    One big reason that most do not hunt and shoot coyotes this time of year , it is very cruel to let young pups starve as they are still nursing and killing by accident the mother , is morally wrong ! but there are those that do not care.
    However how many fawns can you save right now by shooting a yote. If one goes for my turkey decoy he or she toast. That litter of pups is more fawn killers....

    Season for coyotes is open all year round.
    Also if you have been given permission on a farm with the understanding that coyotes that are seen are to be shot, don't be surprised if you don't do it that the farmers find someone who will.

    The only good coyote is a dead coyote ! That's why there is an open season on them.
    Good Luck & Good Hunting !

    Who said wasting meat. There is a penalty under F&W for letting a hide of a fur bearing (wolf or coyote) rot.

    Kinda like the guys who catch Northern Pike and throw them on the ice for the eagles. If you don't use the coyote pelts don't shoot them.

    Also, coyote season is open year round but a small game permit is not valid during summer months. ie: June 15 to opening of rabbit.

    Chris down here in the south half small game is good all year also as for the pelt only if has market value so at this time of year the pelt has no value esp if there is any mange so you not going to be charged with wasting the pelt

    Small game licenses are valid down here,Chris,and Coyote is open all year for a reason. They're classed as varmints and farmers want them shot on sight,especially sheep and cattle operations. The damage is unbelievable and insurance companies only cover a nominal flat rate amount per animal,so,if their prize breed bull or ram gets hamstrung and has to be put down if it's not killed outright,the insurance company will only pay about $50 after anything they may get from the township (usually bugger-all). We all know what happens to insurance rates after several claims,don't we? This time of year,pelts are worthless. No charges are ever going to be laid,so,we whack every one we see.

    There is not better time for animal control than now. Sentiment aside there is no right time for an animal to die.
