Should've called in Caleb Hill for tracking

I don't think you can use a dog at Amistad.

Correct, you are not allowed to use dogs even for tracking

I shot a ram that Friday after thanksgiving on private property, and he crossed into a park hunt area. Caleb made a call into the game warden, and park guy. They both gave us the green light to take the dog in to try and recover. Hope this helps you in the future.

Well, I wish I would have known that, I had a dog available to me. I just figured it was one of those federal rules they wouldn't budge off of.

Might wanna check with the GW, and Park Ranger. I was told it wasn't something they wanted to advertise, but it's kinda crazy to not extend every tool in recovering a wounded animal.
