    I must be missing something entirely.House Bill 60 introduced by legislator Fitz Steele (Democrat of Hazard) would enable a hunter to kill an unlimited number of coyotes.Unless I am very confused I see no reason whatsoever for this bill.Anyone know anything different that would see this as something that should be done? Or is this another case of a misinformed legislator entering a bill without checking everything out?

    It talks about the bill in the last paragraph of the article.

    I thought a hunter could already kill an unlimited number of coyotes.

    This bill would also allow hunting at night with a light and shotgun

    I hope it passes. I know there's a bunch on here who don't want it for different reasons. But I see no problems safety wise, with it being restricted to shotguns, which is what I've always said it would take to get it considered. I have a spot where fox, yotes and cats frequent, but only at night and would the first place I'd night hunt.

    Are you sure about using a light? I read that it says no artificial light is to be used but I may be misunderstanding the language of the proposed bill.It also says that hunting can be done over bait.
