Coyote check-in locations and times

Coyote check-ins and reimbursements will occur throughout the year, as long as funding remains available. This schedule will be updated monthly.

1 You must complete the online training and registration course before you submit coyotes for reimbursement.

2 If you need to store coyotes before submitting them for reimbursement, the DWR requires you to use one of the following methods:

  • Place the scalp or pelt (with both ears attached) and the lower jaw (at least the front two-thirds of the jaw) into a paper bag so they can dry out. On the outside of the bag, please make a note of the coyote's gender and the coordinates and date of removal.
  • Storage in a freezer is also acceptable, but the jaw and scalp must be sufficiently thawed so the ears can be notched and a tooth removed at the reimbursement location. Before freezing an entire head, place something in the mouth to prop the jaws completely open.

    IMPORTANT: Frozen or rotted samples cannot be processed and may be rejected for payment. Proper disposal of carcasses is the hunter's responsibility.

3 You must bring proof that you completed the registration and training course and a filled out compensation form, including the GPS location where the coyote was taken.

4 If you do not bring all of the required materials, you will not be reimbursed.

Please keep in mind that coyote reimbursement payments may take as long as four to six weeks to arrive. Thousands of coyotes are submitted during the fall and winter months, and we are working to reimburse hunters as quickly as possible.
