JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri plans to appeal a court
ruling striking down regulations against the use of dogs and
vehicles in hunting deer.

The Missouri Conservation Commission voted Friday to proceed
with an appeal of the ruling made earlier this month by a Ripley
County judge.

At issue are state regulations that prohibit "motor-driven air,
land or water conveyances" while deer hunting, and which say deer
cannot be "hunted, pursued, taken or killed with the aid of
dogs."

The judge ruled the regulations were unconstitutional because
they are vague and overly broad.
