) we need to band together and support each other
FWIW, the houndsman assn wasn't thinking like that when they hired Henry McLees (sp) to lobby and block the statewide fox trapping bill a few yrs ago. Ended up with a "study" that wasted many thousands $$$.
I got no dog in this fight. I have very few customers that sell to the pens.
Overall, I feel it's another step to stop hound hunting for ALL critters eventually. What's pathetic is that the folks who don't want us to use dogs to hunt rabbits or deer or yotes or bear have descendants that more than likely used, or had friends, who fed their families with meat that hounds helped procure.
