Default blackwater dog hunting

Has anyone heard about the landowner who is suing the state to have dog hunting banned in parts of blackwater around his house? The article said he moved there in 05. My opinion is you knew what you were doing when you moved into the middle of a management area and if you don't like it , relocate. I don't dog hunt but I am totally against ANY hunter losing their rights to hunt how they please. Once our rights are taken from us we will never get them back! I feel hunters as a whole should stop fighting amongst themselves and stick together or it will only get worse! Just curious of everyone's thoughts

Part of the blame is on the state?
For not buying a parcel when it came up for sale within and surrounded by the WMA.

He will have a say so because he is a property owner.

There could be more to the story. I believe the gentleman is part of a group of landowners pushing legislation to ban dog hunting. He actually served 20+ years in the military and returned to the family homestead which was there long before wildlife management areas existed. I dog hunted Blackwater when I was young and there have always been unethical hunters but from the stories I have heard from my customers that have homesteads in and around Blackwater; some are really giving hunting a bad name. I think I will go crawl up a tree now.

Default Dog hunting

I think they should take more dog hunting land away and make it still hunting. That way the people that dog hunt will have even more people/dogs per acre than now.its worked out the last two times they've done it.

I just read the article. The guy I was referring to is in Okaloosa county and is not after money.

That makes a lot of sense. How bout they take away about 50,000 acres of ur still hunting and make it a bird sanctuary and tree hugger friendly environment with NO HUNTING allowed?

Default Ha ha ha ha.

I was being a smart arse. Back in the day you could dog hunt everything north of hwy 4 and there was not many problems. Then they cut that in half years ago and that made it even harder to keep dogs in the dog area. My statement was pointing out that the state has taken something that worked and slowly turned it into chit. I have dog hunted everyday I was off during dog season for the past 15 years.I sit a tree during bow season due to the fact that I am not good enough with a bow to shoot one running wide open. Not yet anyway.
