    Dont really know what (enrolled) means, unless its passed and all that's left to do is the governor sign it and the KDFW review and mandate it.

    Everyone chime in...

    I agree. Sounds like its basically a done deal. Can't wait.

    I don't know any details, but I'm ready to go! When we do find out all the details, we gotta go! I've got several places to hunt.

    Well, my 2 cents worth is this bill is a possible way to "crack the door open" on useful Night Hunting.
    Hunting with a shotgun without a light doesn't seem very useful to me.
    We need "Texas Rules"

    I've not been following the bill or the regs surrounding it. But are you saying if passed, it will be allowed without the use of light? If so, I'm with you, that doesn't seem useful to me as well. How in the hell are you gonna see anything unless they restrict it to the color lights that mount on top of a scope?

    I think at first it was no lights allowed but it was amended to allow artificial light.

    As the poster above was amended to allow the use of lights.

    HB 60 (BR 285) - F. Steele, S. Rudy, S. Santoro, J. York
    AN ACT relating to hunting coyotes.
    Create a new section of KRS Chapter 150 to allow hunters to take coyotes without bag limitation year round; allow hunters to hunt coyotes at night using shotguns that are 10-guage or smaller and bait or electronic calls to attract the coyotes.


    HCS - Delete original provisions of HB 60; amend KRS 150.360 to allow coyotes to be taken at night with or without use of light as provided in administrative regulation promuglated by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources

    Good deal. Use of lights when there's fewer leaves on trees, and the deer aren't carrying antlers.. Win for safety and makes it harder on poachers... Hope it passes. I can see pretty good with my 870 fiber optic sights on a bright night at shotgun ranges.
