I'm originially from Pa where there is no such thing as hunting deer with dogs, so when I moved to Florida about 15 years ago I was floored. At first I had the whole "I'm a better hunter because I don't need a dog to get a deer" thing going, but then when I got to know some of these guys I realized that they had been brought up hunting like this and that it was just different. I don't hunt with dogs but I feel that it should be allowed in certain areas. In Fl, public hunting is usually divided up into still hunting and dog hunting zones. Yes some of the dog runners end up in the still hunting but as was said before, dogs can't read. For the most part, in the 15 or so years i have been hunting in FL, I have not had a problem with any dog runners. As for the stuff going on in Ga, I don't think that the state should be able to tell anyone, hunter or non-hunter, what they can do with their land. If they hae 2 acres and want to run it then they should be able to, as long as their dogs don't encroach on someone else's property. If they have the right to dog hunt on their property their neighbor has the right to not allow dog hunting on thiers.
By the way this is my first post on here and I would just like to say Hi from Tallahassee Florida and that I hope to learn and contribute alot of good info.
