I saw a couple when I pulled my trail camera a few weeks ago. Iíd say no more or less than other years but I havenít been in there much since July.

What area were you in?

Most years in Oct are good. I have spent 8hrs behind the dog over 2 days in 2 different areas this month and had only one flush so far! I was surprised...

Hi there. I am curious about hunting with the dog in the Blackfoot. Do you keep it on a leash (that doesn't make sense) or is there a hunting exception for the dog on a leash? There is a guy that lives nearby that rides horseback in there that is relentless about dogs being on leashes. Gave me a hard time once out hiking across an open field. Just wondering. My dog isnt a bird dog.

Regulations require dogs on leash, but in practice they don't seem to mind off-leash bird dogs once in the park away from trail heads, and provided the dog is disciplined, not aggressive , chasing game etc.

Dogs are allowed off leash provided they are in the act of hunting during the open bird season. They must be leashed in areas where discharge of a firearm is prohibited ( 400M from a staging area). They must be kept under control as to not harass wildlife or other users. They ask that you leash your dog while passing users on horseback. My beagle isnt exactly a bird dog but they have been ok with him off leash as long as I had the shotgun and discharge permit to prove I was hunting with him.
