Annual Fall Coyote Hunt
The Sigel Sportsmen Club is sponsoring its second
fall hunt for the elusive and cunning Eastern Coyote. The coyote hunt
will coincide with Pennsylvania’s, “Regular Deer Season”, and November
27th through December 9th, 2006.
The Sigel Sportsmen Club has scheduled this unique
coyote hunt that allows deer hunters to kill unsuspecting coyotes, while
watching or hunting for their buck.
The clubs first fall hunt during the 2005 deer
season had 450 hunters registered and 25 coyote were entered at the club
during the 2-week deer season. George Wilson, President of the club,
anticipates close to 1000 hunters will enter the 2006 deer/coyote hunt.
Prize money for coyotes entered, depends on the number of hunters
entered in the hunt.
The Sigel Sportsmen Club will split the hunt
registration fee of $10 dollars, 50/50. Fifty percent of the
registration will be divided equally between successful hunters.
Club members will be at the club each evening from
6-8 PM following the opening of deer season, to process coyotes that are
entered. Hunt rules require a coyote to be processed within 36 hours and
the final day to process a coyote is Sunday December 9th,
between noon and 2PM, at the clubhouse, one mile north of Sigel on route
