Jeffersonville, NY, (Sullivan County) was home-base for the 4th Annual 2011 Coyote Hunt, hosted by The Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs of Sullivan County, just completed, February 18, 19, and 20, 2011. Hunters – male, female, young, older, teens (both male and female) - entered this year, a total of over 500 hunters, from Pennsylvania and all around upstate New York, to compete for the Grand Prize, heaviest coyote weighed in over the 3-day hunt, of $2,000. There was a heaviest coyote per day prize, Junior Hunter prize (12 – 15 years old) for heaviest coyote prize, heaviest coyote by a female hunter prize, and many more. The primary purpose in the coyote hunt is to ‘raise interest in hunting coyotes as sport and as a means to control the populations, and to perpetuate hunting and fishing through our children.’ According to Warren Krum, coyote hunting today is what rabbit hunting was like 30 to 40 years ago.
