Default New virginia deer-dog regulations?

If anyone is interested in saving deer-dog hunting in virginia, then check out the website for "Georgia Outdoor News". The state of Georgia has worked out a comprimise that will help preserve hunting with dogs, while preserving the rights of landowners. Sounds pretty cool, and would be nice if Virginia could do the same. What it consists of, is containing dog hunts to a minimum of 1000 continuous acres, with penalties for breaking the law. Clubs would have to "file" for a dog hunting permit, one which keeps the hunt on their own lands, and off of private lands! Dogs would have to be tagged, as well as vehicles and hunters. If anyone is acting against the law, they will be easy to spot, if they are legal, they can hunt as long as they like. Sounds like a "win-win" solution to me. How about you?

i disagree with the 1000 acres. We have pieces we hunt that are 500 hundred acres and the dogs rarely go off the property. so i think it just depends. i mean we can put beagles in a 200 acre piece and the dogs would be fine. I do like the idea of the dogs being tagged though and having a permit and things. but then again that goes back to would they enforce it? ?????????????????? that is the problem now the laws are there but there is nobody to enforce them. if they just had more people to enforce the laws that would solve half the problem.

Er, um, ....yeah, but.

It might cause serious problems for the good dog hunters out there. It also will cause a lot of folks to run their dogs on public lands, forests, WMA's, even more so than they are now! [:'(]

It is legal here in some parts of SC to hunt certain areas of WMA land with dogs, and I have done it all my life. Only problem now is a lot of paper companies and other private landowners are shutting down dog hunting and the nat'l forest is getting fuller every year. International Paper just this year did away with it on less than 2,000 acre tracts, then after that is a case by case basis with a lot of paperwork mixed in. Getting more and more complicated every year for us. If all the yankees would quit buying all our land that we can't afford any more I don't think there would be a problem with dog hunters except for the few that give us a bad name.
