    Can anyone tell me what year it was legal to hunt fox at night? Also what year did they stop allowing you to night hunt for fox. Thanks

    Night time fox hunting was interfering with the night time deer hunting.

    When it comes to Kentucky we are so behind on times. I can't believe it the more I learn about Ohio the more I learn how more advanced they are

    In Ohio you can hunt coyotes year around and year around hunt them at night with rifles and light . You can also use night vision

    We used to do it back in the 80s. I don't remember it being illegal but maybe we were just a bunch of outlaws? We tried the knockoff Johnny Box and .22 rifles with a Q-Beam. Killed a huge tabby tomcat at about 120 yards with a .22 Mag one night. All we could see were eyes and a yellow/orange haze around it. Buddy shot and it turned and ran over the hill... On the way out we found it. From his waist/belt, the cat hung to the ground.

    Almost fired up some coon hounds one moonlit night when the Q-Beam extension had a short in it. They were coming but the light was not flicking back on and we thought they were gonna jump in the truck with us!

    Never did kill a fox or a coyote but did miss a couple foxes.

    yes! because that is the only way it should ever be legal to hunt anything at night, if I recall its more deadly than a high powered rifle because of noise and less dangerous than buckshot because of effective range...at least thats what I learned on here a few months ago hahaha

    To my knowledge ,it’s never been legal ,to hunt foxes at night in Ky. They use to run foxes at night, chase with hounds , is all I ever remember , not kill, I might be wrong though .

    Let's make a deal if you think the deer population so great and not affected and the unlimited doe harvest isn't ruining the hunting and making less and less deer how about you hunt my spot and I'll hunt yours I won't shoot anything but a big buck. Then you will change your story .

    Out if curiosity, what is causing you to want to get into the night foxhunting game? If anything gets within 50 yards of the chicken coop its going to die regardless of time of day.

    Wait if your so positive about me being wrong then you would make a deal see you know I'm write. I'm not saying you have to hunt the whole season just a weekend and check out my facts and trail camera pictures. Heck I would be money in right
