I'm going to try to do some predator hunting once deer season closes. I have heard that there is a lot of yotes on the LBL. Have any of you guys hunted it for yotes or any other public land around Nashville ?

Lots of em there...Feburary is pretty cool there...it is open to centerfire and shotguns up to "T" shot size all of Feburary...and you get to go dressed as a predator hunter. most of all of the WMA's around the middle tennessee area are regulated to rimfire and shoutguns up to "4" shot size...if you can secure private land that will allow you to use normal sized guns when big game season closes...good luck and happy calling..

That contest has gotten smaller and smaller every year it seems. They havent been taking a lot of dogs in recent years if i remember right.

Its been gettin pressure very beginning of feb right when it opens then it slows down.

Last year there were 17 killed I believe !! If ruger will let me I can post a link to another site with info and pictures. Or he can pm one of us and get the info and decide if he wants it posted here. It's an awesome hunt.

I thought WMA were rimfire only also other than deer season. But someone else point out on this forum that Jun 1st to Feb 28th Fri, Sat and Sun you can hunt crow with a centerfired weapon (page 14 of hunting regulation). So that means you can hunt coyote with a centerfired weapon on those days as long as you meet the requirements to hunt crows. Am I missing something here?

I dont think you are allowed centerfire for crows on WMA or at least that is what my understanding is...the predator hunting regulations in Tennessee are a little goofy....LBL is different and correct me if i am wrong, it is federal land and actually sets it own seasons and parameters, i dont know when they started the February centerfire predator hunting thing but i have lived in TN since '01 and its has been that since then i believe. And as far as i know during non big game season you can use centerfire for coyotes year round on private property...but that might need a clarification from TWRA

Mid,
In TN on private land during deer season you have to use the legal weapon that is open for deer.
ie: No centerfires during bow or muzzleloader only seasons. \:\(

Mid thanks. Not trying to be argumentative but I read the info about coyote hunting on WMA with centerfire weapon on this thread. http://www.tndeer.com/tndeertalk/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=2910187&page=2#Post2910187

It made sense to me. I hunt at Cheathman WMA I going to email/call the WMA manager and game warren to clear through them before I go.

Driver that the reason we wait till February for the hunt. All deer seasons are closed and centerfire is allowed.
http://forum.finsandfur.net/index.php?board=31.0
Are you sure lbl is considered a wma?? Because we were told you only need your regular hunting license along with the lbl permit.

driver,
LBL is not a wma.

http://www.lbl.org/SmallGameGuide.html


"Coyote, Feral Hogs, Armadillos: may be taken during daylight hours in any open hunting season with weapons specified for that season. Hand, mouth, or electronic calling devices are permitted. During February, center-fire rifles and handguns, and shotguns with shot size T or smaller may be used. Hog hunting with dogs is prohibited."

RUGER, thanks but I am referring to what Mid said about WMA’s not the part about LBL. “most of all of the WMA's around the middle tennessee area are regulated to rimfire and shoutguns up to "4" shot size...”

I see on page 4 of the Tennessee Hunting & Trapping under “What’s New for 2012-2013” Clarified regulations regarding weapon restrictions especially as it pertains to small game and coyote hunting (see page 14 and website for complete details).

I just sent Cheatham WMA manager an email asking him what is correct for after deer season.

Sorry for the confusion.

LBL is Federal land and the rules are a little different. And the coyote hunt that takes place the first weekend of Feb. hasn't gotten smaller its gotten bigger. I have attended a good number of them and can assure you its gotten bigger. Great group of guys to hang out with tho.

I don't know if there are a lot but I have killed a couple and seen several others over the last couple of years. I see a lot of scan on the roads and trails.

Side note: Ft Campbell has a lot but you can only use a rimfire or shotgun and you have to go through there call in system.

One thing, those coyotes are some of the most educated coyotes you will ever find.

For years people have been driving the back roads with their electric callers stuck out the window. They will call and call then move on and do this all day long. They can easy cover 50m miles of back roads and never get out of the truck. This is NOT a legal way of hunting at all but people still do it. it has pissed me off every time I've seen it and I've reported it.

I learned to use a different call that no other predator hunter uses that I know about and I've been able to bring them in.

Ft Campbell does have a lot of dogs but no call in required, they must have coyote specific areas open to use e callers and decoys. Must have hunter ed and state hunting license and the ft Campbell permit.

Thanks. This will be my first year. Trying to figure out a place to go. Think LBL sounds like the best starting point.
