1. Crows

There are three seasons for hunting crows in Connecticut. The season that extends into the summer runs from Aug. 8 to Oct. 9. During this period, crows can only be hunted on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Hunters are allowed to take as many crows as they want both on a daily and seasonal basis.

Those hunting crows from a blind or a stationary position in Connecticut do not have to follow the state’s fluorescent orange requirement. This regulation states that anyone hunting from Sept. 1 to the last day of February must wear a certain amount of fluorescent orange clothing that is visible from all sides with just a few exceptions.

2. Woodchuck

A variety of smaller game that has a rather large population, woodchucks can be hunted during several different periods throughout the year in Connecticut. Dates ranging from early summer to the middle of the fall mark the summer season which runs from June 1 to Oct. 9. There are no limits to the number of woodchucks that can be hunted on a daily or seasonal basis. There are no regulations specific to hunting woodchucks other than having the proper licenses and permits for the weapons used to hunt.

3. Coyote

Coyotes can be hunted in Connecticut for most of the year except during the month of May. This period of closed season coincides with the animals' mating and birthing season. As the species is invasive, there is no daily or seasonal limit to the number of coyotes a hunter can take. However, whenever a coyote is hunted, the kill must be recorded online or by telephone or the pelt must be tagged. Failure to meet one of these three alternatives makes the kill illegal.
