324 coyotes killed in 2024 Carolina Coyote Classic

Carolina Coyote Classic

The Coyote Derby was won by Team Red Lights

The 11th Annual Carolina Coyote Classic took place this past weekend, and it was another amazing year for the event. Despite battling heavy rains throughout both nights of the competition, which caused most teams to lose 4 to 6 hours of hunting time each night, the teams still managed to break the 300 coyote mark again.
Thanks to John MacPherson for sending us the detailed results, which are posted below…
