That poor boy needs to brush up on his deer hunting jargon. Since when is "still hunting" treestand hunting?

In this day of property being purchased/leased specifically for deer hunting, using dogs for hunting deer is a thing of the past. As fun as it might be for the hunters, it must push a number of property owners/lessees over the edge to have a pack of dogs drive every deer off their land in one morning. I know I would do something very illegal if it happened on my land.

Depends on where you are at. I was a member of a dog hunting club in florida that was 105,000 acres.

Running deer dogs has definitely been under pressure for many, many years. At last check I think there were only 9 states that allowed it and the number of counties or days of the season open to running dogs (or both) was shrinking little bit by little bit.

I have no problem with it where legal. I also recognize that it is a practice that runs culturally deep in certain states. As I hunt in MS, I can tell you that dog pressure has a tremendous impact upon the deer. Its not that big of a deal for me personally, I just don't hunt deer there anymore after dog season opens on Dec 17th.

While I would never hunt over bait, I would consider participating in a deer dogging event, if I were invited to do so by the right people, just for the experience of it.

The word "depends" covers an awful lot of territory. Find a 100,000 acre hunting club in Tennessee, just one. I understand the use of dogs in really large, thick areas scattered throughout the south. We don't have much of that here in Tennessee and I know that dogging isn't limited to these really thick areas in other states. My contention is that there is no difference in poaching and running deer dogs on someone's property that the dog hunters have no permission to be on. I have experienced the invasion of dog hunters in Mississippi firsthand. It was not a pleasant experience for me or the dog hunters.

Yeah, I can agree with that. Deer dogging definitely requires a large property. In MS, the Nt'l forrest are popular for this practice.

Using dogs was more common (and arguably, more necessary) when the populations were more scarce. It was a tactic that allowed for covering large amounts of ground.

As the populations have gotten larger and property sizes have gotten smaller, it's obvious why it is less popular nowadays for the hunters and the property owners. In many areas of the country, it's simply unnecessary and probably even counter-productive (if there are enough deer around, how does it make sense to chase 40 of them out of their comfort zone in an effort to shoot 2 or 3?).

I still think it's cool to preserve old ways of doing things as long as we can, assuming there are acceptable places for those activities. That's a tough assumption, though...

I never said anything about Tennessee. This was if Florida on big timber company tracts. Used tracking collars and never had a problem with trespassing. We also never turned out more hounds than we coulld handle, but there are those that do. We never hunted like the guy in the article. We always started a single trail dog on a track and when it got close to jumping we would turn a few more to it. Theres always going to be slob hunters that give respectful hunters a bad name. These smaller couple thousand acre clubs are just asking for conflict, definitely takes a very large chunk of land to avoid run ins.
