Welcome!  Here is all the information about Foxpro's New York State Predator Hunt
 

INTRODUCTION

In 2003, The Bark At The Moon Coyote Club hosted the first Western New York State Predator Hunt as a way to draw area hunters together and celebrate their hobby and passion. The contest has rapidly grown and the contest organizers are thrilled with the support they are receiving from area hunters and sponsers, both local and national. In 2012, the hunt was re-named "Foxpro's New York State Predator Hunt." It's the same great hunt with a great new name!
