Hunters are reminded that the 2005-06 small game season for pheasant, bobwhite quail, rabbit, fox and coyote opens at 8 a.m. on Saturday, November 12.

A current and valid hunting license (bow and arrow, firearm or all-around sportsman) is required to pursue any small game species. Properly licensed hunters can hunt small game with shotgun, muzzleloader or bow and arrow.

Coyote and fox are perhaps the most challenging of the state’s small game species. Their intelligence, wariness and predominately nocturnal behavior enable them to elude most sportsmen. Both utilize a variety of cover types, but generally hunt for prey species along field edges. Heavier shot sizes (#4 fine shot) are recommended for taking coyote and fox during the regular season. The majority of the coyotes harvested are taken incidentally by deer hunters during the firearm deer seasons.
The bow and arrow season for coyote and fox (open since October 1) will remain open through February 20, 2006. Firearm hunters may pursue coyote and fox from November 12, 2005 until February 20, 2006. The use of dogs is not allowed October 1 – November 11, December 5-10 and December 14.
There is no daily or season bag limit for fox. The daily bag limit for coyote is two and there is no season limit. Hunting hours are 8 a.m. to ½-hour after sunset on November 12 and from ½-hour before sunrise to ½-hour after sunset thereafter. All successful coyote hunters are reminded to report their harvest to a regional Division Law Enforcement office within 24 hours of harvest.
NOTE: Hunters may take coyote and fox while deer hunting during the Six-day Firearm, Permit Muzzleloader and Permit Shotgun seasons provided they are in possession of a valid deer transportation tag for the applicable season (e.g., before a deer is harvested). Hunters should note that a valid rifle permit is required when hunting with a muzzleloading rifle in addition to a valid firearm license.
The Special Winter Season for coyote and fox (permit only) has been extended by two weeks and is now January 16 – February 20, 2006. In addition, the maximum shot size allowable has increased from #2 fine shot to “T” shot. The permit is required for hunters who (1) use a shot size larger than #4 fine shot, (2) hunt with a muzzleloading rifle outside of the prescribed deer season, or (3) hunt at night (shotgun only). The application period for the special season is October 15-November 15. See the Fish and Wildlife Digest (p. 58) for details.
