Hi:

I was reading the hunting regulations and I see that you CANNOT use a centerfire rifle to hunt fox and coyote during any open season for deer or bear in any area that does not allow the use of centerfire rifle for hunting deer or bear. In other words, areas that does not allow centerfire rifles for hunting deer or bear. The deer season in my area runs from about the middle of October to about the middle of December. Does this regulation also apply to people that want to hunt fox and coyote on their own land? What about if they want to hunt fox and coyote on a friend's land? Would the no centerfire rifle regulation apply there too?

Thanks,

coyote trapper: I believe the regulation applies, regardless. Hunting private lands with landowner permits or on a group permit doesn't allow the use of centerfire rifle in shotgun/pistol only areas.

Note that pistol is allowed, and would you believe that Encores and Contenders are considered pistols. If you shoot one of those or have access to one, there ya go. HTH. Mikey.

Hopefully the "shotgun only" areas will shrink in 2006.

I have mixed feelings about...but my 65 swede is all for it :grin:

I hunt in shotgun/pistol only (putnam county) And you cannot use a centerfire rifle during deer season even for fox or coyote.But after deer season you can use your rifle for varmints.

...Sure enough...NO centerfires in the woods during deer season in areas where "shotgun only" is enforced...
