We hunt coyotes year round. Coyotes are considered a predatory animal in Wyoming and therefore no license is required to hunt them.
If your after a good coyote pelt, fall and winter are the best times to hunt. Our ranches range from 7000 to 8500 feet elevation. The higher elevation and cold climate enhances the quality of the coyote pelts. During the winter season the hides are thick and in beautiful condition. When the snow is right, snowmachine hunts are a great way to find coyotes.
We also hunt coyotes at night. It is legal in Wyoming to spotlight for predators on private land. Coyotes are more active, and do most of their hunting during the night. Hunting coyotes under the cover of darkness is an exciting way to see and take this predator.
Prairie Dogs can be a challenge for any skilled marksman. How far can you shoot? Hunting is best in early summer, a few weeks after the new hatch.
