Are you required to remove killed predators?

If you are coyote hunting and you do kill one, are you required to remove the animal or can you leave it? Also, same question for carp? Thank you.

Answer

Coyotes are classified as predators and carp are classified as a unprotected nongame fish. Both can be left in the field. 

Hunters are required to remove and care for the edible meat of big game animals, except black bears, mountain lions, and gray wolves.
