    Default Ready for hunting

    Just got my hunting licenses (online - how lovely!) and will print out 5 - one to put in the pocket of each hunt coat, one to keep in the truck, one for the trailer. My steady old foxhunter has been out on the hunt trail rides this spring and late summer, so he's all primed and ready. Newly shod on Friday, will be clipping him this week (he's already sprouting a winter coat due to his age), just washed the trailer down this morning so it looks sparkling clean, have the winter blankets all cleaned, re-water proofed, and stacked, ready to use. Now need to polish up the boots to have them shiny by next weekend when we start cubbing.

    Who else is getting ready...and excited?

    ^ A state hunting license. In the US you need a hunting license to hunt and fish wildlife that is not on your own property. The licenses are administered and controlled by the various state governments, and all licensed hunters/fisherman are subject to the rules and regulations and "seasons" for each type of wildlife/fish that can be hunted.

    Foxhunting falls under State control in all forms - with hounds on foot, with hounds on horseback, with traps, with guns, etc. There is a season (length of year) where license holders are allowed to hunt, and other months where hunting is prohibited.

    All foxhunters are required to have a license, and must carry it on their person while engaged in the sport. There are various levels of licenses - some are for juniors, some for limited hunting, some for specific wildlife/fish, some for just local or just county or for statewide hunting.

    I get a statewide hunting license in case I want to travel to different counties to foxhunt. If I want to go to other states, I can buy a limited time license from that state for the period of time I'm hunting there.

    The fees collected by the state are used to help regulate and promote safe hunting, wildlife preservation, state gamelands, and other programs that help support and maintain hunting and fishing.
