Blood tracking becomes legal in Idaho!

According to the 2010 Big Game Hunting Rules posted click here it is now legal to use blood tracking dogs. The actual text says on page 68: "The use of one blood-trailing dog controlled by leash during lawful hunting hours and within 72 hours of hitting a big game animal is allowed to track wounded animals and aid in recovery. A hound hunter permit is not required."

A big thank you to Scott Sorenson for the info. This great news is a cause for celebration in Idaho! Now hunters will be able to legally use dogs to help them recover wounded big game.
