Maryland Association for Wildlife Conservation is an organization concerned with Maryland legislation relative to hunting with hounds/dogs. Their task is very difficult and requires a paid professional lobbyist to keep anti-hunters and deer hunters at bay so that we can safely enjoy our sport. The legal challenges are endless, and each legislative session brings new issues that must be met. The fact that we rarely hear of these measures is a testament to the effectiveness of this activity. Your individual MAWC dues are used almost totally to cover this expense. Our senior master, Dr. Mess, is our representative to the MAWC Board. He or Master Pardoe would be happy to answer any additional questions you may have. Here is the link for more information:
