Hello All, I am here to provide to the ones who are interested means and access to join Virginia Hunting Dog Alliance. I am not here to debate with you on current issues.
Sportsmen and sportswomen from across Virginia have banded together to form the Virginia Hunting Dog Alliance. http://vahda.org We are rabbit, deer, coon, bear, fox, coyote, squirrel and bird hunting dog owners. We are Sportsmen that hunt with dogs but know that this is a fight for the survival of all hunting, as we know it! This Alliance seeks to get every Hunt Club and Hunting group to join us in the fight to save our Heritage of hunting with Dogs in Virgina by sending us their membership list and the largest donation possible. No donation is too small. This is a joining of groups NOT a replacement for any group or club. We will work together and be stronger!
Hunting with hounds has been targeted in Virginia. The DGIF has proposed to undertake a study with Virginia Tech. It is of up most importance that all hunting dog sportsman and sportswomen be made aware and ask to join Virginia Hunting Dog Alliance to restructure the DGIF Board. Join our fight and preserve your way of hunting for future generations.
Virginia Hunting Dog Alliance has grown to be the largest outdoor sporting dog organization in Virginia! We still have a great deal to do. Our heritage and very culture are under attack. The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries has advanced the timetable for its hunting dog study. Focus groups that were to have met "after the first of the year" are already holding meetings! While they call us alarmist, while we fight to protect our heritage, they are working hard to destroy our tradition of hunting with hounds. Wardens are telling hunters every day that "they" are going to end hunting with dogs in Virginia within five years!
If you want to save your heritage: we need EVERYONE to do the following:
1. Call your two legislators and POLITELY ask them to support the Virginia Hunting Dog Alliance's effort to change the selection of the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries Board of Directors. Tell them that you are counting on them to defend your right to hunt with dogs.
2. Get your hunt club to send us their mailing list with email addresses! Tell everyone you hunt with or know to go to our website http://vahda.org and JOIN NOW!
3. Send Virginia Hunting Dog Alliance a donation now and ask your club to send a donation to help with this fight.
We must get our fellow hunters to help now. Please don't wait for someone else to act. It will only take a few minutes for you to phone your General Assembly members. Even more helpful would be a personal visit to discuss your concerns face to face.
The future of Hound Hunting in Virginia is up to you!
