My Hunting Dog Accidentally Ran Onto Someone Else's Land. Can I Retrieve It Myself?

It is a crime to hunt on another person's land without their permission. If you want to retrieve your hunting dog from someone else's land then you will not be guilty of this crime. However, if you enter onto their land without permission, then you will most likely be committing a trespass. In addition, the owner of the land may be alarmed at your presence and might think that you are hunting on their land anyways. So, if you want to retrieve your hunting dog, it is probably best that you ask the landowner for permission first.
