Wild dogs suck and I have known people that would kill them, but I never could. You never know if
it is someone's pet and I've had too many dogs to do it anyway.

If regular it will be bad for your deer sightings. But if the dogs aren't regular on your place it can be
a good opportunity. Deer hate dogs and will run from a dog bark much quicker than most other things,
so if you are set up you might catch a good buck sneaking out. Last year I had a nice doe come by
at 10 yards with a dog chasing her. I didn't hear the dog at that point and with her looking back
all nervous I just knew Mr. Mossy Horns was back there. As soon as she moves past me - woof, woof. [:@]

LeBeau, I thought the same as you until it happened to me a couple of times. Then I realized that (1) I shouldn't shoot at a running deer, and (2), if I saw a deer looking back, I'd probably wait for Mr.Bighorns to arrive and not realize I should shoot at thefirst deeruntil it was too late. There's a small chance that a dog running deer might produce a real shot opportunity, but I htink it's pretty unlikely.

I really like dogs, in general. I think that most of them are great, sometimes even admirable,animals. I wouldn't shoot at a dog with any collar on it (except maybe with a BB or pellet gun) unless I'd already had a talk with the owner and come to a realization that the owner just didn't give a dang and the dogs just weren't going to stop running deer on my land. I figure an owner like that doesn't warrant consideration and the dogs are probably being mistreated/neglected anyways.A dog without a collar is not much better than a coyote, IMO, and no one is likely to miss it. I think I'd shoot any dog, collar or not, with something less than lethal force first, as a warning, before I'd shoot with something that would be likely to kill it, no matter what the laws are.

Ok fella,looks like you have been a member here for about 30 seconds and your wanting to give lessons on ethics,1st of all most of us here are deer hunters,for BIG deer,not some scrubby lil fork horns ,and i set on stand 12 hrs most days ,daylight till dark ,and to have some junky lil mutt come by barking and raising he##,at every deer they jump just to push them to another farm ,well that aint cool...now if you want to get on the phone and call your lil dog catcher and have him come out there running all over your spot and doing worst damage you do that.now if some lil pooch comes up to me waggin his tail im not gona blast him ,ill load him up and take him to town and drop him off,if i can catch him,but a true deer chasing dog [stray ,wild ]when it sees a man he takes out like wildfire now thats the ones you want to remove for good as soon as possible.these are the same ones that kill livestock as well.and someone said something but stray ferrel house cats also,,,they will ruin your baby rabbit ,birds ,turkey chicks just anything they can catch and kill ,and most of the time kill it and walk away,,just to kill..we hunt them also..so everyone needs to do what they see fit on there farm or where they hunt.And dont judge someone for trying to better there deer hunting spot.
