Laws on Coyotes and Fox

Recommended Posts

Coach1310

Hello all. A guy I work with is having some problems with a pair of coyotes chasing and spooking his horses. He has had similar problems with a fox too. Is it legal to shoot them? Do you need a small game license or some kind of tag? Is there a season? I am an avid deer hunter and fisherman, but this is a little out of my element so I figured I would ask the experts for him! Thanks

Blaze away at the coyotes - They are an un-protected animal.

As long as you are a resident you do not need a license (I'm not sure about non-residents)

Woody is right, coyotes are a non-regulated species, which means shoot on sight. Residents do not need a license, your deer rifle would be perfect on these coyotes. Just make sure of what is behind your target.

Thanks for all the info. I think we will attempt to take care of the coyotes in the coming weeks as they have been around at least a couple nights a week for a while. If I need some help rooster.. I will let you know. Thanks again for the info. Looks like I will be checking my rifle scope again!!

Can a person hunt coyotes with a rifle state wide? Does the shogun/rifle line used in deer hunting come into effect?

you can use a rifle generally state wide, other than within local jurisdictions or municipalitys banning firearms discharge. there is no shotgun/rifle boundary for predators/varmits/uncontrolled animals otherwise.

I know that some cities or townships require a permit to discharge a firearm. I ran into this last year and after applying for the permit which was free i recieved the permit from the deputy the next day and the permit lasts a year.

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore
