Question
Is it legal to hunt coyotes with dogs in WV?

Answer
Hello James,

James, I have no idea.... I specialize in questions on trapping, calling, and hunting coyotes, and other animals. I am not able to keep up with the wildlife laws in all the 50 states. That would be literally hundreds of thousands of laws, rules and regulations...and they are changed, or added to, constantly...not to mention the local laws, rules, and ordinances of each section of each state, and/or county or township... I live in Oklahoma, and am only barely able to keep up with the constantly changing laws here...and here, yes it is legal...but in W.V., I simply don't know... I'm sorry..... I suggest you contact either your state trapping association, or the state wildlife agency.... For that matter even the local wildlife manager or game ranger, or sheriff could probably tell you.

I can answer most basic questions concerning predator trapping and some water trapping. Questions about lures, baits, sets, traps, trap treatment, modification, sizes, equipment, usage, etc. I have been certified by the Okla. Dept. of Wildlife Conservation, the old First Okla. Trapper`s Assoc., and the Okla. State Univ. Extension Service as a trapping instructor, and in years past have given classes to people wishing to learn the sport...I also have a couple decades experience in predator calling and can provide some basic answers to these questions as well.

Experience

30+ years running my own traplines, and 60+ years experience as a hunter, shooter, fisherman, and outdoorsman.

Past/Present Clients
As far as teaching what I know to others. I take this to be what you mean here... I have helped my son, and son in law, as well as given classes to a number of other people in this area, to help get them started in trapping and predator calling... I have had personal instruction from 2 professional government ADC specialists, and I have over 30 years experience running my own traplines, and 60+ years of experience in the outdoors...... I have a friend who is a troop leader with the Boy Scouts. In the past I have done several demonstrations on trapping and predator calling for the boys, and on a number of occasions have helped the troop to set up and run a trapline during the winter, with proceeds going to the troop.
