To all you that complain about dogs and ATV's and all the other "intrusive" things in your hunting area. Take a look at what I deal with just to the south of my primary hunting area. This is BG12 and the duck hunting fellows last day of hunting in the picture I snatched from another thread. Now all you that think of all of these factors that "ruin" your hunt think for a minute you mighty hunters. These guys shooting up the sky just about 300 yards from my most favorite place on the earth? shouldnt be a deer in the country HUH???





the last minute of shooting hours, Jan 07, on soarkrebel's lease...


This one didnt leave............




Nor did this one...............



If you look at BG12's picture and note the tree line to the left ,you can make out a depression like area. that is my pasture and both of these deer were taken there.

I have dealt with duck hunters a long time ....not just BG12.......note when they do shoot em up .......I usually have deer move!!!!!!
I have seen deer come from this huge beaver pond (and go into it) when hog dogs were working in it.
I don't know maybe my deer are just smarter than some folks deer as to what to run from and what not.


You know I am a little picky about who I would let even GO into that area.......people that is!

But I have been around deer long enough to know that they WILL NOT LEAVE an area just because people are shooting ducks,atv's are riding roads and yes even if dogs are in the area!!!!!!!

Congrats on your deer :thumb: It's a known fact that deer get accustomed to daily activity, but on the other hand that is different then a dog hot on ones trail.

I will agree deer will shag when a dogs trailing. But in the days that dogs were used a lot in the area I remember seeing deer run in circles.
I had a doe many moons ago that ran past my stand in a pine forest we called the reynolds field, just to the west of where BG's picture was taken.
She ran in a large circle almost perfect every time ...now the little beagles that were behind her .......well some distance .......couldnt keep up with her.

That doe cut south right in front of my stand and them dogs were lost. they ran that circle again several times after she left..........she was smart and knew what to do.

I have seen them run across our pasture just all out and those dogs trying to figure out where they went.

Those deer hit that swamp and cross it and lose those dogs.

I don't have any deer dogs because I can't justify the cost and up keep for them. But they are alot of fun to hear running a deer.
Why some think this is hard on an animal that has survived millions of years of predators chasing them is beyond me.

I do not condone running deer year round but during the fall it is ok by me.

Why people would get so upset that a deer from another piece of property runs onto theirs with a dog trailing some distance behind is beyond me.
There is no way a human hunter can keep up with either so there is no hunter in hot pursuit coming across that line.

Yeah they drive the roads ......well I have news for those deer dog haters so do non -deer doggers!

Yeah in the lull of the season when the deer are mainly active at night or chasing in the thickets I don't mind a nieghbors dog slipping over or a duck hunter blasting away ..........it helps make those deer move around so as to be seen.

But do you think I ought to give BG12 the boot?:razz:

Yeah kick him to the curve...haha:biggrin: That's funny at the place we have been duck hunting the past few years it's a known fact that we help out the deer hunters while were hunting, because we push the deer down a small bottleneck.

Actually like I just posted in another thread there is such a thing as controlled dog running, which I'm all for, but what I have witnessed in AR is camps that have 20 or so dogs and just let them run wild. I do not agree with this at all.

Your right manybeards when you let a dog go out on the trail it's gone.
Wherever the deer goes until the deer can screw them up.

Hey what other animal will expend so much energy chasing an animal it can't catch .......until it's absolutely wore smack out?????
Is there any???????

you big dummy! i was actually trespassing when that pic was taken, in JAN OF 07!!! and your beloved field is to the right in that pic. your plot is right behind the pines in the middle of the pic. you need to build a new stand in that field, the other one looked like it might fall over if i get kicked out:cool: . maybe you can just hunt out of the elevated duck blind we are gonna build, right where your plot hits the waters edge:thumb: BG12
