.308 is not illegal to hunt with in Indiana. You cannot deer hunt with a rifle caliber only straight jacket pistol calibers .357 and up with a case length of 1.16 to 1.625.


I coyote hunt with several rifles well above .308. Hell its legal to squirrel hunt with a .50 bmg if you see fit.





Straight from DNRs site

Predator Calling
It is legal to hunt fox and coyote with the use of mouth- or hand-operated calls, or with the use of recorded calls. Spotlights may be used to take fox and coyote. There are no restrictions on hunting hours or firearms for hunting fox and coyote. It is illegal to hunt fox or coyote from a roadway or with the use of any motor-driven conveyance

What calibers are legal in Indiana?
Say hello in the introductions thread, and I am sure more knowledgable folks will be by to answer your question soon!
That's what I was thinking. Can you even SEE a varmint at 600 yds.
