Beavers may be hunted with guns or bows or cable-snare devices may be used, according to the state Fish and Game Department. State law restricts the type and caliber of weapons that can be used.

3. Coyote

Coyotes may be hunted with guns or bows. Fish and Game says pursuit with dogs is also allowed. There are also programs, such as the Coyote Catalog, that connect hunters with landowners who want their property to be rid of coyotes.

According to NorthernAg.NE

there were 74 landowners who signed up in 2014, which was up more than 50 percent compared to 2013, which equaled about 900 hunters.

The state agriculture department said livestock owners in North Dakota lost about $1 million to coyotes. The state Fish and Game Department has a link to sign up for the Coyote Catalog, which is active through mid-March.
