You do realize that TCA 70-4-118 makes it illegal to hunt deer being run by dogs? It doesn't matter if it is your dogs or not.


But would it be illegal to shoot a deer being run by a neighbors dog who happens to run across your property when you are not participating in the neighbors hunt in any way? Don't see how it could be illegal if the shooter isn't participating in the dog hunt. A neighbors pet could just be running a deer and if that's illegal, then you can't shoot that deer?? Sounds crazy to me.

I got to go one one dog deer hunt in south Alabama years ago. About 10 of us were on stand and nobody even got a shot. It's like sitting over bait, no single method of deer hunting guarantees success like that methods detractors may claim. \:\)

Flipper, here in 2013, we should respect others' land to the point that we wouldn't DARE hunt on land that we don't have permission to hunt on. There are few tracts of land in Tennessee that are large enough to ensure that trespassing while dog hunting isn't an issue. Where it's legal and good judgement is used, I have no problem with it. Where it's legal and dog hunters hunt wherever their dogs take them, well, that's another story all together.

Scn, I think it might be the right time to designate an online wildlife officer. Based on the postings on here alone, he could pay for his salary and equipment via fines with no problem. Might even be enough left over to throw a company party or somethin'.

It doesn't mattter. If a deer is being run by dogs it is illegal to shoot. It doesn't matter if it is neighbors pets or not.

What if said dog is silent on track and is behind the deer in question a couple of minutes back? In other words if you had no idea the deer was being chased by a dog would it still be illegal to shoot it?

Spent alot of my youth killin bucks in front of my uncles walkers in Ocala and Apalachicola National Forests. Was just in Steinhatchee catching hogs last month. Have family and friends in Williston. Good times. I'll never pass up the oppurtunity to "end" a good deer race, no matter what state I may be in. ;\)

In Wisconsin this is a tradtion and it's how I learned to "hunt". Except we disn't use dogs, other hunters were the "drivers" and it was called deer drives. It wasn't fun, really, but its now it was done. Everyone sat for opening day, then it was drive deer till the meat poles were full.

Now that I'm an adult, I wold never hunt this way again, nor do I think it's safe. Just about every deer hunting injury you hear about in Wisconsin is either someone not wearing a saftey harness or a deer drive shooting.

Since I begun hunting again, I really do enjoy simply seeing deer, killing one and then eating it is just the bonus. I could sit in a tree stand and see does and small bucks all day, they still get my blood racing. I have no great memories of deer drives of my youth, more the cabin at night with my cousins, uncles, and grandpa.

Your on stand , A good buck come trotting by. You kill it. You are excited beyound believe. You are trying to gather yourself, when in the distance you here a yeping dog. You think thats strange 2 min later it works its barking self right to your deer. You shout at the dog that has no collar for id. It runs away back to where ever it came from. Now is this considered hunting with dogs or an act of nature. or what. the hunter was not hunting with dogs.
