Hunting license required?

In your state, when you trial/hunt test your dog, is possession of a hunting license required?


I am in New York. No license is required.

Yes in Illinois, if you are an Illinois resident. Never saw it enforced, however.

If you eat at a seafood restaurant do you need a fishing license?

One of the NE states requires them- kinda think it is ME but may be CT or the like.. anyway- no one checks, premium list for test said required maybe 3-4 years ago when last I looked but think it is an understood not going to be adhered to. I guess technically any gunner would have one though.

Not trying to create an issue but going to ask anyway. I totally get there are people that hunt and love to watch the dogs work the fields. To achieve a JH or higher it makes sense to use birds as this would be required to actually hunt with this dog. But...
the WC/WCX seems to be geared more about the retrieve than the hunting aspect. OK, be patient with me I'm just asking!
If the goal is to evaluate the ability or degree of desire to retrieve, why can't they use bumpers vs ducks?

Ok, I think mallards are beautiful and can only imagine how many die just to test the dogs ability to retrieve. Hunting has a purpose, I get this and have plucked many a duck when living on the TX coast. I'm just curious. Be kind

The simple answer is so they can demonstrate nose work during the hunt/retrieving process. I've also seen dogs that would pick up bumpers and refuse a duck/goose. (especially geese in an actual hunting environment) I don't use the scent for bumpers. I just don't like it and haven't ever found it necessary.

No license required in Delaware, but in the last few years they did start a new thing where you get free access to state parks if you show your DE hunting license. It even works for the beaches here that are state parks.

OK, I ran a Derby and I think it was North Carolina (Cape Fear). I needed a license to be legal. Last minute shopping on the computer, and keep in mind for the most part I am computer illiterate, made me legal. And I had actually read a thread in another forum about the Game Wardens showing up at a trial to issue citations for no license.

I will be kind.

I, as a hunter/hunt tester/occasional trialer would never look at a dog that hasn't shown extreme birdiness. We actually test our puppies for birdiness and we don't do it with bumpers. Keep in mind that all dogs retrieve, every dog will carry around his toy. Putting it on command may show what kind of desire the dog has. Strong desire in a dog will make it easier to teach retrieving IMO.

Where I am, no, because CKC doesn't use live flyers in tests. I can see why the gunners/handlers who are shooting would need gun licenses for tests with live flyers.
