    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.

    If Ar. is like is everywhere, but we do have stipulations we can run at night. It started with the coondog hunters and filtered on down to us.
  13. I was under the impression, that only coon hunters could run at night. They buy permits, was told no running of any other dogs even at night. Please help me clarify if you can. Thanks

    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 coon 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..
