    Does anyone in San Diego have any ideas about coyote hunting in San Diego, or within an hour or so drive? Any desert areas, (plaster city, anywhere near Tecate/Campo?) foothills (Warner springs, kitchen creek, backcountry) or info on what can be legally hunted on? (BLM, Cleveland forest?) I believe the season is year round, and you need a hunting license. Any other information would be helpful. Just general info, no family secrets! Thanks!

    Pretty sure any BLM land or Cleveland National is ok. Laguna you can take them with a bow if you can get close enough. I've seen them all over. I've never done it but you can use a Fox Pro or a mouth call to call them in.

    All of the areas you posted just find a wide open area so you can watch them come in. Early morning or sun going down. I know you can't use a spotlight but someone was selling red lights you might look in to.

    I think they are protected in San Diego County ....This is wrong
    just illegal with in city limits, sorry ..






    In San Diego, licensed hunters can hunt coyotes “outside city limits,” says a spokesman for the San Diego Fish and Wildlife office. A ban on prizes won't stop the contests or coyote hunting in general, which has no season or limits on the number of animals.
