I just heard something that may be of interest to Colorado hunters.
The DOW has just contracted with a company that uses dogs to find exposives and drugs to help capture poachers. I have seen these dogs work. They can find a 22 buried a foot in the ground. As I understand it the DOW can get about a 98% conviction rate for poachers if they can find the gun. Poachers usually stash the guns when they find the cops closing in on them, so these dogs will be looking for the stashed guns. For the DOW test, two officers stashed a gun about 15 ft up in a tree. They turned the dogs loose a mile away and they found the gun in less than 10 minutes.
