Jeff-
I just read your premium. Do you really need to bring a hunting license?

My understanding is that one must have a hunting license to participate in a Hunt Test in North Carolina. I have attended other club's tests in the past wherein Wildlife Officers have shown up and checked everyone's license. My recollection is that out of state participants with a license from their State were OK.

Perhaps others on RTF can elaborate.

Thanks Jeff-
I've bought a hunting license the last 4 years, so it's not a problem. I've just never heard of this before at a hunt test.

Here in Virginia, locals must have a hunting license to run a hunt test. Out of state handlers need a hunting license from their home state. You do not have to purchase a Virginia hunting license, to run a dog. I'm sure NC is the same.

When I lived in NC I first heard about needing a hunting license to run a HT. Since I'd never heard this any other place that I had lived I called AKC - I thought since they were now in NC that they might know. I talked to somebody there - don't know a name - who said they had run HT for years in NC and had never heard of this before. But I knew somebody who was a game warden and he said you needed to have a hunting license.

You can pretty much bet on a Wildlife Officer showing up at the Cape Fear RC FT at least 1 day both Spring and Fall. Don't really know why this happens, but you can bet it will. Be prepared.

10 or more years ago wildlife officers showed up at an AKC retriever event that was being held at Duke Power lands I believe. They handed out some big payin paper to folks with no license. More than a few tried to fake it with someone elses license, which made them guilty of contempt of cop.

I judged in North Carolina this spring and had not yet renewed my Tennessee license. The club bought me a non-resident 5-day (I think...) permit so I'd be "legal."

NC F & G guys take their jobs seriously. That's one law you don't want to play with.

In the Peoples Republic of Kalifornia, we were able to lobby against a definition of "take" that included handlers. We had a close call two weeks ago by a different interpretation by regional wardens. We were able to nip the problem in the bud by putting them in contact with the departmental personel that co-authored the legislation with my wife. If we can get concessions from the Dept. of Fish & Game in California, I would think sporting dog activists in other states would be able to make similar achievements.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance in your efforts.
