    Missouri codes obviously written by an idiot with the express purpose of confusing people.

    Coyotes may be taken by hunting, and
    pelts and carcasses may be possessed, transported
    and sold in any numbers throughout
    the year; except that coyotes may not be
    chased, pursued or taken during daylight
    hours from April 1 through the day prior to
    the beginning of the prescribed spring turkey
    hunting season and may not be chased, pursued
    or taken through the prescribed spring
    turkey hunting season.




    And don't be shooting at any bullfrogs either. No lower form of life than a bullfrog poacher.


    Bullfrogs and green frogs may be taken from
    sunset, June 30 through October 31, by the
    holder of a hunting permit with a .22 caliber
    or smaller rimfire rifle or pistol, pellet gun,
    longbow, crossbow, or by hand or handnet.
    An artificial light may be used. Daily limit:
    eight (8) frogs in the aggregate; possession
    limit: sixteen (16) frogs in the aggregate.
    Only the daily limit of frogs may be possessed
    upon the waters and banks thereof
    where daily limits apply.

    Huntem,
    Congratulations, glad to see that you got your bird.

    A question - how do you handle the warm temps and keeping the meat from spoiling. Do you cut out the meat as soon as you get pictures or do you clean it and get the meat at home?

    Ian, I personally like to take care of the bird right away. I have found they are much easier to pluck soon after the shot. I don't care for skinning a bird because of the way I cook them. Unfortunately, I have lost birds due to prolong time in the warm temps. Lost meaning, I wasn't taking a chance even with proper cooking temperatures.

    Ian,
    I usually just take the breast, which can be easily removed by tearing the skin loose and filetting it out. I do this soon after pictures or if I have to go to work, I gut out the bird and hang it under the house by the feet with the body cavity packed full of ice. The next morning the breast feels like it was in a cooler.
    huntem,
    glad to see the picture! You're not hijacking the post at all.

    Just to be clear, my Kansas coyote was legally taken. In Kansas, you can hunt coyotes all year round with no limit as long as you have a hunting license.
