In this area, it's not uncommon for people to shoot porcupines, racoons & coyotes on site, throughout the year, season or not!

Mostly just because of the damage they can cause!

I would never shoot a porcupine out of season. Now use a pitch fork to kill one,I just did that a few days ago,I would. :)
