Night hunting for coyotes, hogs, armadillos requires registration

In an effort to help control the population of hogs, coyotes, and armadillos, the state has some very liberal allowances for hunters going after the non-native animals. Baiting is perfectly legal, as is the use of electronic calls, artificial lights, and night vision. Hunters are allowed to use any legal firearm, bow, or crossbow. Anyone using a center-fire rifle must be elevated at least 10-feet off the ground.

While they are effective year-round, they can be especially effective during the cold-weather months when not a whole lot of baitfish are in the area.

 Video Included
