Coyote Hunting In Western Washington
« on: June 06, 2011, 07:11:41 PM »
Hello, I am just starting out hunting for Coyotes and I was wondering if anyone knew where to hunt Coyotes in Western Washington. I live in Bothell (About 30 min North of Seattle), if there are not any really good spots on this side of the mountains, do you guys know any places over on the east side?

Any help would be much appreciated.  :)

Well it should not be a problem on the eastside.. lot more land .. now as far as the wetside it is not that easy .. less land and lots of brush but your encounters are up close a personal .....

On a more serious note Ellensburg is not to far away and most cattle ranchers would welcome coyote hunting on their property.  Most the time they will advise you in the lay of the land giving good direction.

However all cattle and sheep ranchers have a deep seated belief that a shot at and missed coyote,is a coyote that just got his masters degree.

Grab the shotgun and head out closer to home with some buckshot. Set up near the edge of a clear cut and call... Better yet take the 522 out to the Snohomish river valley and talk to some of the dairy farmers. Coyotes are ALWAYS near a dairy... You don't need to drive far to shoot coyotes. You will better luck if you find a few spots and use a cat in distress call in the more urban areas...

CAMPMEAT and Special T both gave you some good areas but one thing to be very careful of are the No Shooting/No Hunting zones. They can vary greatly from different jursidictions - for instance the State maps and/or regs will not list an area as prohibited while the local county or city may. Same thing with the county maps, they may not list an area as no shooting/hunting but the city will prohibit it and vice-versa. I suggest you make real sure who has jursidiction in the area you plan to hunt at and if there are any restrictions at any level - especially in urban areas. Even shooting/hunting in sparsely populated areas may be restricted for one reason or another. In one case I contacted the Granite Falls police sergeant and he told me it was OK to hunt pretty much anywhere within the city limits (he said just be safe and use common sense around houses, etc - ??? - of course) and also in the particular area I was considering - but when I checked the county map the same area was listed as restricted. Now I always thought the local restrictions prevailed but I was not going to risk getting nailed by the county or anyone else and so I did not hunt in that area.  :bdid:    :twocents:

Yep, just make sure you know what is legal, who, what, where and when. Common sense.
