    Default Tracking Hunting Dogs onto Private Property

    Saw this today, property owners suing the state in VA over hunting laws
    Allowing tracking dogs onto private property

    https://www.foxnews.com/us/virginia-...unting-dog-law

    It got me wondering if PA has a similar law?

    Yes Pa has a similar law. Google the "Purple Paint Law"

    That's pretty fucked up that you can't stop people from trespassing on your land.

    Yes,that really is.I saw a video of a property owner who confronted dog hunters on his land.The hunter was either an asshole or he was well aware of the law as he was giving the property owner a hard time about it.

    The law only allows hunters to enter private property during deer season
    And every state I know of allows you to shoot dogs that are chasing deer. Could get interesting but I think this will work itself out.

    The law was originally established in 1938
    So stop bitching about it.

    NFA was established in 1934, should we stop bitching about it too?

    Yes- an exception to the criminal trespass statute:
    18 Pa CSA 3503
    (c.1) Applicability.--This section shall not apply to an unarmed person who enters onto posted property for the sole purpose of retrieving a hunting dog.

    In the article, I believe the dogs were after the guys livestock. My thought is unattended dogs on my private property, harassing my stock will be shot fairly quickly.

    I used to set 1 3/4 and #2 traps during trapping season. That tends to make people watch where they let there dogs run.
