Hook & Hunting: Fox and Coyote Hunting Begins

Posted: Updated:

Fox and coyote trapping season and fox hunting season begins.

Fox and coyote trapping season statewide runs from October 15th until March 1st.

Coyote may be taken on private property by a property owner or designee all year if they are doing or about to do damage on private property.

Gray and red fox hunting season statewide runs from October 15th until March 1st.

And a reminder that coyote hunting season is in full swing until April 15.

Everyone who hunts and traps furbearing animals, including those who trap or hunt on their own enclosed farmland or private property, must have a valid fur harvester license. This license allows you to hunt fox, bobcat, coyote or raccoon, and trap badger, bobcat, fisher, marten, fox, coyote, weasel, mink, raccoon, muskrat, beaver, otter, skunk or opossum.
