The Game Commission released the new hunting and trapping seasons today. The biggest change I saw was the split bobcat season. Trapping first then hunting. I guess this is for people who run dogs.

COYOTES: No closed season. Unlimited. Outside of any big game season (deer, bear, elk and turkey), coyotes may be taken with a hunting license or a furtaker license, and without wearing orange. During any big game season, coyotes may be taken while lawfully hunting big game or with a furtaker’s license.
