No. This spring I contacted the GW and .....after he inspects the damage they're doing, he will issue you a special permit, or you can hire a Pa certified trapper to remove them.

They are not covered under a furtakers license . They are protected, Just be eaiser to train your dogs. Once time should be enough to teach any dog.

While that might be true from the perspective of a human, it obviously does not apply to the average hunting dog.

What training procedure would you advice dog owners to use to train their dogs to avoid porkies?
