    something we may have to deal with in the future.....
    A bill recently introduced in the California Legislature would eliminate hunting with dogs.

    Assembly Bill 342 (AB 342), sponsored by Democratic Assemblyman Paul Koretz, would make it illegal for any dog to pursue or kill a mammal. The U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance (USSA) say it would ban bear hunting, fox hunting, rabbit hunting, raccoon hunting and more.

    The USSA says the nation's leading anti-hunting groups including the Humane Society of the United States and the Animal Protection Institute, back the legislation.

    The USSA is encouraging California sportsmen to contact their assemblymen and encourage them to vote against AB 342. To find the name of your assemblyman and for contact information, call (916) 319-2856, or click on the "Legislative Action Center" link near the bottom right-hand corner of the USSA Web site, www.ussportsmen.org.
