Current regulation in New Hampshire allows the year-round hunting of coyotes. An advocacy group, Voices of Wildlife in New Hampshire, is petitioning the state Fish and Game Department to limit the coyote hunting season to Oct. 15 through March 31.
A similar effort by the group last year was denied by the Fish and Game commission.
