If you are hunting coyotes or other non-big-game animals in a short-range weapons hunt, do you still have to use a short-range weapon?


There are no weapon restrictions for coyotes because they are not classified as a big game animal in Idaho.  Coyotes are classified as predatory wildlife like a raccoon, skunk or jackrabbit.  Be aware that if you are contacted by an officer they may have questions about what game you are pursuing.
