The proposals were initially discussed Tuesday by county commissioners which led to consensus further talks be held with state legislators as well as possibly taking the matter to roundtable sessions with dog hunters and still hunters.
“I was contacted by property owners who in turn are dog hunters for the reason of hopefully having regulations concerning dog hunting adopted,” Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp said today. “Based on that I contacted a couple of commissioners to meet with these concerned property owners because commissioners are the ones that would start the process of county ordinances.”
Complaints fielded by the sheriff were of some dog hunters trespassing and hunting with dogs without having permission to be on certain property, he said. “It’s important to know these concerned citizens who are dog hunters are not trying to outlaw dog hunting, they are trying to have regulations.”
