quotes from the WA big game reg booklet

Quote:
Forest grouse & unclassified wildlife (including coyote) may be hunted with either a small game license or a big game license.
Quote:
Statewide, open year round
If hounds are used, season is:
Sept. 2, 2008 - Mar. 15, 2009
(Except year round with hounds in Adams,
Benton, Franklin, & Grant counties)
Quote:
Bobcat, raccoon, and coyote may be hunted at night during established bobcat and raccoon seasons, EXCEPT that: it is unlawful to hunt any
wildlife at night or wild animals with dogs (hounds) during the months of September, October, or November in any area open to a centerfire rifle
deer or elk season.

Cool. One of my customers has invited me--on several occasions--to go shoot coyote with him. I just may take him up on it.

Any rifle recommendations?

.204, 22-250, 222, 220swift, 223 all are good roungs amongst a few others.

308 overkill if you are keeping fur not worth the time.

skill, and having a rifle that shoots 1/4" groups makes it easier.

Don't shot my Coyote

I have a pet coyote so if you see her please don't shoot her.
I have 10 acres out in King County and my coyote wears a yellow vest.
So you can't miss her.

Holy shit guys, I thought the white tail hunter in Texas were over compensating shooting 120lb deer with 7mm's. Use a .38 lever gun and have fun.

Don't shoot my Coyote or my Alaskan Malamute

http://www.dogcentral.info/wp-conten...og-puppy-1.jpg

ESPECIALLY during hunting season, I put a yellow reflective vest on my Coyote and my Alaskan Malamute. Last year, some dumbass actually thought my Alaskan Malamute was a wolf and tried shooting her with a .410

Lucky for me and my Malamute, he was a sh*ty shooter and only fired off 2 rounds before I snatched his shotgun from him.
