Mo. appeals court overturns trial court on hunting
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- A state appeals court has reversed an earlier court's ruling that invalidated two Missouri hunting regulations.
A Southeast Missouri trial judge concluded last year that the hunting rules were vague and therefore unconstitutional.
Missouri's Southern District Court of Appeals reversed that ruling earlier this month. The appellate court largely focused on whether the people who challenged the hunting regulations had the legal standing to do so.
Attorneys for the men said Monday they would continue the legal challenge.
The hunting regulations at issue are Conservation Department rules that prohibit the use of a "motor-driven air, land or water conveyances" while deer hunting. The department also has a regulation that states deer cannot be "hunted, pursued, taken or killed with the aid of dogs, in use or possession."
