    We’re thinging about an out of state Coyote hunt. Maybe some of you guy’s could chime in on any regulation for your state. We have the proper weapons for a humane kill, .257 and .308

    Just trying to get a feel for different states and what furbearers are legally hunted with an air gun. Mainly looking for Coyote, Red Fox Grey Fox and Bobcat.

    Does your state require written permission or just verbal. If you know your out of state licence fee is, that would be great too.

    thanks

    In Arizona for any of the game mentioned a .22 caliber or larger air rifle is required. As for the license fees it is a little funny. You can purchase a non- res. hunting / fishing combo $160.00 good for a year or short term hunt / fish combo for $20/day. There are no special tags required for fox / Coyote or Bobcat. There are legal seasons for fox and bobcat. Coyotes are legal year round. Bobcat and fox season is from August 1st though March 31st. Check on bag limits for specific areas in the state where you would plan on hunting. You can also hunt for mountain lion year round in Arizona. There are bag limits for certain areas. You are also required to use an air rifle in .35 caliber or larger. You are required to buy a $15.00 non permit tag for lions and any harvest is required to be reported within 48 hours to state fish and game officials. No spotted kittens or females with spotted kittens can be taken. That’s the basic information. However you would be wise to check for any further regulations for any specific are you plan on hunting. You can contact the Indian reservations directly for any requirements for hunting on any reservation. Their fees and regulations are completely separate from those of the rest of the state.

    An out of state small game hunting license is required in New Mexico which costs $65. Any airgun may be used (.177 included) for non game animals, and non game species. Obviously, humane FPE should be used. These include coyotes, skunks, rabbits, hares, ground squirrels, prairie dogs, Himalayan Tahr, and porcupines. And of course feral hogs. 

    Most of the feral hogs here in New Mexico, are located in the southeast quadrant, and for the most part, on private land. The feds and state wildlife guys have done their job in reducing the numbers state-wide. As a result, the Texas hill country offers better hog hunting. About the only place better for hogs is Florida.

    WA,  rat’s & squirrel pretty much, however Coyote ARE on the “unclassified wildlife ” in WA State so you may beat them, shoot them whatever but you will still need a permot, sorry no idea the cost but that would be the best Fur animal here w/airgun.

    Air rifles permitted in Ohio, no restrictions, save for during deer season. Here’s the page;  http://wildlife.ohiodnr.gov/hunting-trapping-and-shooting-sports/hunting-trapping-regulations/allowable-hunting-equipment
    Many other species listed on the same page. No morning doves with air guns though. But fox, pigs, possum, raccoon, etc are.
