Woodbury to host second annual coyote hunt

| February 18, 2014

COSHOCTON – Coyote populations have almost quadrupled in the last 20 years. Data from ODNR Wildlife division reports that since 1990, the measured sightings of coyote by 1,000 hours has gone from under five to almost 20. With this exploding population as well as being a menace to small and medium sized pets and livestock, hunting coyote has become a popular and appreciated activity.

Woodbury Outfitters is answering the call. Woodbury Outfitters will have its second annual coyote hunt from Feb. 23 until March 2. Two-man teams need $50 to register. The number of entries determines the amount of the 100% cash payout. As a special bonus, FoxPro Game Calling Systems is expected to donate prizes for winners as well. Additional contests such as Big Dog and Little Dog will be available to enter also.

In addition to the annual hunt, a representative from FoxPro Game Calling Systems will be on-site at each Woodbury Outfitters location to present a free educational seminar. The seminar will provide insight in the effective strategies as well as the newest technologies for a productive hunting. Seminars will be at 6 p.m., Feb. 27 at St. Clairsville, 6 p.m., Feb. 28 at Coshocton, and 10 a.m., March 1 at Jeffersonville.
