I am just getting in to coyote, fox, raccoon hunting. I was curious if anyone knows anything about Coyote hunting in Pennsylvania. I have property in Greene County right on the border of West Virginia. About 20-25 minutes from Morgantown West Virginia. And I am also looking for any Coyote hunting opportunities that anyone could suggest. I am willing to pay to have the chance to hunt for them and I really am going nuts not being able to have enough land to hunt where there is a good population. If there are any guides any landowner or hunters or all of the above that would be willing to give me an experience of a lifetime please let me know. Like I said I am willing to pay because I really have no other choice due to my location and lack of knowledge to where they are located in PA. Any suggestions or offers will be greatly appreciated!!!! Thank you very much, JASON I will be willing to travel when time permits.

Jason,

How big is the property you have?

15 acres of our own property with 100 acres of coal property and 100 plus acres ajoining ours which we can hunt if we ask. Do you have good Coyote hunting in OHIO? Another thing I wanted to know can you use rifles in OHIO for Coyote? I also have been getting involved in groundhog hunting. Is the hunting good in OHIO for groundhog? I was told you can use rifles for groundhog so I figure you can hunt Coyote with a rifle too. I am looking into hunting in different states so I can experience different terrains. One more thing in West Virginia you can use semi-automatic rifles. Are semi-automatic rifles legal for hunting in OHIO? Thank you for the help. JASON

Jason....

I would bet that you have a decent coyote population where you are. Unless you've been "lookin" for them, you will hardly ever see them. They WILL see and smell most humans LONG before they are discovered. 215 acres should allow you to get some coyote hunting in. Granted, you won't be able to set-up, call, move, and set-up again all day, like you would out west, where properties are measured in square miles instead of acres. Most of the properties we hunt are significantly smaller than what you have access to, but they are separated by as much as 10 miles. We set-up on one property once or twice, if nothing responds, we head back to the truck and drive to the next property. I would attempt to gain access to different properties, not neccessarily adjacent to what you already have. Try searching through any of the local classified sections. I've secured deer hunting properties by answering ads from people looking to have coyotes and groundhogs eliminated from their property. A coyote hunting friend of mine created business cards and posts them on any local "community" bulletin boards he can find, offering to trade "pest reduction" for deer hunting rights. Farmers that don't have the time to chase the coyotes away from the young-of-year livestock also usually don't have the time to thin the deer herd to minimize crop damage. You can easily convince them that you are doing them a favor on both fronts.

Our coyote population seems to have declined in the last year, but you CAN find them if you put in the time and effort. A slight raise in fur prices has more people trapping and hunting them. We are allowed centerfire rifles in Ohio to hunt coyote and groundhog, except on public hunting lands AFTER a certain date, and there is NO difference (in the State of Ohio's definition) between bolt action, pump action, single shot, or semi-automatic centerfire rifles. In fact, I plan to use this one this winter.


As far as actually learning to call and kill coyotes, I learned the little that I know by watching dvd's and tapes, and getting out and trying it. I also have some friends that enjoy the challenge, and we learned together. Again, try the local classified ads, even if you have to run your own, searching for an experienced hunter.
