Nighttime Coyote Hunting Approved in Kansas

Hunters in Kansas now will be able to pursue coyotes at night with artificial light and thermal-imaging equipment beginning in 2021.

The proposal was approved in August on a 5-2 vote by the Kansas Wildlife, Parks and Tourism commissioners.

It didn't come without an attached fee, however, along with some stipulations.

Hunters would have to purchase a "Night Vision Equipment Permit," which costs $2.50, to use any artificial light, scopes and equipment that amplify visible light, and thermal-imaging scopes and thermal-imaging equipment. 

Also, hunters must follow the following restrictions:

— Use of this equipment will be permitted from Jan. 1 to March 31 only;

— Use of this equipment will be permitted for hunting coyotes only;

— Use of a vehicle when hunting with this equipment is prohibited;

— Use of this equipment will not be permitted on department lands and waters, including WIHA and iWIHA properties.

The new Night Vision Equipment Permit will be valid beginning Jan. 1, 2021.

Until then, hunters must observe all current laws and regulations pertaining to the use of special equipment and hunting coyotes.
