Good Dogs, Naughty Dogs And Bad Anglers

This week the Outdoor News Hound brings you a story about the most popular
purebred dogs in the U.S., another about a retriever that took the term
“hunting dog” to a new level, and a yet another about a Nebraska angler with
good skills and equally poor judgment. All that and more …. enjoy!

Pennsylvania Moves To Curtail Bobwhite Hunting
Like many other states currently dealing with sharp declines in historic
bobwhite quail populations, Pennsylvania
is looking at ways to help the species rebound to its former levels. And
last week, the state Board of Game Commissioners took a rather drastic step
toward that end, giving preliminary approval to a closure of the bobwhite quail
season statewide beginning with the 2010-11 seasons.

Under the proposal, quail could be hunted only on regulated hunting grounds,
and hunters would be allowed to release pen-raised quail for hunting on public
and private lands by permit.
