Hope you find them

Don't misunderstand me, I hope that you find your dogs. I recognize that it is legal and you have the right to hunt with dogs. Actually, I would like to make a hog hunt and watch a pit take down a boar. I really enjoy duck hunting with my lab.
Having said that, there is a lot of responsibility that goes with dog hunting. That type of hunting is more intrusive on others than any type of hunting that I know. Dogs want to do what they love, and that is track game. I believe that if you choose to hunt with dogs, you should have things such as tracking/shock collars to track and contain your dogs as a sign of respect to other hunters. Others have as much right to hunt in solitude as you do with canine company. I hope that you find your dogs unharmed.
I too put in many hours and dollars clearing, fertilizing, and planting so that I can spend quiet mornings with my son in a stand looking for that elusive big buck. My hunt and my son's hunt would be ruined if your loose dogs did what they naturally do and you have no means to control them. Again, good luck this season and I hope that you find your dogs unharmed.
