Hunting and falconry law changes proposed in Virginia

Britton reports that Delegate Harvey Morgan of the Virginia legislature has proposed a change to laws affecting the practice of falconry and hunting with dogs.

A summary of the proposed law change reads:

Hunting; practice of falconry; penalty.  Updates state laws on the practice of falconry by (i) removing the limit on possession to three raptors, (ii) broadening the penalty that applies to the intentional removal of transmitting collars on dogs to include any transmitting device on raptors, and (iii) extending the rights of those hunting with dogs that permit the retrieval of such dogs from prohibited lands to those hunting with raptors.
