    I think the use of night vision is the other alternative

    Shewww...good. I was worried I wouldn't be able to use my Chinese Military B3295 sectional 51 X-Mark, hydro bulb, flex capacitor glass for night hunting yotes.

    Well it says that it will be put into effect 90 days from the last meeting or whatever. But if I'm understanding correctly it will already be too late to use a light in 2013. If I'm wrong please let me know... Needless to say if I'm right I'm a little disappointed.

    Here's what's confusing to me: the bill summary explicitly says that at night hunting is with shotguns, but the bill itself does not restrict night hunting to shotguns. The bill does however say that the coyote hunting at night must be regulated by a KAR.

    Was there some off-the-record agreement between KDFWR and legislators to agree to not limit the bill provided KDFWR would limit night hunting to shotguns only? The KAR is not written but already it is well established it will limit the use of ammo to shot shells.

    Is there some other general KRS 150 regulation that restricts single projectile at night? Night hunting other game allows rimfire 22s and muzzleloading rifles

    It would be nice to get the bill signed so we can go do it.

    Even if its signed it won't become law until Jan 2014 because it isn't emergency legislation IIRC. But it will become law unless he vetos within 10 days after receiving it. But even still it requires administrative regulation so if that isn't implemented I'd presume the law can't take effect either until the KAR is done.

    KDFWR says no slugs or single projectiles will be permitted.

    If it becomes law, it goes into effect 90 days after the end of the legislative session in which it becomes law, too late oft this year since the night season is 2/1 thru 5/31 only.

    You are correct and here is the "Law" that was passed.

    (6) Coyotes may be taken at night with or without the use of lights or other means designed to make wildlife visible at night, as established by administrative regulation.

    This is correct.

    The way I read this,
    http://fw.ky.gov/pdf/wildlifeagenda030813.pdf

    We will be allowed to night hunt June 1 through January 31,but can't use lights or night vision...Is this correct?
    Also does anyone know what they decided about having to buy a permit?
