    Need a little clarification on the following:

    http://www.dfw.state.or.us/resources/hunting/small_game/regulations/docs/Furbearer_Regulations.pdf
    specifically:
    Badger, Coyote, Nutria, Opossum,
    Porcupine, Spotted Skunk, Striped
    Skunk and Weasel
    -
    Open season entire year.
    -
    Requires appropriate Furtaker’s License to trap (also allows
    hunting), or appropriate Hunting License for Furbearer’s or
    general Hunting License to hunt these species.

    do i need my furtakers license to hunt them? i dont plan on trapping or selling furs. just "varmit" hunting.

    on private land only a hunting license is needed, but what about public land? both Furtakers and hunting lic's?

    Coyotes are categorized as a Predator animal same as Rabbits and Beldings Ground Squirrels (sage rats) you do not need a tag or special license to hunt them. YOU DO HOW EVER need a regular hunting license to hunt them off your own land. You can skin and sell the pelts if you shoot them. Its the Trapping you would need a license for. To the best of my knowledge and I been reading the regs every year since I was 11 (46 years ago)
