The Natural Resources Commission met recently to discuss hunting regulations.

Now there will be more chances to hunt certain critters.

The NRC decided coyotes will be joining opossums on the list of animals that can be hunted year-round in Michigan.

They also made changes to nighttime hunting regulations for small mammals like fox and raccoon.

Now the nighttime hunting seasons for those animals coincide with their daytime seasons.
