If the choice was do nothing about the current situation in your area would your rather do nothing or ban dog hunting.

Only two choices.

I no longer run dogs (walkers) was my sport. Here in south Ark. the timber is cut and the only way you will see a deer in some places is because of hounds. I do not belong to a hunting lease or camp and if the dogs was banned it would not affect me. But I was there one time before and there is some good owners out there who have the right heart just as I did when I ran my hounds. NO we do not need to ban this sport just find a way to compromise SIMPLE STUPID. This is the last I will say on this matter I plan on harassing others in the fun threads and let them harass me good day Gentlemen. DW

Hunters tresspass, with and without their dogs. Maybe this issue will one day be a main factor toward hunting demise. Makes me sad , the enemy is here, and he is me.

Because you would throw up a poll with the option of banning another sport. At least when I'm an old man , I will be able to tell my grandkids I stood up for all of legal hunting , and condemed only the lawbreakers,and not the sport. It's the positive way to protect all of hunting.

I just don't see how one would adversely affect the other the way deer dogs affect other methods. BTW I went out bow hunting today. I didn't see a single deer, but the dogs sure were chasing something all around. Never saw the dogs or what they were chasing. My guess is that it wasn't coons. I didn't have my cell phone with me or yes, I would have called.

I still stand behind my idea. Allow land owners or lease holders to destroy dogs at their discretion. The hunters who run their dogs irresponsibly would get the message.

but at what cost? shooting dogs is just a way of begging for confrontation. people have talked about how deer dog hunters are drunks, think about it. there is a dude with a high powered rifle, who is drunk, and now he is angry...

i'm not saying it would happen, but it is a HUGE means of causing trouble for no reason.

Yes, I think you are right.That would be like poking a hornet nest with a short stick.

I disagree, many of the dogs I encounter are left out in the woods by people unwilling to put out the effort to catch them. I agree that angry people with weapons is a recipe for trouble, but it wouldn't take many dogs being shot to fix the problem. On several leases I know, dogs are shot on site anyway, it would merely protect the lease holder from having to indemnify the dog owner.

You know stereotyping dog deer hunters as "drunks" is pretty ignorant!!!

I don't hunt deer with dogs and don't know alot of people that do but to call them drunks with high powered rifles makes me reflect on some of the anti hunting peoples ignorant views .........you know all hunters are drunk rednecks that ride around and shoot poor deer!

Thanks you just helped the ignorants that stereotype ALL of us!!!!!!!:down:

I'd actually rather ban coon dogs than deer dogs. Around here the coon hunters run on whatever lease they want and since they do it at night you can't catch them. A bunch of howling hounds and a pack of 4-wheelers does their fair share of disturbing the wildlife in the area as well.
And to top it off, there are quite a few in this area that just want to use coon hunting as an excuse to go out at night and shoot whatever they can shine a light on.
