By Autumn Shelton, WV Press Association

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Hunters may be able to use leashed dogs to track mortally wounded turkey and wild boar if Senate Bill (SB) 200 becomes state code. 

On Monday, members of the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee passed an amended version of SB 200.

According to counsel, current statute allows leashed dogs to be used to track mortally wounded deer and bear. This new bill adds turkey and wild boar as well as elk (for future hunting opportunities should they be available).
