wow
i bet he was on some land he didn't belong on, shows how responsible dog hunters are, don't even collect the whole pack, its a shame, dog hunting has been closed for over a month now in that area, i know it is a losing battle to keep on wishing that they would outlaw that crap, but why not make it a law that every dog cut loose have a tracking collar and penalize the owner for leaving the dog behind

Possibly be a hog dog, some people use them. Could possibly be a Treeing Walker coon dog. COULD POSSIBLY BE A STILL HUNTER, LIKE YOU PULLED HIS COLLAR OFF! Automatically the dog hunter was the first to be blamed. PETA love 'hunters' like you. Good luck finding him his owner or a new owner..........

It just boils my blood that the anti dog hunters jump at every chance they get to blame a dog hunter for any & everything! You have these still hunters that are experts on everything outdoors because they watch the outdoor channel. This tuffhuntin 'sportsmen' prolly has never owned a hound or had to put up with the junk I have had to, to be able to hunt the way my family has since Louisiana has had settlers........

yeah
yeah wing you are right, i have never owned a hound, i have never hunted with a hound, i don't understand why you 'have' to hunt with a dog though, yeah it may be a long standing tradition, yeah some people think it is fun, sure some people live to do this but i don't think there are any people out there that do this to live, where is the ethics, you shooting a deer that is worn out from running for it's life, sounds like fun to me, how is me disliking the dog hunting method any different than you disliking still hunting method, it takes skill and time in the field studying a deer to put yourself in the right place at the right time, to be able to put the crosshairs on a big buck, and i am sure it takes skill to kill a deer running through the woods, but not with a shotgun and a deer that has been running for hours to get away from some dog, i saw a small doe a few weeks ago running from some dogs, couldn't even close its mouth it was panting so bad it didn't have time to even stop for a drink or refresh itself, yeah that sounds like a real ethical sport to me, now say your piece i have said mine, this is the last time i will respond on this thread, cause if i continue it will get pulled-->OVER and OUT

Hmmmm
Let me start by saying I emailed the people that started the post and thanked them for being kind enough to help the dog find a owner, old or new.
Once again you 'assumed' I don't still hunt, wrong again. I like it very well in fact. I bow, primitive weapon, still hunt, & dog hunt. I have dog hunted for almost 30 years. In this time I have never seen dogs catch or kill a deer. I have seen them bay crippled or wounded deer. Either way the animal was recovered. Deer that had been hit by vehicles, shot with bows or guns, and deer with diseases.
That being cleared up now, you are bashing something that you really aren't fluent in. I can't make you like dog hunting, and I'm not trying to. Just make sure you cover all the angles...make sure you go after rabbit hunters & their beagels, bird hunters and their pointers, coon hunters and their tree dogs, hog hunters and their catch dogs (the poor little pigs tongues hang out also &cthey even sqeal!), the duck hunters and their retrivers (swimming in all that cold water), and don't forget falconry they use birds to kill all sorts of things. They use their claws to catch their prey, then their beaks to kill it.
You like to still hunt and thats fine. Your methond of take is really bushwacking a deer thats either hungry and only looking for something to eat or that is trying to reproduce. I'm just calling it what it is........You think its 'sporting' to shoot a animal doing the 2 things I mentioned above. I respect that, I do it as well.
My outlook on this 'sporting part'... When I jump a deer with dogs that I feed and take care of every day, rain or shine, all year long is 'sporting'. When I jump that deer, he without a shadow of a doubt, knows he is the quarry. When I kill him with a 'RIFLE', I am proud of all the work, time, effort, and 'SKILL'........I once again want to apoligize. This post shouldn't have ever went where it was taken. I felt the need to take up for something I love! My last comment as well. Peace/Out

good post
Good post, Wingbone. Hunting deer with dogs IS a sport, and done correctly it does not interfere with surrounding property owners.

Good luck finding the ole boy a good home. If I had room, I'd take him. But we only run beagles these days.

More deer are killed over a pile of corn or food plots then in front the dogs. I am a still and dog hunter check the statistic of clubs who dump corn and clubs who run dogs . My opinion on it if your going to stop dog hunting then you might as well just stop hunting for everyone fair is fair .

Music
I took my 7 year old on his first dog hunt this year. When we got to our spot I told him listen for those beagles comin. They're gonna sound like music to your ears. Well the group killed 3 that day and had some great races.

We got home and the next day he said 'Daddy, they really did sound like music to my ears. They sounded like opera.' I never laughed so hard. You ought to hear him imitate that pack of dogs. He can't wait to go back next year!
