Interest in coyote hunting is increasing as the predator becomes a larger presence, threatening both domestic animals and wildlife. Nationally-recognized predator hunter Tom Bechdel of Saegertown, Pennsylvania, brings his nationally acclaimed seminar and hunting tips to video for the first time. A hunter for more than 40 years, Bechdel’s coyote seminar includes information about the life of the coyote, how to find them, how and when to call coyotes, and how to use electric and mouth calls and how to use decoys.
“Within the past 10 years I have become a predator hunter in earnest,” said Bechdel. “I have a very high success rate of harvesting Eastern coyote. During any three year period I have harvested 257 coyotes in Pennsylvania and Ohio. The largest was 72 pounds, and the most I have harvested in one day is eight. During the video I will cover all 12 months of the coyote’s life, what he does, how he does it, and why. I will also tell how large a coyote can get, as well as what they will and will not eat and all ways of protecting yourself, livestock and pets. This will be time well spent to learn about your new neighbor.”
