Yea, I heard of that barrell deal also, but I also will most likely never get to the point I would use such a tactic. It might make the dog scared of the scent, but it might create a bigger expence for me? I would have to get all new dog houses because all of mine are cut out barrells & I suspect they would never use them again!!!!!:fit::banghead:Ive heard of using the mouse traps before but have never tried it.
It makes sense if you think about it. If I were gonna try it I dont think Id do it till they were runnin' rabbits pretty good though. I wouldnt want em thinking that happened just because they were trailing something.
Ive also heard "old timers" say that you can skin a deer and put the dog and the hide in a plastic barrel and roll it down a hill and that will make a dog stay away from deer scent.
Ive never tried that method either (and probably never will).
