I dont want to see deer hunting with dog outlaw but I understand where the still hunter or coming from. Here is what I think will help the situation. But state you opinion and lets not turn this into a fight lets try to work together. And if you dont mind state if you a dog hunter are still hunter so we can see if one side or the other fills its not fair and should be ajusted.

In order to run deer with hound the land owner or leasee has to register with the state at no fee. If the dogs get on a individual's property more then 2 times in a season there will be a fine of $1000 or $100 per dog with ever is greater. If more then 5 times they loss there permit to run dog for 2 years.

If the dogs get off your property on to surrounding property more then 4 time a fine of $1000 or $100 per dog what ever is greater. That meaning all the surrounding land owner property combined. After 7 total times the land owner or leasee will loose there permit for 2 years.

If running on less then 5000 acers must use a smalles breed then walkers. Example Walker/Beagle.

Dogs will get away sometime thats needs to be understood. I think if we could stop people from doing it on purpose we my be able to get a grip on the situation. Add some ideas but try to be fair. If you dont think its fair explain why.

Me and a hunting buddy have a disagreement so I will ask you guy. It is about Alexandria State Forest which is a WMA. Can you hunt squirrels with a dog and if so when can you start? The way I read it, it says small game is the same as outside except closed on a few days. So I would think you could bring a dog. He says if it doent say you can bring a dog then you can't bring one. If someone has the know can you please

In Grassy Lake this weekend and was talking to a gamewarden and he told me a bunch of hunters got their tire cut at one of the boat launches. I heard it was some duck hunter not geting along does anyone know more on this story

This is my first year bow hunting, and all I have to hunt is WMA's. My first hunt I killed a doe, 2nd hunt let a yearling walk, 3rd hunt got eat up by mosquitos did not see nothing so I sayed I was not going back intill a cool front. Well I was offshore & came in today so I desided to go check out my spot. I was walking though the wood and was almost there & one blew at me and ran off, I walk about 15 more yard & anouther blew by that time I could see the tree that I climb & I counted 5 but think there was 7 or 8 so I'm going back in the morning & I'm pump.

I just bought my first bow disapointed with the service and advice thay gave my so now I need help from real bowhunters. I bought a parker wildfire extreme on the box it say it shoots 300fps. I have it tured all the way up to 70# & 28'draw. I hunt only on puplic land so I need advice on what typy of arrow & broadhead to shoot. The guy where i bought it sayed they shot it and it was shooting 266 but it was set at
about 63# so im not for shure what it shoot

Thanks for the advice sitting down I can pull it back just fine and hold it steady but I can fill a lot more stress in my shoulders after i turned it up so i will be go back to about 65#. About what weight arrow would yall recommend. And fixed or mech. thats what im debating the most. I will only be hunting WMAs

What skill does it take? Have you ever trained a dog to do anything beside side, come, and stay? By looking at your profile you probley pay someone to do that for you. I'm 29 but most my generation belives in sending a dog to school to teach them something. O yea I guess it takes skill to plant a food plot and throw out corn then sit there and let the deer hunt you. Yeah the great deer hunter!! You said Most people that do it are just as inbred as the dogs themselves. You should'nt go there thats a little over the line. Your grandparents probley run dog in there day so what would that make you? LOL. And then for you to talk of respect after saying that. You one of those people that wants respect but disrespect other that you dont even know.

A comment titled: you lazy face it in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

Hunter, you say you spend a lot of money on your dogs but what about all the money I spend on my food plots? Equipment, fuel, seed, feeders, etc.
Now that is your word from your comment. Then yu say this.I get in the woods looking for sign tracking my game. Now with is it do you put out food and let the deer hunt you while you sit in your stand, or do you get out there and look for sign and hunt the sign. I only hunt WMA's no box stands, no bait. Bait is for people that can't find the deer.

What club you in I would like to speak with find out if yall have problem with hounds, or you just going by what other have told you. Hey thats a good way to prove me wrong.

A comment titled: bt the way in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

a dog hunter pay for a lease just like you. He will buy my sack of feed in a years time to feed a pack of hound then you will buy sacks of corn, and dog feed is 2x the price of corn. Then worm med. and mybe a few vet bills. I have done both trust my way more exspenive to care for a pack of hound. Now if you dont know what it take to care for a pack of hound SHUT UP because you have no idea.

A comment titled: little E in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

Boy little E you are lazy. Can't use dogs for deer, or rabbit, but it's ok to use them for duck. Let me guess you duck hunt thats the reason why it's ok. Well sounds to me like you just too lazy to get a duck ofter you shoot it. I'm a still hunter and I want duck hunting outlaw because these people dont respect the deer hunt either. I can be set up in a stand and 15 min. before daylight they came their setting and start shooting ducks. Then if the ducks ant flying the talk the whole time. That's not right why should my hunt be interruped by anouther hunter.

A comment titled: easy in response to a report titled: Dog hunting rules

the person that caught you dogs knows were they came from. Then if you have the permit you can tell the judge. We are not after the person turning the dogs out. We after the land owners the dogs came from.

January 20, 2013 at 2:36pm
A comment titled: thats ok in response to a report titled: Dog hunting rules

thats why the land owner or person leasing the land is responable he can take it to the person running the dogs. And once the land owner or leasee's permit is taken away no one can run deer dogs on the land. Have to make the owner/leasee responable he can't hide.

A comment titled: I'm starting a new one in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

I agree should be voted on but to outlaw hunting with dog does that include duck, rabbit, squirrel.

I will start a new post with some ideas on what I think will help controll the matter. But be real dogs will get on other property. Think about it house pets do it, so don't think hunting dog want.

P.S. If the dog is bread for hunting only and most dont make good pet I think their is nothing wrong with culling. We do it with deer, and every other kind of animal that is not intended as pets. Anyway yall let see how many people agree with my new post if anyone.

A comment titled: dogs in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

Let me put it so everyone can relate. In our country we are having gun debates. The problem is not the guns its what people do with the gun. And it would'nt be right to take everyone's gun because of a few people. Samething we are having a dog debate. The problem is not the dogs its how some people use them. It would'nt be right to take everyone's dog because of a few people. If you outlaw deer hound the one's that dont care about their dogs will turn them loose with no callors and could careless if they get them back. By what I hear on here thet type or the problem so you would'nt prevent anything. Look at chicken fighting it's outlawed. I see just as many people with fighting chicken today as I did when it was legal. So to outlaw deer hound you just punish the good guy. The ones that are the problem will tell you they are running coyotes. You need a smart sollution not just we'll make it illegel that stops no one

A comment titled: your deer in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

the man that shot it. you may offer them some meat. but the deer is yours the hunting party would all split the meat if someone in the party killed it.

A comment titled: agree 100% in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

Agree with both of you. No running during the rut and lets try something about dog on other peoples property . Can't be 100% prevented but can be controlled. But lets not do away with dog hunting or kill dog lets work together. To do away with dog hunting is not working together. And because the dog end up on your property does not mean its on purpose.

I think your may be missing my point I'm not against you. Give a little and take a little. Yes area 6 has a lot of dog days and in the middle of the rut that should be changed.

A comment titled: ? in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

I understand fully my point is we have almost all of the season to still hunt. The very last weeks we have to share with dog hunter but thats not enough we want it all. Why dont we have a dog only season so that we not interfering with each other. We have a still hunt only to make sure there is no dog intrefering with still hunter. Lets make a dog only. But you brought up a good point about the cow thing. But dont look at just your situation. Put yourself in there shoes they have only a few weeks and the still hunter are trying to take that as well.

A comment titled: hahaha in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

My spelling sucks all the time I did'nt have my wife to read over it LOL. Not mad just makeing a point. I really hope I don't make everyone mad it's only for a few still hunter that think that way. Like I said I only still hunt when it come to deer.

I know it sucks to have your hunt ruined by other hunters but where do we draw the line. Lets say we out law dog hunting because it ruins your hunt. I have had lots of duck hunters shoting ducks close to where I deer hunt at even walk withen 50 yards of me to get to their spot. So do we outlaw that also they they dont ruin our hunts. I'm just saying still hunter have most the season let the dog hunter have the few week they still have.

A comment titled: sound like democrates in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

For a dog hunter to turn a dog loose on one side of your property and line the other side it probley means they have rights on both sides of you. Which brings this up if a dog hunter has 10,000 acers and someone leases 300 acers inside that 10,000 guess what you have. A still hunter crying. By the way I am a still hunter and do not run deer hounds at all. But what I dont think is right is that still hunter get 80% of the season to hunt like they want. Then when the dog hunter can hunt there few weeks the still hunter go to crying. Shut down still hunting when dog season open then no one's is mested up. But no thats not good enough for still hunter they want stop till they get it all. SPOILED LETTEL BRATS that is our society. People with lots of land means lots of money so yes they will get there way. Sounds like democrates to me lots of money, cry babys, get there way. Yeah thats the definition of democrates

A comment titled: and thats that in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

I wrote that to all the still hunter out there that have the attitude of I'll shoot that damn dog if it come on my property. Because I know your reading this and I know what you thinking. To all the hunter that want to work together this is not intended to you in anyway. I allways call the people who deer hunt close to where I want to bring my dog and if they are hunting that morning I want go there, and I dont bring him on the weekends, but some time stuff happens and is no one's fault and if my dog get shot well you know.

I have a sq. dog and if that happen to me it would be on. I would wait intill the opening weekend next year and the night before the started I would burn every stand and spray round up on every food plot and distroy every feed. Hey they want to play games what ever no rules. You crossed the line so now theres no lines.
