Question. In shotgun territory is it legal to use a rim fire rifle for coyote hunting. More specifically my 17 Cal. HMR in Winnebago county?
According to my thoughts and the info regarding coyote huntin, and small agame in particular , it is legal to use rifles, regarding if caliber, See pages 5,16, and 17 at DNR small game regulations. The only thing I see is the prohibition of any rifle over 22 caliber rimfire or any 22 centerfire or larger during shotgun season. So...you are in the clear otherwise.
