Baited Fields and Dove Season: Don't Run Afoul of the Law


The 2016 Georgia Dove season is fast approaching. Opening day for the first part of the season is on September 3rd, 2016. Perhaps one of the most satisfying hunting experiences for every sportsman/ sportswoman, dove season is the first hunting season to begin the fall hunting seasons. It comes before any other season in the fall and offers one of the most challenging experiences for any hunter. It also provides the opportunity to run afoul of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources for hunting over a baited field.O.C.G.A. § 27-3-9 (b)(1) provides in part "it shall be unlawful for any person to hunt any game bird or game animal upon, over, around, or near any place where any corn, wheat, or other grains, salts, apples, or other feed or bait has been placed, exposed, deposited, distributed, or scattered so as to constitute a lure, attraction, or enticement to such birds or animals."Placing any of the above noted materials on a field will be considered baiting as it is an attempt to attract more birds to one field over another non-baited field.

Was Negligence A Factor In My Boating Accident?

While boating does not involve roads or highways, Georgia law on boating negligence is the same for motor vehicles.

Though the negligence of boat operators is often the cause of most boating accidents, the negligent conduct of other boaters and boat passengers may also play a role.

Allergens And Allergic Reactions At School: What You Should Know

Allergens, or any substance that induces an allergy or causes an allergic reaction, can be found practically everywhere. From dander off cats, dogs and other common pets, to common food products like peanuts, fruits and dairy products - even over the counter medications and grass can cause allergic reactions. And the results can be quite serious. Allergens can cause simple itching, or can lead to aspiration and death if not treated immediately. And when it comes to your children, the schoolhouse can be filled with allergens. This is particularly scary, because you may not even be aware that your kids have an allergy until they start having an allergic reaction. Here's a basic look at preparing for and dealing with allergens on school grounds.

FDA Raises Awareness On The High Risks of Vaginal Mesh Implants

In the past two years, there has been a significant increase in the number of physical injuries to and even death of Georgia women who have implanted vaginal mesh implants. As a result, there has also been a spike in the number of personal injury lawsuits filed against vaginal mesh implant manufacturers. 

Advantages of Contingent Attorney's Fees

When your personal injury attorney informs you that they work on a contingent fee basis, this means that he or she gets paid if, and only if, he or she recovers monetary damages for you. This also means your lawyer will be compensated in proportion to the total amount of damages you are awarded.
