If they give you permission you can. I'd do my homework before contacting them to ask for permission. See what the requirements for getting that permission are. I'm not telling you to lie to them about the circumstances, but you may be denied or granted that permission by using the right or wrong verbiage.

I would check with DNR..... If you have a season on coyote there is probably provision for taking them out of season. Check first, call second, be sure of the answer before proceeding.

That would be refered to as a depredation hunt. Culling coyotes to control a problem. Fact is, some states have contracted this work out to an ACO "animal control officers or state trappers", which would be called upon to eleviate the problem. You should contact a game warden and ask the appropiate questions. Be sure to specify "coyotes" only.

Don't be silent, stay still, or become invisable.  Thats how you save the shooting sports....You need to VOTE!

like JT said, more than likely once the DNR receives a complaint they will call in an ACO. I would have your buddy file the complaint and ask about bring in his own hunter (you). The DNR will need to hear from the land owner is these kind of situations.

I'm from the Lafayette area here in Indiana...I talked to a CO by the name of Matt Tholen, he is from the tippecanoe, Montgomery, warren, & Benton counties. He said if you are the landowner the season never ends. If you aren't the landowner you have to have written permission from the landowner on you at all times. As long as you have that you can shoot coyotes year round.

If you get on the Indiana dnr website and goto the furbearers link there's a spot for nuisance animals. If you own the land they can b taken at any time. If you don't own the land you get written permission. Id still call to confirm that with a warden. Those guys have more power than the police

You don't need to confirm that with the DNR.  I know for a fact that all you need is landowners written permission on your person while you are hunting.  I'm a hunter ed instructor, and spend countless hours with conservation officers.  Also, coyote's are the only furbearer that you can be in possession of year-round, without a special fur-bearers permit, so you don't have to waste the hide, if you are after hides.  I wish Indiana would go to a year round season, because, make no mistake, they are already a problem here.  And no, they don't have more power than the police, because they are state police officers that are employed by the DNR.  They will however check to see if you have written permission, I know this.  If it makes you feel better, call your district office, but they will tell you the same thing I just did.  I'm not trying to sound pushy to anyone, but this is one time I actually know what I'm talking about, I have to take advantage of it, ya know. :mrgreen:


BTW, where are you located?  I'm in Delaware/Henry county.  I see a lot of those little suckers.  I just wish I could stop screwing up.
