Here is what us lonely still hunters get to see. Not just the white flag of a deer passing by. My season still hunting last year was 2-8 points 1-6 point.

Do you always hunt at night?

Cajun2: You accomplish more by 3:00 am than most hunters accomplish all day. Just think what you could have killed in the day light.

I only hunt daylight hours. These pictures show me they are there until the dogs which should not be there run them off. I like to still hunt. Some people like to hunt with dogs thats ok if thats what they like. The bad part is when the old hounds come running through then the deer that are there at night go away.

Cajun2: I Still hunt, and I hunt with my dogs. Trust me the deer have not gone anywhere, they are still in the area before, during and long after any dog or dogs have run through the area.
I have killed deer before any dog was turned lose, when the dogs were running other deer in the area, and finally I have killed deer minutes after the dogs have passed running other deer. Deer will not leave the country just because they hear some dogs running, do you think they haul A--every time they hear a tree fall 'NO' They have all heard it before. Be patience, God knows the deer are.

Do you think the deer go underground when a pack of dogs pass through? If the people around your land run dogs, where are the deer going if they leave your land? That's a buncha BULL. The dog running might make the deer nocturnal, but from the picture they obviously already are. By the way, I have never dog hunted, but the clubs around us do, and its never really been a problem. Most of the time if their dogs are running a deer on your property, the deer came from their property anyway.

Hey cajun hunter, I have never hunted with dogs so I am not getting into that subject. Every other post on this site is still hunters fighting with dog hunters. I think its rediculous but I have to agree with Buckinrut. I read an article in a deer hunting magazine where they did a study on how far the dogs run the deer off. I dont remember all of the exact numbers but they used like 25 collared deer with tracking devices on them. They ran the dogs through the stretch of woods the deer were in and all the deer did was made a huge circle and ended up right back where the dogs jumped them in the first place.
