Page 11 of the Hunting and Trapping guide, "Small game hunters may also use a .22 rimfire rifle to harvest coyotes during the small game season."
I believe that was a change for the 2011 season, although it also clearly states on the Dept of Environment and Conservation website (http://www.env.gov.nl.ca/env/wildlife/season_dates/coyote.html): "Holders of a coyote shooting licence are not permitted to use rimfire rifles to hunt coyotes." Wish they'd get their stories straight.
Yeah, I noticed that as well. I'm guessing whomever handles the Website is different than the person taking care of the print media. You wouldn't mind if the inaccuracy didn't have any kind of impact on the reader but when you consider the possibility of fines and potential confiscation of property it's unacceptable.
