Does anyone out there see a good reason at all that we are not allowed to hunt predators at night? Its not like we are low on Coyotes in this state. The turkeys are practically gone in my area. Bobcats, Fox, and coyote numbers are higher than I have ever seen in my lifetime. Coons are thick too. AGFC says there are not enough predator hunters to justify changing the law. If the law was changed the number of predator hunters would increase rapidly. Most other states in the US allow it so what is the big deal? The AGFC also claims that we dont need to be wasting coyotes needlessly. Well how come we can hunt hogs at night and waste them needlessly. It says right in the hunting manual to shoot hogs and leave them laying if you want. So what is the real reason we are not allowed to night hunt for predators. Also AGFC biologists claim that night hunting wouldnt even put a dent in the coyote population and will even make them raise more young. Now im going to be honest Ive never hunted coyotes, but ive been wanting to get into it for years and if it were legal to do it at night I would have started a long time ago. Ive shot several coyotes when I was out deer hunting mostly, but in the dead of winter it would be nice to go out and hunt. I just think more people would likely be successful and interested if they could hunt them at night. I know the AGFC is going to holler about spotlighting deer. But i say if someone is going to spotlight deer they will do it anyway. Coyote hunting has nothing to do with it. If it was Rimfire and shotgun only that would probably make most people happy. There is coyote sign everywhere around my food plot. I killed one coyote there this deer season. When I put out game cameras I get just as many pics of coyotes as I do deer almost. The deer numbers are way down in that spot. I think the deer are just avoiding that area because of so much coyote traffic. I am going to start hunting coyotes soon. Im sure I can take some in the daytime, but it would sure be nice to hunt them at night.
