Proposed Regulation Amendment

4VAC15-90-260. Game: Deer. Hunting with dogs prohibited in certain counties and areas.

Summary

The proposal is to modify the description of the area in Amherst County in which it is prohibited to hunt deer with dogs.

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.
