Can I persue raccoon with hounds in unit 71 even though there is no current persuit season for big game open in that unit?

Answer: 

Raccoons are classified as a predatory wildlife species and therefore the take season for them is year round. You may use dogs to hunt/pursue raccoons. The owner and/or handler and/or person taking raccoons must have a hound hunter permit.
