Senate File Number SF0142

Recommended Posts

There is a file being presented at the state legislature this winter to make wireless remote controlled predator callers legal to use for coyote hunting.

Currently, all wireless remote controlled callers (from foxpro and minaska all the way down to a cass creek) are illegal. There is a loop hole in the "using radio equipment" regulation, but this senate file if passed by both the house and senate will eliminate that loop hole by making wireless remote callers legal for coyote hunting.

Here is the link to look at the language and there are links there to contact your state representative and senator and tell them you want this file to pass.

It's great that this might be changed. I believe it was based on a technicality in the first place. The law was originally passed to ban the use of remote controls with spinning wing decoys such as the Mojo and Lucky Ducks. Technically that meant that remote controls for predator calls were also illegal. I believe congress overlooked this fact the first time they passed it.

My dad bought his Fox Pro w/remote two years ago. Soon after he bought it, he stopped to chat with the warden on the road and the topic of coyote hunting came up. Dad (who was proud to show off his new toy)actually pulled the FoxPro out and demonstrated how well it worked using the remote. All the warden said is, "That is simply AWESOME!", not even mentioning the fact that the remote was technically illegal.

There was a big discussion about the new "hand held" light law as well. People were wondering if mounting a light on their gun was still considered to be "Hand held". Once again, we read so far into this stuff. So, being conerned about this techicality, dad called the warden to ask. He said it was okay.

It is good to get these laws straight though. Taking away all of the grey areas will eliminate confusion.
