MDC Looks At Changing Rules On Infrared/Thermal Imagery

Local News Monday, June 1st, 2020

Proposed changes could be in store for coyote hunting and feral hog control across the state.

The Missouri Department of Conservation says they’re considering changes to their Wildlife Code that would allow the use of night vision, infrared and thermal imagery to hunt the animals.

MDC says they began looking at these options at the request of area land owners trying to protect crop and livestock across the state.

If passed, the changes would also benefit hunters who take coyotes between February and March each year.
