Researchers have long known the coyote as a master of adaptation, but studies over the past few years are now revealing how these unimposing relatives of wolves and dogs have managed to succeed where many other creatures have suffered. Coyotes have flourished in part by exploiting the changes that people have made to the environment, and their opportunism goes back thousands of years. In the past two centuries, coyotes have taken over part of the wolf's former ecological niche by preying on deer, domestic livestock and pets, including domestic dogs. Genetic studies reveal that the coyotes of northeastern America — which are bigger than their cousins elsewhere — carry wolf genes that their ancestors picked up through interbreeding. This lupine inheritance has given northeastern coyotes the ability to bring down adult deer — a feat seldom attempted by the smaller coyotes of the west. It has been said that the coyote's favorite food is anything they can chew. The coyote is a carnivore that is able to adapt to the available food supply. Coyote hunting is a year round season in West Virginia. We use electronic and reed predator calls, both day and night. Day hunts are September 1 - November 18 and day or night hunts are May 1 - July 31. You will hunt at nearly 3800 feet elevation on either a three hundred acre open high grass field with slopes on each side with easy vision of several hundred yards all around or if you prefer hardwood mountain tops, we can accommodate both styles.
Our packages are a two day or night hunt with three nights lodging at our Point Mountain Lodge, three meals per day, transportation on the hunting grounds (3000 acres) a guide, predator calls, and an adrenaline rush.
