Illegal To Us GPS On A Hunting Dog?

Say what?

I hate to speculate, but this looks like something PETA or HSUS would come up with: meaning totally ass back wards!

The state of California has banned the use of GPS tracking collars on hunting dogs.

Most states allow hunters to utilize radio tracking systems, and GPS on their hunting dogs. California has a Code of Regulation in place to prohibits the use of such collars. (California Code of Regulations Title 14, section 265(d) regarding the use of GPS on dog collars while hunting mammals.)

Contrary to what some would claim, or believe, these collars do not provide "unfair advantage to the hunters." The GPS and other tracking systems, are simply tools, utilized to allow the human hunters to be able to keep up and locate their canine hunting companions more efficiently.

Furthermore, these tracking devises have proven extremely valuable to hunters world wide, in locating a dog that has been injured during a hunt, lost or ensnared in dense brush. Legalizing the use of a GPS tracking system on dog collars, will save lives.

Please help us send a message to the California Dept. of Fish and Game, as well as California Legislators, that you support the legalization of using GPS collars on hunting dogs while hunting mammals, by signing this petition.

The Darkside of the HSUS - Part 1

Friday, February 24, 2012

Consumer Alert from HumaneWatch

HSUS raises over $130 million from the public annually, yet gives only 1 percent of that to pet shelters. It doesn’t run any pet shelters. And the animals it does rescue, it dumps off at local shelters?

Too Much Handle?

I am copying and pasting this from a Facebook post by Bridgitte G. Knapp:

Some people in the Catahoula world have said to me that I have too much handle on my dogs or have told others that I have too much handle on my dogs.. I say "screw you" I am sorry to be ugly but I really do not care what these people think any more.

My dogs are the way they are because I spend more time with them then I do my family... I Love My Dogs!!!

I leave my house at 7:20am 5 mornings per week and I get home between 5:30 and 7:00 pm 5 nights a weeks. As soon as I get home, I change clothes and it is out with the dogs. Weekends it is the same thing.. I play, love, feed and clean kennels 7 days a week. I do not care how tired I am because it is not their fault and I always feel better after I came in from being with all of them...

My dogs listen to me and love me and respect me because WE ARE A TEAM and NO OTHER REASON.. Do I scold them and discipline them? You are darn right I do, but for every scold they get for not doing what was asked of them there is way more positive for doing a good job... My dogs get out of their kennels everyday and have free time with me.. Not just every once in a while but EVERYDAY!!!

So again for those who say too much handle... it is love and respect for me that gets the job done. They want to do good for me and I am proud of every dog I have.....
