The only coon hunters I have ever met personally were very very very nice guys and I would go with them again if given the chance.

Just thought I would add that.

I had to have some fun though.

Having the exact same problems and the vehicle (mule) looks exactly the same. If you were not on the other side of the state, I would think we had the same tresspasser.

I guess you know if you put out Boobie traps you are liable for injuries they might recieve.

It's not a boobie trap if I'm putting up fencing for my future Clydesdale farm.

Very common. I know not all coon hunters are bad but ive never met a good one. Just saying.

I should have made myself clearer, because my post made me sound like a straight doosh bag.

Every coon hunter ive ever talked to when i ask them where they hunt, they always say whereever the dogs take us.
When we first bought our property, the landowner before us, his nephews coon hunted the place. We were/are still friends with them and let them hunt for another yr. Until you could follow there trails for the beer cans and had every other landowner around us mad and ripping down deer stands because of it. Now its all stopped (that we know of). But i do believe it has stopped because i see 30 coons everytime i check my cams.

Its not what happens in life, but how you react to it that matters.

Last year coon hunters we had never seen were sitting in their truck on the road, I guess listening for their dogs. I watched them pull into my neighbors driveway, a single woman. I eased over there in the dark with a handgun, she met them in the driveway with a shotgun. They talked to her for a minute and I stepped into the light of their truck they looked like they had seen a ghost. They havent been back. They said they had permission down the road.

I have no respect for a person who trespasses and treats MY property as if it was theirs!

Any kind of extra pressure effects Mature deer

Truth is unless the land they are hunting is very
Large, they know up front dogs are getting on
other landowners ...IMO
As long as they are there legally they have the same rights as deerhunters. A lot of the coonhunters I know claim that a deerhunter will shoot there dog.I dontknow about that but I do think us hunters could get along better if we didnt sterotype each other. Now dont get me wrong there are good and bad coon and deerhunters.And if they are going to hunt a small property they should have clearance from the other landowners to get there dogs if need be.I used to coonhunt alot when I was a kid and when you have a young pup your training with a seasoned dog it could wind up anywhere before the hunt is through.Miles away. Thats why I quit I got tired of knocking on landowners doors trying to retreive my dogs.I have zero tolerance for any tresspaser!

Most coon hunters that I know don't do it for "the kill" but, the love of what "we" call "mountain music". To us a hound striking a track, cold trailing it through the woods and finally barking treed is music and I know many don't understand that. Coon hides these days aren't worth the time it takes to skin one so many just leave them in the tree or shoot one out every now and then.

There is no excuse for those people, coonhunters or not, to be on your property tresspassing. I have GPS and E-collars on all my dogs. I can see when they range out and enter private property and can call them back with my "buzz or tone" button on the E-collar. I don't have to stand in the woods in the middle of the night and scream for them or tresspass on private land. The dogs can't read and therefore it's not their fault but, the human handler can and shouldn't. A few bad apples ruin it for many and give the "majority" of the honest ones a bad image.
If not for bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all.

Also, the number of large tracts of public land and many home owners buy the adjoining lands. So even if the houndsmen tries to hunt large chunks of public land he still runs the risk of his hounds entering private property. Large farms are gettin gobbled up by development and (I hate to say this) being leased out for deer hunting rights. The woods are getting smaller and we should all do our best to see the others points of view. The houndsmen likes his dogs, the deer hunter likes his peace and quiet, neither should have to give up their legal (that's the important part) method of hunting.

As a side note, many coon hunters are moving to curs since they hunt closer, much like a bird dog and they don't cover as much territory.
