coons and possums can be hunted at night

Coyote pupping season starts in April. Why would they end night hunting just prior to the females giving birth? This is an invasive species that needs to be exterminated, not regulated to conserve the resource like game animals and migratory birds.

Tinfoil types dont think coyotes were introduced for deer, it was for nutria. If you believe such rumors.
Groundhogs and nutria are also year round

Maybe you should ask. They are not trying to "conserve" coyotes (based on discussions with Park Rangers), there are other practical considerations to hunting seasons esp at night when the days get longer.

Furbearers permit is a requirement.

Firearms season is a whitetail deer season.

Urban myth in this area is they were introduced on APG ( aberdeen proving ground) to control the deer population on post. I've also read where USFW claims they managed to cross the Mississippi River barrier by migrating through Canada then down. How them critters never figured out how to do that until the last 30 years or so is a bit puzzling.

I believe the resident goose population will fall incredibly fast. And therefore, the 'yote population will climb out of control.

Whether it's being done for conservation or because they don't like the idea of hunters in the woods after dark after March, the outcome is the same..where the yote population should be as close to zero as possible, these regulations allow for renewing the resource and it shouldn't be.

The DNR likes to create stupid regs based on the notion that most hunters would use or exploit any opportunity to violate the law..like did you know if you shoot a deer and have to track it after dark and when you find it alive you are forbidden to put it out of it's misery? Because the DNR believes that hunters would exploit this to hunt deer after dark...ridiculous.. (also another reg I won't abide by)
