PRATT, Kan. (AP) -- The state has rejected a request that it change the way coyotes can be hunted during deer firearms season.

The law enforcement arm of the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism had asked the agency's Board of Tourism to ban coyote hunters from using two-way radios and hunting from vehicles during regular deer firearm season.

It is legal to use the radios and hunt coyotes from vehicles but those practices are illegal for hunting deer during the 12-day firearm season.

The Pratt Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/12tRh8a ) officers said they had encountered several deer hunters who claimed to be hunting coyotes when they were caught using two-way radios or hunting from vehicles.

Spokesman Mike Miller says the commission will review the issue again in January.
