Public Hearing on Field Trial Rule Proposal on June 2, 2010
CONCORD, N.H. – A New Hampshire Fish and Game Department rule proposal establishing a new set of regulations for the conduct of field trials will be discussed at a public hearing on Wednesday, June 2, 2010, at 6:30 p.m., at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H.
The proposal updates the rules currently in place regulating field trials, which are competitive events for hunting dogs. It also would expand the definition of field trials to include "hunt tests," where dogs compete against standards determined by national organizations such as the American Kennel Club.
The complete field trial rulemaking notice, with original and proposed rule language, can be viewed on the Fish and Game website. Go to www.wildnh.com/Legislative/Notices_summary.htm and click on “Field Trial Rules.”
