I want to go out and try and get a fox after work today. I was wondering if theirs any laws agents taking a .22 out into marshes. I was thinking either going out in west kaysville or farmington bay. I saw a fox out in a field at farmington this year but had no idea you could shoot them :evil:

If you are in the WMA (waterfowl management areas) you cannot take a .22 or any other rifle. You can take a shotgun if it's waterfowl season and you have a license. My understanding is you can shoot a fox only under those circumstances within the WMA. Outside of those areas, fox are legal to hunt year round no license required.

Page 17 of the waterfowl guide book states that non-toxic shot is the only shot you may have in your possesion while visiting or hunting any species of wildlife on federal refuges. That means no lead bullets.
I cannot find anything about specific firearms you may want to call the DWR, or sherrif to make sure you can carry a rifle.
