DOVER, Del. – Anyone who harvests a coyote in Delaware is required to report it to the Division of Fish and Wildlife within one business day.

This is not a new regulation, but DNREC is issuing a reminder.

“These reports will provide information on coyote abundance and distribution that will help guide the division’s scientific management of Delaware’s coyote population,” said Division of Fish and Wildlife Director David Saveikis.

The following is a list of other coyote hunting regulations:

  • Delaware’s coyote hunting season will be open until Feb. 29, 2016.
  • Coyote trapping season runs from Dec. 1 through March 10.
  • Coyotes can only be harvested with the following firearms: shotguns, rimfire or centerfire rifles up to .25 caliber, muzzle-loading rifles and longbows and crossbows. (During deer firearm seasons, only firearms legal for deer hunting can be used for taking coyotes.)
  • A Delaware hunting license is required to hunt coyotes.
  • Hunting hours are from a half hour before sunrise until a half hour after sunset; Sunday hunting is prohibited.
