I live in Lower Bucks county about 10 minutes from NE Philly. Yes there are coyotes here and yes if there's cover they're in city limits.

If there is game there for you to hunt coyotes will be there for that food.Use your crossbow and obey safety zones.Hunt 24/7.Hope you have a call.There is probably more than one on the property.

Check the on-line hunting regs and then touch base with the SE Game Commission. As D. Boone said "Make sure you are right and then go ahead."

As long as you are hunting within the hunting laws and regs, you can hunt anywhere in the state if you have permission to do so. You can hunt and discharge firearms as well if you are 150 from other occupied buildings. You can be within 150 yards of a occupied building if you have permission by its owner. Archery it is 50 yards.

Game laws supersede local ordinances or laws when it comes to hunting. If you are on private property, and have permission to hunt, you can hunt and discharge a firearm as long as you are hunting within the game laws.

Roxborough/ Andorra?? I would in NO WAY shoot a firearm there. Plus not many places if any you'll be 150 yds away. You drop the hammer on a firearm in Phila. County. You'd better have a good attorney. It says right in the game reg book, NO firearms in Phila!

The game law say bow and arrow for big game In philly! You can use a shotgun as long as you follow the safety zones! I would suggest you speak directly with the game warden for philly to verify before you do anything!

The truth is Archery is only for big game, But as 25ft. says you will have the entire 5th district on you if you fire a shot. You would not be breaking the law but you will be going to court to exonerate yourself.

In Philly County game laws say bow and arrow only for big game. The point I was making that even in areas that have local ordinances against discharging firearms, game laws supersede those ordinances. Follow the game laws and have permission.

This is correct! State game laws supercede local laws, but be prepared to be questioned. Make sure your within the law.
