Missouri to appeal ruling on deer hunting regulations

Friday, August 20, 2010 | 5:32 p.m. CDT

JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri plans to appeal a court ruling striking down regulations against the use of dogs and vehicles in hunting deer.

The Missouri Conservation Commission voted Friday to proceed with an appeal of the ruling made earlier this month by a Ripley County judge.

At issue are state regulations that prohibit "motor-driven air, land or water conveyances" while deer hunting, and which say deer cannot be "hunted, pursued, taken or killed with the aid of dogs."

The judge ruled the regulations were unconstitutional because they are vague and overly broad.
