Just want confirmation as I couldn't find what I want I wanted in the digest.

To hunt coyotes during our regular firearms deer season without a furbearers license, a hunter needs to have in his possession a valid, unused antlered tag? If that correct? If correct, what about used antlered but still a valid unused antler less tag?

I was having a discussion with a fella during deer season and wanted to know for sure.

Thanks.

book says "while lawfully hunting big game" if you don't have furtakers, so yes I'd say you have to have an used tag.

That is how I see it but the tag has to be unused. One could not hunt for coyotes without a furbearers with a used deer tag.

For some reason I thought that was the deal as well. Had to be unused antlered but the digest now just says "while lawfully hunting big game" so I would take it mean, unused buck or doe would be ok.

I have no idea why all these guys speculate when they are just guessing.

If you are coyote hunting during general firearms deer season legal hours you need a valid unused tag for that season or a furtakers license.

If it is 1st week buck only you need an unused buck tag or if is the combined season you would need either a buck tag or an antlerless tag.

When i was in Colorado i asked about that if i would tag out on elk could i get a small agme lic. for yotes since i seen a pack of 7 at one time. You could but you only could use up to a 23 caliber which i never heard of. There reason so you wouldnt be there with a 300 rum being temped to shoot another elk.
