North Dakota outdoors: Specialist discusses coyote hunting and trapping
In this week’s segment of North Dakota Outdoors, Mike Anderson sits down with furbearer biologist Stephanie Tucker and talks coyote hunting and trapping.
BISMARCK — Coyote hunting and trapping are extremely popular in North Dakota.
“It's definitely our most abundant furbearer in North Dakota, and on top of that, we've had decent coyote prices for the last several years in the fur market," says Stephanie Tucker, furbearer biologist for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. "And so, the interest has just been through the roof for coyote harvest in general for trappers and hunters.”
Tucker says the coyote season is open year-round because hunters and trappers don’t have any impact on the population from one year to the next.
