East Coast Predator Hunting with Freddie McKnight. A frequent seminar speaker, McKnight has spoken at more than a dozen major sports shows in the East, as well as many smaller events, wild game meals and sportsmens events. He is also a regular speaker at Cabelas in Hamburg, sharing with hunters his tricks for hunting and fishing.
With the continual growth in the interest of predator hunting, in particular the eastern coyote, this has been Freddie McKnight’s most popular seminar for the last fifteen years. McKnight will take the attendees through the step by step process he uses to harvest these furbearers each year. Covered are topics such as scouting, equipment, use of scents, call placement, types of calls to use, shooting tips, landowner relations, and much more. McKnight encourages the attendees to ask their specific questions throughout the presentation. This interaction with the audience ensures that the attendees go away from the presentation with a greater knowledge to apply to their own hunts. Freddie will give a presentation on Eastern Coyote Predator Hunting at 5 p.m. Friday & Saturday.
Kurt Thomas, owner of Kurt Thomas Fly Fishing, began a lifetime of fly fishing at the age of eight while exploring the waters of Pennsylvania’s north central woods. He spent his formative years (which continue to this day) connecting with his beloved Clarion River, many tributary streams, and the hard fished limestone trout streams of central Pennsylvania. Kurt’s curiosities with trout behavior in flowing waters quickly influenced his fishing approaches. He intently studied how the mechanics of human touch affected his fishing success. The realities of fly drift reshaped the philosophies of fly fishing for him beyond what was typical. Tremendous successes built Thomas a reputation for fooling very large brown trout with incredible regularity that spread across the region. Kurt will offer fly-fishing demonstration on Friday at 2 p.m.
