Hunting coyotes in Nebraska is a constant challenge, as Chris Pokorny’s preparations reveal all too well.

Coyote Hunt

Each year, Chris Pokorny and his friends visit the Sandhills to hunt coyotes. Here are a few additional images from their trip out west.

  1. Great pics. I’m an Iowa resident interested in coyote hunting in Nebraska in September. Can you recommend which areaswould be better than others during this time? I plan to spend a week day and night hunting. Any suggestions on location and any other advice would be much appreciated. Thanks,

  2. These are some great photos!
