You know, I understood what they were trying to do with it. They were trying to implement some accountability for dogs that are allowed to run rampant, which I completely agree with, but as usual with lawmakers their methodology was just plain stupid.

I agree. I think the intention was good. Dog runners for deer being more accountable specifically. However....coon hunters. Really? Blood trailing? really....It could have been worded a lot better. Its almost like they were afraid to specifically offend deer dog runners. Oh well....its dead.

A much simpler would have been to require that the Hunting License Number of the hunter/owner be attached to the collar of any hunting dog...of any kind. That would be simple and cheap, and wouldn't be dog-specific. If you sell/trade/shoot the dog, you just remove it's ID tag and move it to the next one. Anyone caught hunting with a dog without the number on it gets a ticket.


That's kinda how hoop nets (and all other "commercial fishing gear") works now. My license number is on a tag on each legal net.


A landowner with chronic dog problems could catch the dog, take a pic of it's collar/ID number and turn it loose/haul it to the pound in Jackson, then file their complaint based around the ID number. Wouldn't be rocket science to keep up with who the repeat offenders are.

Oh I'm sure there was fear there. The deer dog runners are a powerful lobbying group. But, that said, I wouldn't have a problem obtaining a free permit for my bird dog once a year. Honestly I would take it as a little extra insurance to be able to get her back in case I lost her somehow on a hunt. But to have to get a permit every hunt, for everyone in the party? Now you're asking too much of my valuable time.

Deer hunting in general is a peripheral issue to most folks in MS. About 300k licenses issued in MS with a population in excess of 2M. Deer dog runners are extremely vocal, but I would disagree that they are a powerful lobbying group on a statewide basis. On a local basis, they have the ear of a few legislators. However, at the end of the day people in MS vote for Rs or Ds, not pro-dog or anti-dog deer hunting.

This was simply poorly drafted legislation.
