    Fairly new to Wyoming, only been here for 6 months, I went out coyote hunting after work tonight, on my way back I saw a few jacks. Can I shoot them at night?

    Yep. They're on the predator list.

    How are you hunting them at night? Do you use a light of some sort?

    I will probably use a spot light, last night I just saw them with my highbeams on the truck. I will probably call Game and Fish just to make sure its not that I doubt the wisdom on this forum, I just dont need to be getting in trouble.

    My parents are coming out from Michigan this May, my dad is an avid hunter and shooter like myself and I want to get some coyote, p-dog, and jack hunting and shooting in while he is here. About the only time I see Jacks is after sundown.

    Thanks for responding, so nothing magical about it sounds like just some kinda light source will do the trick.

    You can only spotlight on private land with written permission I might add.
