I ask this question because a couple years ago I drove down to the White Clay Clay Creek State Park to scout. It is land owned by the State DCNR and is not a Gameland. I noticed a sign that said that only Archery and Muzzleloader hunting was permitted and for deer only. My question is if it's state owned land do they have the authority to restrict species and weapons types? What happens if you blast a coyote? What law are you breaking?

I would imagine since it's a state park they do.
There are some state parks where hunting and trapping are not allowed at all. Or where both are limited to a certain amount of people.

Absolutely they have the authority. Just take a look at the Presque Isle regs. Deer hunting only if approved for herd reduction, waterfowl from blinds only, all other game animals absolutely no hunting.
