Can you hunt coyote right now with modern gun or just archery?

    Just wondering if it is only archery for coyote or if you could use modern gun... Thanks.

    On private land you can use anything during coyote season. On WMAs a few have weapons restrictions but for most you can hunt coyote with rifles during any open coyote season.

    From what I understand, you can hunt WMAs after modern gun deer season with rimfires and shotguns with T shot or smaller. Like 7413 said, on private land, you can use centerfire rifles .30 caliber and smaller. Shotguns are limited to T shot and smaller state wide unless hunting during a modern gun deer season.

    No, you can use high powered stuff during any open coyote season (including during bow deer season) unless that WMA has a specific restriction or some WMAs are closed to all hunting except those with deer quota permits during modern gun. . Check the general furbearer hunting part of the agfc guidebook. Coyote and Deer seasons are totally separate issues.
