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.
