Never tried it , don't knock it!! Here in FL, most Wild Life Management areas have desingnated dog hunting sections. What a man does on his own property is his business. If it bothers you, Move!!

It happens once in awhile , but if it happnes more than once with the same dog I try to identify who owns it and let them know . Are they wrecking deer hunting ? No .

welcome briarhead, only a very few hunts have been ruined by dogs for me, i have had a couple of area's where dogs were a problem, some running wild for months and the owners not caring about the dogs or my hunting, i always try to rectify the situation putting myself in the others shoes, i have several dogs, one stays in a fenced in yard, the other two stay in a pasture, hog wire fence and 125+# dogs
they have escaped a few times, but both times people have called and let me know they have seen them out, we live outside a very small town and everybody knows everybody, and they will generally let you know if somethin aint right, ihave a nieghbor that had 2 pit bull dogs that he refused to keep up, i went to him twice the first time to tell him, the second to show him pictures of his beloved dogs that never leave his property, i live 1/2 mi away the first time my wife saw these dogs on our porch, we raise goats and i don't feel like loosing 50-150$ because somebody dosent feel like the need to keep there animals up, so proper measure will be taken to insure that dosent happen, i don't just shoot dogs to be shootin dogs, if they pose no threat to people or livestock, generally they get a free pass, but if they become a nuisence and their owners have no regards fro their well-being, then i take it upon myself to relieve them of the responsibility, BTW i am a animal lover we have cattle, goats, dogs, cats, but all animals have their place and their roll, i blame the iresponsible owners mostly!!!!!!!

again welcome and i say don't shoot a dog unless if it comes down to a have to issue, if you see the same dogs every hunt and have contacted the owner it is obvious they could care lees about their animals[:@]

whoops i may have misread your question, doggin deer, some love it,others hate it, me i have tried it when i was younger pretty fun but i prefer to see deer in a more natural state, dog hunters don't bother me though, actually just hunting off the property they drive has always worked pretty good for me

Dogs don't ruin hunts.

Is your glass half empty or half full?

You'll actually see more deer movement in areas where dogs run; whether they're your dogs are not.

Besides, except during the rut, how else are you gonna get a mature buck up and moving during the day. You'll be much more successful with anything (dogs, etc) moving the deer.

Good Luck
