Does anyone know a fish & wildlife officer that you could talk to about looking into allowing night hunting coyotes with a airgun ? The state allows day time hunting for coyotes with a air gun but not night hunting . In every state I know of the air gun community has had great success with coyotes using night vision and a air rifle . Today's air rifles are very different than most people realize ,they are very powerful with more than enough fpe to kill a coyote out to 50 yards . The good thing about a air gun is that they are all most silent with the built in silencers they have now from the factory's . The pellets fired from the gun only travel a 100 yards before they hit the ground unlike center fire or rim fired bullet so it makes shooting very safe for the surrounding areas . Today's air rifles are very accurate I'm talking 1/2 inch groups at 100 yards with a good scope attached . Along with 30 fpe and up according to the pellet size that range from .177 to 50 caliber . With a night vision system attached to the gun you can drop a group of coyotes without them running off . The sound from the air rifle does not spook them so when one is down you move to the next one and so on . Coyotes in KY are getting populated and its out of control . I have sent emails to the fish and game for years telling them about night hunting coyotes with a air gun but nothing as been done about it . If someone has some pull please let them know that if they would allow air guns to be used with night vision attached for night coyote hunting this over populated coyote problem would be under control in no time . For some reason they don't seem worried about it coyote taking over KY . There are thousands of KY airgunners waiting to go out at night with night vision attached ready to make a difference in the coyotes in KY . Just make it legal so we can get to work . Watch this video as you can see a air gun is a good way to drop coyotes in their tracks and not wake up the neighbors and kill more coyotes in one hunt .
