Those Pesky, Pesky Deer Dogs

An occaisional nuissance is one thing that can be periodically tolerated. That may be somewhat acceptable. An on-going, continuing nuissance is something that should not be tolerated, be it legally, or personally. If one of my neighbors has a justifiable problem with me or anything belonging to me, then it is my responsibility to alleviate the problem that I have caused(and with my apology). That is only the correct, and Christian thing to do. What is mine is mine, and what is yours is yours. If either interferes with the other, then it should be the offending party's responsibility to take care of the problem. The "in your face" attitude of these club members tells you that they are full of greed, and couldn't care less about who they offend. To them, it's "strength in numbers". In other words, it's 50 of us, and only one of you. I'll be the first to agree that it's not the dog's fault, but the ignorant owner's. I'm not selling the land that I grew up on, but I'm not taking any more of their "crap', either. After all, I shouldn't have to. I bother NO ONE with my hunting practices. Should I have to endure ruined hunts on my own land because of some group's insistence on it? I don't think it would take one of OJ's lawyers to correctly answer this.......The BIG question is.......what?

Get a live trap big enough for them, Or if they're "friendly" just grab them yourself and ship 'em to the shelter. When the owner comes looking and asks you, tell them where they're at. Warn 'em if they don't keep control of them they'll wind back up there. Soon they'll get tired of running back and forth to the shelter to get their dogs and they'll tie 'em up or install an underground fence. There's an old farmer I know who's 73 or 74 and he only had to do this twice before the Treehugging couple(who did it purposely and didn't care 'cause they were just protecting poor Bambi) down the road got the idea and got a fence. He's never seen those dogs on the farm since

I've been reading this ongoing saga for a couple months now and feel bad for the fella that gets his precious hunting time ruined by these dogs. It's unbelievable to me that this practice is still tolerated (hunting deer with dogs) that is. I too feel that shooting someones dogs is an extreme and contraversial solution but i would get tired real quick of this problem. Why do you suppose this method of hunting is illegal in the vast majority of states? Simple! Its outdated like slavery! By the way...yes i hunt and am a full time taxidermist.

The Game Department is really "working on it"?????

I have contacted many of the "higher-ups" at VDGIF about this problem over the years, and had a little hope that something would be done. The state recently held open "forums" about this problem, with more dog hunting groups showing up than the anti-dog hunters. One such meeting was held 45 miles from me. For some reason, ALL of the dog hunters were well-informed about these meetings, but hardly any of the others(like me) even knew about them. And I specifically asked to be notified when was going to be held LOCALLY. The Game Dept. recorded the number of "dog" hunters that attended, as well as the "others". End results made it look bad for the still or stand hunters, and landowners who are tired of this crap. I would say that it was all "rigged". If you don't know about something, you can't very well attend it. This coming season, I'm going to turn the farm over to some "hungry" hunters to shoot whatever this group's dogs run across the place. This usually makes them mad when somebody shoots the deer that their dogs are running. I'll enjoy black-powder season, and then it will be a free-for-all. ANYBODY IS WELCOME TO COME HUNT FOR FREE.
