I have had a few days to kick back and relax and think up a good debate while I was on vacation....

Would you like to see a Coyote Hunting Season in your State?

I don't see the need for a season in Idaho, most coyote hunters in Idaho only hunt in prime time. There is only a hand full of depridation specialists in Idaho and if we shot coyotes everyday all year long we would never dent the population. Next question.

No I don't want to see a season. I want to be able to hunt when I want to hunt! The game commission already screws things up enough with their stupid idiotic rules and regulations around here. Doug, Have you seen what those idiots did now with the buck season??!!?? It was just in our paper yesterday!

In AZ coyotes are classified as varmits... AKA ballistic jelly. just like rats and english sparrows....

A coyote in AZ has no value, there fur is not very good, they are very small.. Ive seen other states coyotes and the fur is very nice looking. is AZ it looks like sand paper except way up north(north kaibab) and only for 2-3 months....
They do alot of damage to the antelope population, so the more that are shot the better..

I like the season just fine. Open year round, no bag limit. I just wish they would lift some of the shot restrictions here.

It wouldn't matter to me if they had a season here, I would just drive somewhere else.

Doug, here in Maine Bobcat and Fox open in Oct. Bob ends in Feb, fox ends in april. Coyote is year around and from Jan 1 to April 30 we can night hunt.

The game commission does change the Bobcat and Fox limits and season from time to time based on populations.

In Pa we have a season on foxes that runs from mid Oct to mid Feb I believe. No bag limits and night hunting is allowed. Coyotes are fair game here year round, and landowners are allowed to use whatever means necessary to control coyotes on their own farm. I'm not sure what "whatever means necessary" really means, but it sure makes the hillbillies here smile when they say that phrase.

My guess on the lack of a season limit on song dogs is partly for two reasons, one is that they can reproduce so quick and that the amount of song dog hunters is getting less and less as the years go by, this coupled with the piss poor fur prices, make it very hard to really get a handle on population control...
