To the that shot the dog in the area of spring bayou or henderson bend, whether it was an accident or not, I don't know. I am glad and you better be thankful we weren't hunting together or even nearby, because the dog probably wouldn't be the only thing being helped out. If it was an accident, I hope the dog is safe. If it was intentional, I hope he/she is deceased. If a buddy of yours shot it, your best bet is to find you some new hunting buddies. One way or the other, know your surroundings. If your dog is not doing what you want, don't shoot it. I am sure if that is the case, it is just as much your fault as it is theirs, should you be shot too? If you thought it deserved it, then probably so. One way or the other, there is always a home for a lab or any type of hunt dog. Anyway I will get off my cypress stump now.
