Can someone explain to me what has been going on in regards to dog hunting in Halifax county.
I have seen that; however, I know one person that contacted a commissioner and said this resolution is headed for the NCGA and has left the county level. I have been confused over this, but I trust the source that made the contact.
Still has to be passed by the NCGA right?
Interesting the minimum acreage provision applies to running bears, coyotes and foxes not just deer.
And the Apr 1-July 31 provision applies to all dogs, not just dogs chasing deer.
Whoever wrote this, wrote it in a way to prevent folks from claiming they are running other species, not deer.
I sent an email to Commissioner Manning, Jr. His response to me was accusatory that I must be part of the problem since I didn't agree with it. Very offensive. Said he wanted to stop trespassing on land that a person did not have permission to be on. Asked me for my suggestion for a solution. Said he looked forward to hearing my idea. I advised that they enforce the Landowner Protection Act. I asked some questions related to how they expect to police the new ordinance, especially due to the vagueness of the phrasing (i.e. .....allowed to run), why wasn't there any protection for the hunter with dogs included in the ordinance from being wrongly accused, etc. Of course, he quit responding to me. This was signed, sealed and delivered before it made it to the public notice.
