From June 28 to July 7, 2022, the online version of the 2022-2024 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis included a point in the "It's Unlawful" section (Page 12, previously #41) that stated it was unlawful, to use poison for the hunting, trapping, taking or killing of any wildlife except Wolf, Coyote, Cougar, Lynx, or Bobcat or any bird listed in Schedule C (see "What is Wildlife?" Section).

The point described above was an error. It is unlawful to use poison for the hunting, trapping, taking or killing of any wildlife. The error was corrected prior to the printing of the synopsis.
