I wish it was that way just when turkey season was open in a given area. I am not a night person, in bed every night by 9 PM. Guess I will have to stay up a little later, got 2 pups that are coming out of the starting pen next Friday. They will need to be run, run, run.
I dont know about other states but I copied this from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission website;
Using dogs to chase wildlife for pleasure is prohibited April 1-May 15 with these exceptions: 1) hunting within fox and coyote enclosures, 2) during sanctioned field trials, and 3) chasing for pleasure is allowed from 60 minutes after sunset until 60 minutes before sunrise, from April 1-May 15.
Go to MDWFP click license and law enf,look on the left and click racoon and rabbit permits. It will give you a lot of rules. You got to get a permit , have a tracking system ,have 250 acres to run on, keep them within the boundaries, run 1 hour after dark to 3A.M. I think check on that . MS code 49-7-5 and 49-7-9 . I believe it states it must be private land no WMA's. I think that is the Law now... K.J. Please tell me if I am wrong . This only started a short time ago.. Good luck with your running..
