Outlaw Quadrupeds

Feral Hogs, Coyotes, and Armadillos

Outlaw quadrupeds include the feral hog, an invasive species which has caused severe crop and land damage throughout the state, as well coyotes and armadillos. Licensed hunters may take outlaw quadrupeds year-round during legal shooting hours. These quadrupeds, along with nutria and beaver, may be taken at night on private property by the landowner or his lessee or agent, with the landowner's written permission and contact information in his possession, during certain times of the year; individuals must also have a permit (see below) for nighttime take of these animals from September 1 through the last day of February.
