    Wildlife Law, Regulation, and Falconry was written as a reaction to the draconian and, in many cases, unconstitutional regulations wildlife users have labored under for approximately one hundred years. Falconry regulations in particular exemplify how far laws and regulations have strayed from our constitutional system of a free and limited government.

    Some of the more salient subjects covered are: ownership of harvested wildlife; the Public Trust Doctrine; warrantless administrative searches; the Open Fields Doctrine; nature religious worship; privileges versus rights; and finally, the correction of the mistaken notion that DDT was the cause of the peregrine falcon's population decline-the politics of which has had a devastating effect on wildlife management, exemplified by the abuses of the Endangered Species Act and falconry regulations.
