Is it legal to rig dogs here in PA? I was just wondering if it is allowed and if you are allowed to make a rig platform for the front of your vehicle and use it. I have been thinking about trying to do this with my squirrel dogs but I am not sure if it is legal or not. I know roading isn't legal. Not that I don't like walking, I love it and thank God that I am good and able, but it would be a great way to get older people out who cannot walk much and get them hunting again and someday I will get old too.

DON'T KNOW ABOUT SQUIRRELS BUT MY REDBONES WILL STRIKE RIGHT OUT OF THE TRUCK WINDOW OR OUT OF THE BOX.I THINK A COON LEAVES ALITTLE MORE SCENT ON THE GROUND.IN THE HEAT OF THE SUMMER.I HUNT AT 4:00 IN THE MORNING.I JUST DRIVE DOWN THE RIVER ROAD AND THE DOGS ALWAYS TELL ME WHERE TO STOP.

Rigging is illegal it is considered vehicle aiding in a hunt

This is another ridiculous law............One of my dogs rigs out of the box really often,I say if the dog is good enough to do it you outta be able to cut loose on the track...

I agree with Killngrill and Buckshot...I can't see how you could make the case that the vehicle aided in the hunt. By that logic, anytime you drove to your hunting spot and cut the dogs loose the vehicle aided in the hunt(it drove you there). You are not persuing game spotted or observed while in operation of the vehicle. Besides, if my dog strikes a coon track and decides that's where she wants to hunt, who am I to disagree. Or perhaps I own one of them babbling hounds everyone enjoys...
