Coyote Season

MLAAP will conduct a Coyote Season during the 2018 – 2019 Hunting Season.  It will open when deer season ends (Jan. 2019) and go through the end of February 2019.  Coyotes can be taken during this time using electronic calls in the new coyote zones.    

Coyote zones which are a combination of regular hunting zones have been created to accommodate coyotes hunting which requires a larger area. The new coyote map i.e.  “MLAAP Coyote Hunting Zone Map (during Coyote Season)” is available from The Natural Resource Office, Guard Dept., and on the hunting website, www.milanarsenalhunting.com.  Coyote zones will hold only 1 party of up to 4 hunters at a time. 

Coyotes can still be taken during any other hunting seasons (turkey, small game, deer) in which a hunter is licensed for, but only with the legal weapon for that season (bow, muzzleloader, gun).  Electronic calls are not allowed during this time and taking of coyotes will not be in the new coyote zones.   Please refer to the “2017 MLAAP Hunting Zone Map (Deer/Turkey/Small Game)” that shows zones during these seasons.    

Please Note:

  • Big game hunting and coyote (small game) hunting is not allowed in same zone at same time.
  • Scouting and Hunting are now allowed in the same zone at the same time.
