is it legal to hunt with a centerfire rifle below the designated area for coyotes. example being a 25 06. Can you also hunt at night with this set up. I hunt mostly in Macomb county.


Thanks in advance

You can use a rifle in the shotgun zone during daylight hours only except the period of Nov10 thru Nov 30 for hunting anything. Anywhere in the state, including the rifle zone, a rifle may not be used at night.

Ray,

I know he was talking about a center fire rifle and many use "rifle" to describe one, but a RIM FIRE rifle can be used at night when calling predators, correct?

Yes, a rimfire rifle or a shotgun without slugs or buckshot may be used at night for whatever is legal to hunt at night.

Thank you. Just wanted to make sure that there wasn't a change to the nighttime rules.
