    HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania has all but declared open season on the wily coyote. The Pennsylvania Game Commission has ruled that beginning Feb. 20, furbearer hunters and trappers, especially those pursuing coyotes, will be able to take advantage of new tools provided through recent changes in the Game and Wildlife Code (Title 34). Under the new law, the list of legal methods and devices was amended to allow licensed hunters and trappers to use any natural or manmade nonliving bait used to attract coyotes; any electronic or mechanical devise used to attract coyotes; and any decoy used in the trapping or hunting of furbearers.
