A Wrongheaded Proposal
If you live in Virginia your attention is directed to a proposed regulation ammendment by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries that would prohibit the use of mallards for training our dogs. If you read the proposal it is clear that the authors have no first hand experience with or knowledge of hunt tests and field training. Further, it seems abundantly clear that the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is reacting to other nusiances that are a part of their official responsibilities and punishing dog lovers in the process.
As a resident of the Commonwealth you are encouraged to join me in exercising your democratic right to comment on the proposed ammendment. wm
