SC bill makes it easier to kill coyotes

  • Follow Latest News

COLUMBIA — South Carolina legislators are making what's already an open season to kill coyotes even more liberal.

The Senate gave final approval today to a bill to let the state's Department of Natural Resources issue more permits that allow a wider variety of weapons to be used to kill coyotes at night.

Hunters routinely kill coyotes during the state's open season now while hunting other game.

Coyotes are having an impact on the state's deer population. A three-year study by the Department of Natural Resources shows coyotes are responsible for most of the deaths of fawns.
