There were nearly 30 of us standing on the side of the road--all in camo, shotguns and rifles slung on shoulders, GPS units and walkie-talkies dangling from necks, half the lot chewing tobacco, dogs whining from crates in the back of pickups--when someone hollered, "Good lord, it looks like the 101st Airborne just landed!"
He was right. To hunt coyotes with dogs it takes a crew. And as Mosquito Creek Sportsmen's Association President Ron Sartori told me in the video above, the dog crews around Frenchville, PA are some of the best in the world. All told, the group OL content editor Alex Robinson and I ran with bagged four yotes in two days.
The hunt was part of Mosquito Creek's annual coyote contest. It drew 3,541 hunters, all looking to bag the biggest animal and the $7,000 first prize.
