    Was just wondering if anybody had any success hunting coyotes at night. I thought about trying it but it's been hard enough killing them during the day please tell

    Calling them in is no problem, but 50 yards or closer is? That's really hard. Need a rifle

    yeah the calling is great. Its the shotgun thats the issue. They are handicapping us with the weapon restrictions. They are letting us hunt at night but not giving us the tools to do it. Shotguns are great for the woods but night hunting isn't. Shadows from scanning are easily your biggest issue here. So they give us the time of day for GREAT open field hunting but give us the weapon for the woods. Until they catch up with everyone else I'm done with night hunting.

    Same here. I can go to Ohio and hunt at night with lights/night vision and my AR.

    But you can't hunt deer with a rifle there in the daylight. Pretty stupid.

    I want to say that Ohio has changed their rules as of last year or so. They can now use rifles but it has to be a non-necked down caliber. Still dumb but a step in the right direction at least.
