Proposed Regulation Amendment

4VAC15-70-40. Game: Bobcat. Use of dogs in hunting bobcats during deer season in certain counties and national forests.

Summary

The proposal is to modify the description of the area affected by the regulation in Amherst County.

Text of Regulation

Rationale

Text in numerous Department regulations regarding Amherst County (east or west of Route 29) date back to at least the mid-1940's. During fall 2005, a new Route 29 bypass was completed in Amherst County around Lynchburg and Madison Heights, effectively moving the regulation line. The proposed wording change will return the regulation line to its intended location prior to construction of the new road.
