I agree with you 100%. I am just saying that the state may not see it the same way we do. I honestly don't think that a game warden would fine you for doing it, unless he is a newbie straight out of school. That dog your friend had sounds like one heck of a dog. It is wonderful thing when a man, and an animal can work together in perfect sync.

good luck this season!
Hmmm.....really. :crazy: I thought they were bred to hunt rabbits....and were often "side tracked" chasing deer, by mistake. :nod:Nito said:you dont need to learn a Beagle to track dear, that´what they are bred for.
