Oregon Senate Bill 723 would make it illegal to host or participate in hunting contests, tournaments or derbies that have the objective of taking wildlife, which could include pen-raised gamebirds, for prizes or entertainment. This bill would ban any event where dogs are trained that awards a ribbon, ranking, medal or a trophy. 
 
While it appears the sponsor was after coyote killing contests, the language in this bill would also ban birddog field trials which would also greatly impact the gamebird industry. Violators could face up to 364 days in jail and a $6,250 fine. 
 
The bill will receive a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Feb. 28 at 8:30 a.m. in room HR C of the Oregon State Capitol building.
