For this past season I have seen a decrease in cam pics and actual deer sightings. I have a neighbor who continues to let 2-3 of his 20 plus dogs run wild every morning and of course they end up running deer on my property. I consider him a friend and addressed this many times and it seems he keeps them in when he knows Im hunting but the way I see it the damage is done! I originally requested that the dogs stay put up from October to January but for some reason he has mistaken my kindness for weakness. I recently told him that I had some coyote sightings on the cams and would need to put out some traps which seem to raise some concerns on his part.. He said they would need to be checked every 24 hrs and I told him that was not an option. I have numerous cam pics with his dogs urinating on my feeders and trophy rocks. Need some advise on how to handle this with out losing our friendship since im not on the property full time. And just an FYI He is a retired Attorney!

Thanks for any input
Ron

Refer your attorney neighbor to Tennessee Code 44-8-408. then call animal control. That is a State law, not a local ordinance.

(b) The owner of a dog commits an offense if that dog goes uncontrolled by the owner upon the premises of another without the consent of the owner of the premises or other person authorized to give consent, or goes uncontrolled by the owner upon a highway, public road, street or any other place open to the public generally.

Remind him that Tennessee does have a leash law.

Thanks DH that should be a good start. I have animals of my own that stay locked up always when im on the property. I know most of my neighbors and hunting buddys say shot em but im trying my best to stay away from that but after getting up at 5 sitting from 6-9 watching deer in the plot and at 910 here come the dogs and the am hunt is done! gets pretty frustrating.

I feel your pain Ron,I had the same issue a few years back,just one season it stopped,not sure what happend.But I know who your talking about.My only solution would be SSS,but its your property and your neighbor,so if SSS isn't an option for you,you might just have to get very blunt with him. George my uncle had some issues with his dogs.A whole pack of his dogs jumped Georges and almost killed it.And you know who,didn't have much to say about it.Best of luck to you Ron.

The legal way is the only way you can be successful. If he is a lawyer, he should know that he is ultimately liable if one of the dogs attacks someone.

Maybe there is a limit on how many dogs a person can have in your county?

If you were serious about the trapping part, you may want to read TCA 70-4-120. It requires your traps to be run at least every 36 hours, prohibits on top of the ground sets unless using cushion jaw, and makes the trapper liable for any damages to any person's dog caught in the trap.
