S.C. : Senate adds hunting dog restrictions
The Senate gave final passage Thursday to a bill that prohibits hunters from using dogs to hunt on property without a landowner's permission.

"The Renegade Hunter Act" makes it illegal to use a dog to hunt a property from a road, a right of way, a property line or boundary for which a person does not have written permission, and imposes a minimum fine of $500.

Anyone convicted of violating the law also faces a one-year hunting license suspension for the misdemeanor.

The legislation, sponsored by Sen. Yancey McGill, D-Williamsburg, and approved by the Senate Fish, Game, and Forestry Committee, makes no exceptions whether the hunting dog's release is intentional or unintentional.

The bill is now headed to the House. If it passes the House then Gov. Mark Sanford will have the option of signing it into law.

2. ... hopefully that will keep more dogs alive ...
... rather than 'I dint need no permission to let Rover chase that varmint' <BANG> Rover's now dead because the guy who owns the land the varmint ran onto didn't like BillyBob or his hunting dog, or maybe Rover was all up in the landowner's chicken coop or rabbit hutch ...
