Hunters bag 58 coyotes in northeastern Pennsylvania hunt

TUNKHANNOCK — Hunters have bagged 58 coyotes during an annual hunt in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Organizers say 841 hunters participated in the Northeastern Regional Coyote Hunt, which ended Sunday and is in its 13th year. It's organized by District 9 of the Pennsylvania Trapper's Association.

The heaviest coyote taken during the three-day hunt weighed nearly 47 pounds and was taken in Susquehanna County. That county also produced the most coyotes - 16. Seven coyotes were taken in Luzerne County.

District 9 director Bill Kalinauskis says the conditions for the hunt were excellent this year, especially with snow in some areas.

Last year, 817 hunters bagged 53 coyotes.
