Just a heads up to my antler dog friends. Check your state’s regulations about running unleashed dogs on public lands during certain times of the year. In Minnesota (for example) it’s illegal to have a dog off leash while on public land, as well as some state forest land, from January through April. This is a protection for winter-stressed deer. Just a heads up, hate to see anyone get in trouble doing something they enjoy.
Good advice, thanks Dan.
