague of Pigs in Texas

Now numbering in the millions, these shockingly destructive and invasive wild hogs wreak havoc across the southern United States

SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE
JANUARY 2011

bout 50 miles east of Waco, Texas, a 70-acre field is cratered with holes up to five feet wide and three feet deep. The roots below a huge oak tree shading a creek have been dug out and exposed. Grass has been trampled into paths. Where the grass has been stripped, saplings crowd out the pecan trees that provide food for deer, opossums and other wildlife. A farmer wanting to cut his hay could barely run a tractor through here. There’s no mistaking what has happened—this field has gone to the hogs.

“I’ve trapped 61 of ’em down here in the last month,” says Tom Quaca, whose in-laws have owned this land for about a century. “But at least we got some hay out of here this year. First time in six years.” Quaca hopes to flatten the earth and crush the saplings with a bulldozer. Then maybe—maybe—the hogs will move onto adjacent hunting grounds and he can once again use his family’s land.

Wild hogs are among the most destructive invasive species in the United States today. Two million to six million of the animals are wreaking havoc in at least 39 states and four Canadian provinces; half are in Texas, where they do some $400 million in damages annually. They tear up recreational areas, occasionally even terrorizing tourists in state and national parks, and squeeze out other wildlife.

Pigs, Hogs & Boars: Facts About Swine

By Alina Bradford, Live Science Contributor | October 5, 2018 11:37am ET. This article was updated on Oct. 5, 2018 by Live Science Senior Writer, Mindy Weisberger.

Pigs are mammals with stocky bodies, flat snouts that can move independently of their heads, small eyes and large ears. They are highly intelligent, social animals, and are found all over the world.

Pigs are in the Suidae family, which includes eight genera and 16 species. Among those species are wild boars, warthogs and pygmy hogs and domestic pigs. Pig, hog and boar essentially describe the same animal, but there are some distinctions. A boar is an uncastrated male domestic pig, but it also means a wild pig of any gender. A hog often means a domestic pig that weighs more than 120 lbs. (54 kilograms). Pigs are also called swine.
