For 13 years, the Annual District 9 Northeast Pennsylvania Trappers Association Coyote Hunt has been bringing out hunters for cash prizes for big 'yotes. And each year, more hunters turn out for the hunt.
This year, a record 817 hunters took 53 coyotes in the Keystone State. Bill Corry took home the top prize with his 51.7-pounder, which landed him $2,250. The harvest was just six coyotes off the record, which was set in 2010.
While the hunt is mainly to curb the population, the USDA is also on hand to take samples for their research. –Brian McClintock
