    Sounds like a good excuse to pick up a 10mm semi auto handgun.

    (Or at least that's how I would justify buying another gun).

    Wow. All I did was ask a simple question and I get a bunch of flak. Fuck you. Time to pack up and move back south.

    Sad this is the state this country was founded in and this is your attitude? Full participation in Harrisburg more than ever?

    Go suck on the tail pipe of a running bus.

    Fuck you and the bitch of a mother who gave birth to your sorry ass. Should have got herself a pet monkey instead. Would have been more meaningful than you.



    To those who contributed meaningful input, thank you. You're good people. Guess I will go get myself a nice revolver or such. I'll see what's in the budget.

    but, again, what about on a sunday? Coyote is fair game any time of the year. Who is to say you aren't hunting them on a sunday or simply walking around to see if you run into some with a scattergun? The brush is thick enough that I can see someone using one. There are certain species that are fair game 24/7.

    If you are going hunting then you are going hunting. Follow all the applicable regulations for hunting.
    If you are hiking with hunting implements then you are hunting. Follow all applicable regulations for hunting. Otherwise you are venturing into the world of poaching.
