Hunting in Nevada: 5 Things to Know About Urban Coyote Hunting in Cities and Suburbs

By    |   Wednesday, 03 June 2015 10:09 AM

Hunting in Nevada can occasionally include urban and suburban areas. Because of urban development, which encroaches upon natural habitat, and abundant breeding that causes overpopulation, conflicts about space occur between man and animal. In many areas of Nevada and other states some animals are considered nuisances and threats to families, especially those living near wild lands.

Questions about hunting in urban and suburban areas should be directed to the county sheriff's office. Here are some more things to know about hunting in Nevada cities and suburbs.

1. Permission to hunt in populated areas is only given when a need arises to clear an area of nuisances, so don't think that animals that come into your backyard are fair game. Animals commonly seen invading neighborhoods include bear, deer, mountain lions, coyotes, and even rabbits, and several municipalities have developed plans to control animal populations and protect citizens.

2. One of the most threatening of unprotected species is the coyote. These carnivores search for food in various environments, including neighborhoods that attract the animals with uncovered trash sites and pets. The coyotes see these as food, and commonly attach cats and small dogs wherever they can find them. Coyotes are not usually a threat to people, but small children should never be left alone where coyotes are known to exist.

3. Hunters who sell fur need a trapping license, regardless of how the animals are caught. This applies to animals harvested from public or private grounds, including urban areas.

4. Use of firearms in urban and suburban areas is strictly regulated. Before hunting in these areas, check with the local sheriff's office for information about permits, restrictions, and so on.

5. Coyotes are considered unrestricted for hunting in Nevada, and they can be pursued anytime throughout the year.

Check the Nevada Department of Wildlife's (NDOW) website for information.
