Oregon: Dog training with live birds permitted

Oregon: Dog training with live birds permitted

Field trainers will be able to release and shoot domestically raised birds year-round when they're training hunting dogs and raptors under a new set of rules approved by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission on Thursday reports the Medford Mail Tribune.

The change is designed to bring common training practices in line with Oregon wildlife laws.


Under the new rules, dog trainers and falconers can get a free, self-issued permit through the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's website to release pen-raised pheasants for training, provided the birds are marked properly and the trainer has all the necessary hunting licenses, tags and validations.
