    Default MISSISSIPPI WILDLIFE AND FISHERES PROPOSED LAW CHANGE

    The Hunt Test/Field Trial community in Mississippi needs your help! The Mississippi Department of Wildlife has provided a public notice of its intent to issue rules to regulate hunt tests/field trials in Mississippi. Here is the link to a .pdf of the proposed rule:

    http://www.mdwfp.com/Level2/Wildlife...ls%20-%20turke
    y%20dogs.pdf

    As the proposed regulation is worded right now, all out-of-state hunt testers (unless exempt) would be required to buy a $30.00 7-day small game hunting license (that is the cheapest one). If the test/trial were on a WMA, then they would need ANOTHER $30.00 MWA permit, for a total of $60.00 in extra dollars, which is about the same as the premium to run 2 days. The out of state Hunt Test participant who wants to come run a couple of tests either has to buy multiple 7 day liscences (to "hunt" an already dead tame duck with poppers) or buy an much more expensive season long out of state license.

    To be exempt as a MS resident, you would have to be younger than 16, older than 65, blind, paraplegic, multiple amputee, have a VA total service related disability, or a SSA total disability.

    The proposed regulation mentions pen raised quail, but makes no express provision for shooting live flyer ducks, even if pen-raised.

    The clubs in Mississippi cannot survive solely on Mississippi residents for hunt tests and field trials. If you run tests in MS, or just support the sport, we need your help fighting this with a letter. Just say "I have run tests in MS, or I would like to run tests in MS, but this proposed rule will make it much less likely for me to support the Mississippi AKC/UKC clubs with my dollars."

    Please send your comments to:

    Better that than have someone overlook it.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.
