I cannot shoot a malnourished, pitiful dog, because of an ignorant owner. This may be my "catch 22". I am, however, going to do as was suggested years ago. I am going to keep a log of the days that my hunting and privacy rights are violated during this season. I am also going to list the names that are on the collars on this site. Entry number 1------. Date of problem-11-17-07 MODERATORS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THIS IS LEGALLY ACCEPTABLE TO NAME NAMES. .......Thanks
Checking on this tesoronut.
I would not advocate shooting or otherwise hurting the dogs, they know no better and you may end up in jail for yur troubles. I would however catch the dogs and keep them until the owners come looking for them, or you call them and then ask them for some sort of explanation. A confrontation will only worsen the problem.
You might also check your local laws concerning deer dogs, here in Florida you have to register your deer dog and have that registration number affixed to your dog thus creating a trail back to the owner. This law was created especially for this problem that you are having and can result in some pretty stiff penalties for the deer dog owner if his dogs are ending up on private property.
