Post Do you need a license for shooting a coyote ?
Does anybody remember how the rules state for shooting a coyote...... I thought the last I heard is, you need some sort of license, small game, deer or something.... I don't think you can shoot one if you don't have some sort of license...... correct ?

By the way.... I'm talking Wisconsin..

I believe you have to have a small game license to shoot one with a gun, and it always used to be you could hunt them with a bow if you have a deer archery license. Not sure if you have a deer gun tag if that works. The book is hard to figure out anymore!

Here in Michigan you are allowed to shoot them without a license as long as your not actually hunting for them. If your using a call and trying to hunt them then you have to have one. Other wise dnr wants you to shoot them.

On your own private land you don't need a license. Otherwise I believe if you have bought some sort of license you can shoot them. The example above of having a bow deer license and one walks by you may stick him. Gun deer you can shoot them during gun season south of HWY 10 I believe. They don't want us guys up north to accidentally shoot wolves. If you are specifically hunting yotes you need a small game license. That is my interpretation of the regulations.

Thanks....... I saw one last year, about 40 yards away, I was hoping he was going to keep coming my way, but he turned and went out towards the cornfield, I suppose looking for mice or whatever.... maybe this year ! I was always wondering though if I could shoot one with an archery tag... I thought you could, but just wasn't positive about it....

I also jumped one this last spring while looking for sheds..... of course, no gun with me. :roll:

That's the way it goes. While glassing for deer I've had two unsuspecting yotes wander into gun range totally unaware I was there but no gun of course. Last yr during gun season I had two come right under my stand thanksgiving morning before legal shooting hours for deer. I was hunting a buddies farm and it was my only day to hunt there with him so I passed hoping not to spook deer. In hindsight I wish I would have dusted one or both of them.
