My roomate and I went out shooting past St. Rose(Las Vegas) this weekend and had a great time. We went back to a spot we were at a couple weeks back so we could clean up the mess we left in a pile. I forgot the trash bags then. We were able to bring everything we left and what we brought this time so we felt good about that.

When we arrived there was a jack rabbit in the area that ran off. This got us looking around for some more. After running into two more and missing both times it got me thinking about the aftermath and what we would do with it after. Neither one of us knows anything about extracting the meet or the fur. Is it considered bad to leave jacks and coyotes after shooting them even though they are considered pests? Is there some place in town to take them to for cleaning and stuff? Got any tips on going after these fast suckers?

I asked about this when I bought my hunting license the other day, and the clerk told me that to even TOUCH the coyote carcass I must have a trapping permit (otherwise its a felony).

I still want to check into what he said, but I know its perfectly to shoot 'em and leave 'em lay.

Thanks for the replies. I definately do not want diseased meat so I will just confirm the kill and move on if they dont outrun me.

you only have to have a trapping license if you sell the fur.

the only time a trappers permit is needed for coyotes is if your are planning on TRAPPING them or if you plan to sell the hides. Wal-Mart employees (in the sporting goods department at least) dont know shit about the products they sell let alone the F&G laws.

DO NOT EVER......EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER LISTEN TO A THING THE GUN CLERKS AT WALMART SAY.

I hope you got a good look at the guy because you were delaing with a true idiot. They come in many forms, liberals, anit-gun nuts, American Shooters Supply employees, and now you have experienced the true Walmart idiot.

Does Enstien really think that LE is going to charge you with a damn FELONY because you shot a coyote? I'm mean really, come on now. With all the shit you see on the news, does Mr. I'm an informed expert Walmart employee really think a dead coyote is real high up on the priority list of Metro?

Besides that he is just plain wrong. you can shoot coyotes all day long. Check the regs, it is there in plain English for all to see. He does read and speak English, correct?

Hahaha... Seriously..the "trained professionals" at just about ANY place you get your license at is not going to know jack.

Duly noted.

I know better and that I should read the regs for myself.

For the record, it was a Clerk at the Ace Hardware in Gardnerville.

They have a whole counter dedicated to selling hunting licenses, so I figured it would have been better than Wally World.

....... guess not

I don't think Metro has anything to do with the Coyote thing. If an investigation was to take place the Nevada Department of Wildlife/Fish and Game would investigate. The F&G officers have LE and arrest powers so they would probably not need Metro unless a very serious crime was committed, or the animal was shot near an urban or residential area etc....

And Fish and Game also can get around certain warrant requirements because the evidence is easily destroyed.
